La Buvette

La Buvette, opened in 2013, is perhaps the most stylish and intimate wine bar of its generation in Paris. Its Lilliputian confines are the size of the average e-cigarette shop, and yet manage to contain four small tables, a thin zinc bar, a prep kitchen, and in the rear, an authoritative-looking wine fridge. Scrawled on a wall-mounted mirror is the menu: a rotating array of highbrow nibbles, ranging from orange-zested white broad beans in olive oil to thick-cut nubs of andouille au lard, or intestine sausage laced with lardo.  >> Read More

L'Entente restaurant in Paris | parisbymouth.com

L’Entente

Three cheers to L’Entente founder Oliver Woodhead for having arrived at such an apt name for his curiously dainty, all-day- service “British brasserie” near Opéra. An entente is a diplomatic understanding between nations; any understanding, of course, is what British and French cultures have notably failed to acquire of one another over the last thousand years. >> Read More

Bombardier English pub in Paris | Paris by Mouth

The Bombardier

A hub for English culture, this pub proudly pours “real ales” from Wells & Young’s, beers in classic English styles you won’t find elsewhere in Paris. Traditional English pub fare is served at lunch and a full English breakfast is offered on weekends. With rugby and soccer/football matches on TV and a pub quiz every Sunday, it would be easy to think you were in England.  >> Read More

A la Bière craft beer bar in Paris | Paris by Mouth

A la Bière Comme à la Bière

“Boissons vivantes & épicerie funk” announces the tagline on this small, brightly decorated storefront. Inside, you’ll find nearly 200 different bottled craft beers from Europe and North America, many kept chilled for immediate consumption. The colorful interior is cheerful and inviting, and the enthusiasm of owners Jean-Baptiste and Dédé is infectious. >> Read More

Bouillon Belge craft beer bar in Paris | Paris by Mouth

Le Bouillon Belge

Lots and lots of different beers, served inexpensively and without pretense – that’s the draw at this welcoming, convivial bar in the far reaches of Eastern Paris. The selection is predominantly Belgian, as the name would suggest, but you’ll find a handful of French and German brews in the collection of at least 100 bottles on offer. >> Read More

Les Trois 8

Revolutionary for Paris, this shoebox-sized bar just north of the lively Oberkampf district has a lot to offer lovers of craft beer… and their natural wine-drinking friends, too. French beer is well-represented both on the eight rotating taps and in the 80 or so bottles on offer, featuring such breweries as Outland (Ile-de-France), Sainte-Crucienne (Alsace), and Northmaen (Normandy). French bar snacks (cheese and charcuterie boards) and a small selection of natural wines available by the bottle or glass round out the menu. Service is friendly and knowledgeable, eager to help you find just the beverage you’re after, even if it’s something you’ve never tried before.  >> Read More

Académie de la Bière

Long a favorite among students, the bustling “Beer Academy” is a worthwhile stop for any enthusiast of Belgian beer. Food is served at all hours of the day, and the two large patios are covered and heated in the winter.

La Fine Mousse

Boasting the very best selection of craft beers on tap in Paris, as well as a bottle collection that brings the total offer up to 150 different beers, La Fine Mousse is certainly one of the city’s most well-stocked beer bars.  It’s also one of the most expensive.  French craft beers share real estate with lesser-known Belgians and German brews, with room left over for the USA, the Netherlands, and less-represented places like Norway and Italy to show off their brewing prowess.  The meticulously curated beer list includes deep tracks from Brasserie St. Germain and Brewdog, and the descriptions (in French or English) will help you find just the beer you’re looking for.  Serious beer geeks abound, the quiet atmosphere of the early evening eventually giving way to a lively party vibe as the social lubricant kicks in. >> Read More

Le Sous-Bock

Don't be discouraged by the bog-standard beers on tap at this dark, European-style sports bar. The bottled beer selection is extensive, with brews from France and Belgium dominating the options, and a small collection of vintage beers is a unique addition to the menu.

Le SuperCoin

Far off the beaten path, this place is one of Paris' very best beer bars. The three rotating taps include two French craft beers and one bière ordinaire, and the bottle menu presents five pages of small-production craft beers brewed in France.

La Moustache Blanche

Hipster beer geekiness pervades this shop just off the Place de la Bastille, with a record player spinning the blues, a faux phone box housing the English beers, and a periodic table of beer styles on the wall. Prices are very fair, and Guillaume, the friendly young owner is rightly proud of his ever-growing collection which boasts 500 beers from all over the world.

Paris St-Bière

An alimentation génerale turned beer shrine, this tiny shop still carries convenience food alongside its floor-to-ceiling shelves of good beer. A refrigerated case promises cold beer to go, and the shop is open until very late on weeknights, just in case.

Peoples Drug Store

With a host of international beers, a speedy bottle-chilling machine, and a row of chess tables at patrons' disposal, Guillaume Lucas' shop is a welcome addition to the rue des Martyrs. A good place to pick up something on the way to a party or picnic, but you can also pass a few hours here, playing chess and sipping quality beer.

Pommier

Located just inside the covered market at Place d'Aligre, this little shop is easy to miss, nearly hidden behind its own refrigerated snack case. But it's a gem, with a solid assortment of Belgian, German, and French beers at very low prices.

Falstaff

Amid the multitude of crêperies on this little street sits this good old-fashioned beer bar. It's cozy and bustling, with classic rock on the stereo, beer-friendly eats, and maybe, just maybe, NFL football on TV. Service is speedy and well-informed, and the hooks along the walls and bar are appreciated by purse-carriers and coat-wearers everywhere. In addition to the 13 beers on tap, you'll find 120 different bottled beers. Prices are a little steep, but the convivial ambiance and tasty Belgian beers are certainly worth a splurge now and then.

Express de Lyon

Although it appears on first glance like any other train station-adjacent café-bar, this place is a must for serious beer geeks in Paris. Their rotating selection of taps includes kooky craft beers from all around Europe, as well as more well-known Belgians like Chouffe, Chimay and Leffe.

La Dernière Goutte

Terroir-driven, estate-bottled, organic and biodynamic wines from small producers are the specialty at this beloved shop, run for almost 20 years by Juan Sanchez. Especially strong in their selection of growers’ Champagnes and bottles from the Rhone Valley. Stop by on Saturdays for their free tastings with winemakers from 11am-7:30pm. Check our calendar of Paris food & wine events to find out which winemakers they’ll be hosting this week.

Patricia Wells (2011) “Alas, 168 euros poorer and barely sated, we left wondering what this place was all about. Food no better than any Parisian Vietnamese carryout. Rubbery pork dumplings, dipping sauces that tasted like ketchup, tasteless shrimp…”
