In need of recommendations? We got you covered.

If you're a rugby enthusiast then there is a good chance you are heading to Paris for the Rugby World Cup. However, your time there needn't be all scrums and tackles. Paris, aka the City of Light, also has some of the best bars and restaurants in the world, and we are putting together some of the best places to head for you to get your food and drink game covered.

We're dishing on the eight best places to chow down and sip up while soaking in all the Rugby World Cup action in Paris.

Dirty Dick

Location: 10 Rue Frochot, 75009 Paris, France

Easily one of the best bars in the world, this tiki spot may have a questionable name but has class vibes and atmosphere. It's also extremely close to the Moulin Rouge if you're looking to check it out too while in Paris.

Galway Irish Pub

Location: 13 Quai des Grands Augustins, 75006 Paris, France


We wouldn't be Irish people abroad if we didn't seek out an Irish bar to have a drink in.

Galway Irish pub has great live music, and some of the best pints that you will source in the city.


Location: 20 Rue Keller, 75011 Paris, France

This beautiful bar has a focus on vinyls, and the music and drinks are always 10/10. A must visit while you're in Paris.

Le Servan


Location: 32 Rue Saint-Maur, 75011 Paris, France

This restaurant is a mash-up of French and South East Asian cuisine, the sister location of popular spot Double Dragon, which is also worth a visit.

Yard Cave & Restaurant

Location: 6 Rue de Mont-Louis, 75011 Paris, France

If you are into your natural wines, there's no better place for it than Yard Cave.

Les Arlots


Location: 136 Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, 75010 Paris, France

Don't be fooled by the size of this restaurant, it may be small but it is mighty, and a thoroughly unpretentious bistro where we absolutely recommend ordering the sausage and mash.

Le Café des Musées

Location: 9 Rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris, France

Le Café de Musées has been cooking up a storm for almost a century, and does some of the best classic French cooking in the country. Our top recommendation is the beef bourguinion; just trust us on this one.

Marché des Enfants Rouges


Location: 39 Rue de Bretagne in the Marais arrondissement

If you're looking for more of a walk around then the Marchés des Enfants Rouges is perfect. This open air market is the oldest covered market in the city and does some unbelievable food. We recommend heading here for some lunch in the afternoon before you get stuck into watching the rugby.
