Supporting, festive or rather pub atmosphere... Our selection of bars to watch PSG matches in Paris


Highlights: PSG fans will be looking for a screen that broadcasts their team. The number of bars experienced in the broadcasting of sports in Paris is easily counted in hundreds. The most emblematic address of Paris at this level is undoubtedly Le Perroquet. For fans of sports, drinks and especially rugby, the rue Princesse is an ode to the broadcast of matches over a pint. For those who would have preferred to be at the stadium than at the bar, nothing like addresses ready to welcome people or broadcast the match on the big screen.

For those fleeing loneliness when it comes to posing in front of a Red and Blue match on TV, these are not the addresses that

"So, where are we watching this game?" This question, any PSG supporter or sports fan who wanted to share a poster outside with his friends has already asked himself. And, while the club of the capital begins a week during which it will face Dortmund in the Champions League (this Tuesday, September 19, at 21 hours) then Marseille in Ligue 1 (Sunday, 20:45), there is no doubt that the Ile-de-France will be numerous in breweries, bars and other drinking establishments in search of a screen that broadcasts their team.

For a 100% PSG atmosphere

The number of bars experienced in the broadcasting of sports in Paris is easily counted in hundreds, probably thousands. However, those who claim Parisian supporterism are less numerous than the fingers of one hand.

In the fourteenth arrondissement, the most emblematic address of Paris at this level is undoubtedly Le Perroquet, one of the few whose decoration is entirely dedicated to the club of the capital. Scarves, jerseys, posters, caps cover the walls and surround the TV screen which obviously does not miss any poster.

Another well-known address for supporters is a stone's throw from Bastille, the Bistrot des familles (XIth) or "chez Kiki" for friends, a haunt of former subscribers of the Parisian corners. Not far from the Gare de l'Est, Café A (Xe) is also renowned for offering a beautiful Parisian experience on PSG match nights.

For fans of wide open spaces and big atmospheres

For those who would have preferred to be at the stadium than at the bar and want to compensate at best, nothing like addresses ready to welcome people or even broadcast the match on the big screen. In this category, we note for example Le Sacré (IIe), which regularly organizes parties with So Foot magazine for big games, on the theme of "two rooms, two atmospheres", one for each team.

Fans of sports, drinks and especially rugby know very well, otherwise, the rue Princesse in Paris, an ode to the broadcast of matches over a pint. For example, there is one of the addresses of the channel The Frog, although you will have more chance to see a PSG match in their location on rue Saint-Denis (IIe).

In the same street, you can find one of the well-known squares of sports broadcasting in Paris: the Hall's Beer Tavern, a bar, you guessed it, beer with many screens.

Another very lively district is the Grands Boulevards. There is the famous Café Oz, boulevard de Montmartre (9th). Not far away, there is also the Thirsty Mad Cat, rue Montmartre, near the Bourse, with its six screens and its beautiful lively atmosphere.

For those who do not live in the heart of Paris and still want to find this type of atmosphere, Belushi's offers two superb addresses in the North, one in the nineteenth arrondissement near the Canal Saint-Martin, the other in the Xe near the Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est, both with a large space and many screens of all sizes. In the South, l'Heure sup is a nice cocktail bar that claims to be "100% sports".

For a "pub" atmosphere

If there's one thing the British do as well – or better – than the French, it's enjoying a good game over a drink. In this vein, we have already mentioned the Café Oz and the Frog, reference chains in Paris. You can also linger on The Lions, rue du Chevaleret (13th), a classic address and appreciated by athletes and PSG supporters.

Another well-known pub in Paris, the Long Hop, rue Frédéric Sauton (5th) is a classic and broadcasts many sporting events, even if it is rather rugby that is in the spotlight. The Multiplex, for its part, should delight PSG supporters and has expensive accessories for each pub: games, table football and darts.

For a cozier atmosphere

And for those who are less adept at games watched standing, tight as sardines, the smell of sweat and the sticky ground that often goes with bars, there are still breweries. In this category, we have for example the Madeleine, boulevard de Bonne-Nouvelle in the district of Grands Boulevards (IIe), a quieter and more elegant establishment to watch its games at a table.

There are, otherwise, the very classic Au Bureau, which is more generally found in the suburbs of Paris but which has a beautiful address in the fifteenth arrondissement, at the end of the rue du Commerce. The lucky ones will be able to enjoy their match in a comfortable sofa.

Of course, the list is not exhaustive. And above all, the place to watch your PSG matches remains the one where you feel best, wherever it is and whatever the atmosphere.
