Top 10 Best Places to Enjoy the French Open

May 19, 2015

By Florian


Being one of the 4 major tennis tournaments in the world, the French Open, Roland Garros, is a big deal in Paris. A lot of things happen during the event, from late May to early June. There are many ways to enjoy Roland Garros, from being inside the stadium and seeing the iconic word famous tennis players play live, to the giant screens under the Eiffel Tower of the Hôtel de Ville. Here is our list of the 10 best places to enjoy this year’s French Open Roland Garros.

Eiffel Tower

From May 24 to June 7, anyone that has forgotten to buy his tickets to the French Open will be able to follow every match on a giant screen under the Eiffel Tower. This free event also includes a real clay surface tennis court, a Roland Garros souvenir boutique as well as shops of the official event sponsors.

Moose Bar

There are two ways to describe the Moose Bar. It is a very famous Canadian pub in Paris, but because we recommend it for the French Open, this means that it is also one of the city’s best sports bars. With countless screens, you will be sure not to miss a single action during Roland Garros, and still get thirst quenching beer and delicious poutine (Quebec specialty)!

  • Where: The Moose Bar, 16 rue des Quatre Vents, 75006 Paris
  • Metro: lines 4/10 - Odéon
  • When: Open every day from 11AM to midnight

BHV / Marais

Until June 20, the popular department store BHV / Marais is putting the tennis tournament in the spotlight. 4 highlights are not to be missed: an Wall of Fame on the tennis great achievements, the new Roland Garros stadium revealed, the panama hat pop-up store Panamaapaname, and a pop-up café where you can watch the games live.

  • Where: 25 Rue Frédéric Sauton, 75005 Paris
  • Metro: lines 1/11 – Hôtel de Ville
  • When: 10am to 8pm every day (Wednesdays until 9pm). Closed on Sunday

The Thistle

The Thistle might not be the most impressive Scottish pub in Paris, not is it the biggest or the most popular, but it is one of the friendliest and most laid back. And that is just a great thing when watching a tennis game. Beer, cocktails or coffee, you choose your drink, the Thistle provides the rest.


Located right next to the iconic Moulin Rouge, the O’Sullivans At The Mill is a very large Irish pub and generally packed, especially on weekends. It’s a great place to meet people, chat and have a drink. The tennis games of Roland Garros will be shown on the flat giant screens of the bar.

  • Where: 92 Boulevard de Clichy, 75018 Paris
  • Metro: line 2 – Blanche
  • When: 3pm to 5:30am every day, and from noon to 6am on weekends.

Hotel de Ville

In front of the beautiful Hôtel de Ville (City Hall), giant screens will be installed so that everyone can enjoy the tennis games. This is one of the best areas to watch the French Open on a sunny day, and to make it even cozier, bring bread, cheese and a bottle of rosé!

  • Where: Hôtel de Ville, Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, 75004 Paris
  • Metro: lines 1/11 – Hôtel de Ville
  • When : each time there is a match

The Long Hop

Located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, the Long Hop is a friendly English pub attracting a lot of international students. The 3 floors of the pub, all with many flat screens, are a great place to watch any international sporting event, including the French Open. And if you want to take a break, you’ll always be able to play darts or pool!

  • Where: 25 Rue Frédéric Sauton, 75005 Paris
  • Metro : line 10 – Maubert Mutualité
  • When : Monday through Friday from 4pm to 2am, weekends from 2pm to 2 am


You’ll find quite a lot of Corcoran’s Irish pubs in Paris, but should we have to recommend one, it would be the one on the Grands Boulevards. People working in the area generally gather here after work, and for Roland Garros, the Corcoran’s will surely offer sweet deals on beers and burgers.

  • Where: 23 Boulevard Poissonnière 75009 Paris
  • Metro: Lines 8/9 – Bonne Nouvelle
  • When: 9am to 2am every day, to 3am on Wednesdays, to 5am on Thursdays and Fridays. Opens at 11 on weekends.

Sir Winston

Located just a stone’s throw away from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées Avenue, Sir Winston is one of the oldest English pubs in Paris. In the intimacy of its baroque architecture and old style chic décor, the major matches of the French Open will be retransmitted here. Fun times, but always in a classy and elegant way.

  • Where: 5 Rue de Presbourg, 75116 Paris
  • Metro: Lines 1//2/6 – Charles de Gaulle Etoile
  • When: 9am to 4am every day

In the Stadium

Of course, the best and most beautiful place to see the French Open is inside the Roland Garros stadium complex. Not only will you be in the heart of the action, with both international players visible, but with a bit of strategy, you will be able to get a few autographs! This is a must for the die-hard tennis fans!
