I had the absolute pleasure of going to The Long Hop to watch the Super Bowl this year and was blown away by this heavily packed, American friendly bar.
First off, the place will get PACKED for a popular American sporting event, regardless of the time. The Super Bowl was Midnight through 4:30 AM and it was jam packed, regardless of the slaughter. The atmosphere was very friendly and it's one of those bars you meet your best friend in.
As far as the drinks go, it's best to order straight from the bar. And be forwarned that the drinks here are not cheap. Pints start at 6 Euro and go up from there. A friend ordered 3 "shots of Jameson that were maybe 1 ounce each (1/3 under the standard shot) and the total was 28 I believe. Crazy.
Other than the expensive drinks here, this will make you feel like you're back home in the states if you find yourself abroad in Paris and need some comfort.
Ask the bartender for the WiFi code. Overall, I think this place is sort of a casual bar that probably gets crowded at night, but I was here for a few drinks on a Sunday during the day. The place was not crowded at all, and we were able to grab seats at the bar. Drink prices are a bit high for the venue but I'm assuming they're more reasonable during happy hour. Bartenders were not too chatty, but didn't ignore me either.
Are you American or Brit? Do you love American or Brit sports (or, as Brits incorrectly say, "sport"-- those Brits... they are still learning how to speak English ;-) And yet... with all the wonderful things the U.S. and U.K. have to offer... you STILL love Paris more than life itself? Well, then... THIS is the place for you! Extremely friendly staff, wonderful pub food and, late in the evening, a great place to meet someone! One of my favorite local haunts. A "must try."
Came in for an FA Cup match and the bartender was very accommodating to not just get me a good TV but to give me audio, despite the fact that I could only afford a 3 euro mango juice. Friendly, warm, accommodating bar, with some (not accidental) good-looking staff :-)
Definitely an Anglo/Anglophone hangout spot.
The place was packed every time we walked by, so we had to check it out. Very fun atmosphere, the bartenders speak English fluently. Late twenties, early thirties crowd., mix of locals and tourists. The upstairs is fun and they give you chips to munch on if you need a snack. The patio is cool too!
Hooray for American-style pubs (though more English style) with free wi-fi (unusual) and a bunch of friendly folks. A couple of beers on tap, I had a very large Kronenbourg that only set me back €6. (eek!)
Seating outdoors and in. Only a block from Notre Dame, if you're thirsty, this is a good break. Loud music at times, lots of people at times, it's a decent place for a brew and some American accents.
Free wifi and a big patio.
This is a bit of a rant about the quality of beers in Paris rather than a proper review but seriously what's with the Fosters and Carlsberg? Why does Paris loves these beers of failure so much?
Long Hop has some other options (in addition to the standard Paris fare of Kronenbourg and Leffe) like...Leffe blonde. I also saw some tins of Bud in their fridge.
This is a great patio. It's sunken in from the street and they have lots of chairs and umbrellas. They don't really care if you move things around and it's in a great location. And wifi. That was very convenient for me.
Good bathrooms, medium prices on pints but a great patio.
Let me take you on a trip down memory lanethe year was 1999.
So this review may not be that helpful due to time period during which I frequented this place, but I feel like I need to give a shout out to what was one of my favorite bars when I was studying in ParisThe Long Hop.
Known cordially as The Hop, it's an English pub, located in the heart of the Latin Quarter. It catered to English-speaking expats, foreign students, and it was made up a crowd that loved to throw down pints like it was nobody's business.
Snippets of soccer (football) matches, dancing, chugging contests, the Super Bowl, and complete insanity are all that remain of my cloudy, drunken memories of this place.
Michael was an amazing manager, who would push his patrons out of the way to come greet me every time I came with my friends, and he'd buy me my first pint. You don't find that kind of warmth anywhere.
Great English and Irish beers on tap, a huge interior with an upstairs, great DJs, and fun times had by all are what the Hop has to offer.
I used to go here back in the day when I lived in Paris as a kid. The venue is a decent size with some good happy hr offers; unfortunately most of the time it is dead!
I recommend it for a NYE venue - for some bizarre reason, it magically turns into a super-venue; with loads of fit people having a great time.
In summertime the terrace can be nice. Be prepared to part with EUR7ish for a pint (yes i know! but thats standard paris pub prices) :P
Everyone who works there is really polite and friendly. I love the atmosphere! Get the house white wine! It's only 4 euro and tastes amazing!
Allmost everyone there speaks English.
At night, this bar is pretty cool for an American to come to. Their playlist of music is filled with songs familiar to Californians. They do range quite a bit from what era they come from but they mostly are older songs. I've notice that the songs repeat night after night, so i think it's the same playlist on the ipod or something.
This is kinda weird, but you can also play beer pong and I've heard they have a beer bong here upon request.
Their drinks are descent. They have a student night special of 5€ for cocktails. They're a bit weak, but whatever...
One of the great things here though is that the number of creepers is down. My lady friends have gotten the least amount of harassment here compared to other bars and clubs. This is surprising especially when you see a bunch of pretty girls dancing and singing to the music in the bar. But hey.. maybe all the Americans watch out for each other =)
If you're homesick for the states... hopefully this bar will help a bit.
Relaxed crowd, fun staff, great prices. Excellent people watching block location with tons of covered outside seating.
