I've been here a good few times as I live and work nearby. Erin, Sable and Declan are so so friendly and always make time to have a chat with customers. Beers and food are top quality and they always show the important matches. Great atmosphere. Great music. Definitely recommend.

Stumbled upon this place after a dinner on our first day in the city. The pub had an awesome hole in the wall feel with good drink prices. The bartender was awesome and told us about some places we should eat and go visit. If you're in Paris and want a good place to chill and throw back some drinks,... More

We visited the pub after been to France vs Scotland. We were expecting some rugby fans but unfortunately they were doing a quiz which took very long. We had a drink and moved on.

Great little pub located at Pont Neuf Bridge. The bar has many screens showing live sport. One night we were in there was a live band on and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere. Innis & Gunn on tap and a good selection of drinks available. Have had many an enjoyable night here!

Brilliant wee pub. Actually the first Scottish bar abroad I've been to where there's Scottish people. Pub quiz was class. A home away from home. Manager was a good lad that gave a free shot! Definitely go for an Innes & Gunn. No Tennents sadly haha

Very cost pub in a place you would never expect it. Quite friendly and a nice change from all the cafes. Not cheap (as you would expect in the area it is in) but worth a visit if you fancy a change.

I went first for a random meetup Christmas party which turned into a wild fun karaoke night with Great jelloshots made by Sable dressed as Ms Claus and came back the next night for a pub quiz and then football viewing. Opened till 5am every night!

On the hunt for a good irish bar we stumbled upon the Highlander and said sure why not! And was one of my better ideas. Was a great place to enjoy a few drinks, cosy atmosphere and friendly staff. The christmas tunes helped also but later there was live music which was good. If in Paris...make sure to pop in... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
