Bar and Ping Pong in Paris : Play, drink and Boogie!

Bar and ping pong in Paris is the perfect way to unwind after a hectic day’s sightseeing. Now, courtesy of the Gossima, the city’s first ping pong bar, you can.

Situated at the corner of rue des Bleuets and rue Victor Gelez at Menilmontant, Gossima also offers live music performances onstage. What more could you ask for apart from the chance to retire to the welcoming surroundings of the Hotel Marais Bastille after your workout?
