Typically, we enter bars with our friends and exit with the same group of people. The Social Bar offers something unique. The objective is to assist people in making new friends, regardless of whether they are introverts or not (of course without forcing anyone). You are required to wear a nametag with your details on it as soon as you enter the building. After that, it's time for you to play! You can engage in a variety of games and activities that will help you know other people and encourage others to approach you.

This bar is appropriately titled for another reason in addition to its primary objective, which is to introduce you to new people. The bar was funded by 175 people through a  crowdfunding campaign, making them 175 co-patrons. They contribute 50% of their profits to the associations.

Deux Point Zéro, the Digital One

Two bartenders came up with the idea of launching Deux Point Zéro. Before settling in Paris to impart their creativity and vision of a modern bar, the O'Neil brothers had to travel a lot to understand the industry. This bar is "connected" but what is the meaning of this? In this bar, you must first upload the bar app that is available on the Android and Apple Stores. You can then use this app to vote for the next song on the playlist or answer a few polls on the bar and its cocktails.

Basically, you'll engage in a lot of conversation with other guests and the staff, and every time you vote in a poll, you'll earn points that could win you goodies or even a drink. For those who enjoy playing games, you can play video games or take part in activities like music quizzes. While enjoying one of the unique cocktails on the menu, you will have fun and share a memorable experience with the other guests of the bar.

La Lucha Libre, Ready to Fight?

La Lucha Libre is a little unusual. You can find the exuberant ambiance of this pub in the Latin Quarter, right in the center of the city. Step into the ring and battle a real professional wrestler if you dare after having a drink with their delicious house burger! 

You did read that accurately. You can wrestle with a friend (dressed as sumo) or professional wrestlers in the basement's actual wrestling ring. A piece of advice for those who want to wrestle: don't become too drunk! The wrestler won't pretend, and you can end up returning to your table in extremely terrible shape.

Do you play video games or are you a gamer? Would you like to play on your old Playstation 2 while enjoying a fine cocktail or beer? You are in the ideal location! In the capital city, The Reset Bar is THE spot to play old video games.

You will get both video games and arcade games. And since the games are self-service, you only need to purchase a drink to play; no money is required to access them and enjoy yourself. You will get different varieties of beers, wines, and champagne on the menu in addition to the many different cocktails (and also non-alcoholic drinks). A saucisson platter to share with friends, a hot dog, or a vegetarian dish is all in the options for those who are a little peckish.

Although everyone is quite polite, you shouldn't monopolize the games for an extended period of time. It's the ideal location to spend quality time with your gaming buddies, or why not make some new ones?
