Formerly a brasserie built in 1880, this building then became a stable during the World War II, and is today the most pleasant billiard hall in the capital. The ceiling is no less than eight meters (26 feet) high! 16 tables (eight American billiards, five French billiards, one snooker, two pool) as well as a mini-casino. The Academy (which isn't a billiards school although if you keep your ears open you can learn a lot) is frequented by amateurs and professionals. Open till 6a, so you can miss the peak times.
The latest venture from the people who brought you the pub of the same name in the Rue St-André-des-Arts, Corcoran's on the Boulevard de Clichy (Pigalle district) has succeeded in creating a fairly authentic atmosphere thanks to an old-fashioned bar, plenty of old Irish ads on the walls, and above all a legitimate personnel and clientele of expatriates. Irish, French, Americans and Brits mingle here at happy hour or during big rugby and soccer matches on the big screen; the place also attracts quite a few tourists from nearby Pigalle and Montmartre.
The Harp Bar is a lively local Irish pub and bar brilliantly located in the 9th arrondisment a short walk from the iconic Moulin Rouge, La Cigale and Montmartre. The pub and bar is quite small, and a great place to stop by for a casual after-work drink or bite. The menu features a good selection of classic beer and droughts like Guinness, John Smiths and Magners as well as a nice choice of Irish whiskeys while wine, spirits and cocktails are also available. Especially lively during a Celtics match, the bar is a nice place to socialize, mingle, catch a game or chat with fellow patrons in a convivial atmosphere. An official Celtic FC supporters pub, the staff are friendly and welcoming to locals and tourists alike. Stop by for a classic pint of Guinness and catch the latest matches live.
What was once a famous watering hole and subsequently a shop, now functions as a brilliant gallery for art. The plethora of events that take place inside the 300-square meter (3229 square feet) gallery space creates a vibrant milieu of creativity, much to the delight of art lovers. Apart from photography exhibitions and screening of documentaries, the workshops, lectures and debates held here are so profound that these become hot topics of discussion over a cup of steaming coffee at the in-house cafe. The book store is where you can collect various books on photography and other relevant topics of interest.

Paul Mège, owner and architect of the establishment, was able to restore the cozy charm of a car of the mythical Orient-Express.
