Sports Bars: They Exist

Many travelers over the years have asked me the best place in Paris to catch a televised sports match of their team “back home”. There are quite a few “sports bars” in Paris, but usually you have to call every single one in advance to find out if they’re broadcasting the one you want to watch. To help save you the trouble, check out the bilingual website AlloMatch, which tracks which ones have the license to show US football matches (college and pro), searchable by several criteria including whether the sound will be ON, which isn’t always a given. Do be sure to call ahead once you have this narrowed list, just to be sure, and ask to reserve a table where you can see the screen if necessary (especially on weekend nights).
