This is a beautiful, yet traditional English bar with a busy
little brewery in the cellar and as with many such establishments in the UK it holds quiz
nights, music and entertainment nights, DJ and party nights and at the weekend it really
does get buzzing with a young and international party crowd.
The Frog and Rosbif is situated in the 2nd arrondissement, just around the corner from the
Rue Montorgueil, which is the oldest market street in Paris
and on weeknights they have a happy hour but this lasts for more than an hour! Plus
you can get bar snacks, hot sandwiches like a chicken and bacon bagel with fries, and
typical bar food like fish and chips to fill your stomach before you drink too much!
This place is the original one of the FrogPubs chain in France and was an instant success

up three other bars in Paris called the Frog and Princess, The Frog at Bercy Village and the Frog and British Library. They have
also now expanded further afield and opened two bars called the Frog and Rosbif in other regions in France, one being in Toulouse and the other in
With the Frog and Rosbif, the ex-pats have everything they could wish for including even
the odd English paper hanging around on the shelf by the bar and you would be mistaken in
thinking you are back in the UK with the interior in wood with numerous curiosities
around, but this bar has a great friendly atmosphere no matter what your nationality.
