After all the sightseeing, eating, and drinking you've done in Paris, we think it's high time you do something active in the city. Enough of "taking it in", right? We have one word for you - pétanque, the loose love-child of horseshoes and bowling. There's no better way to make friends with other Trabblrs and locals while experiencing a national pastime than with a game of pétanque at amazing Bar Ourcq on the banks of the Canal Saint-Martin. Here you can borrow a set of boules from the kind bartender and start your own little game near the canal.
What's more, you can drink and eat for cheap. Not only are there free appetizers but drinks can cost as low as €2.50! The bar is undoubtedly busier during the summer but it's also nice in the winter when you can play board games inside.

Meeting point: Outside the bar. The closest Metro stop is Laumière on the M5 Line.
Leaders, Bar Ourcq is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. It's open the rest of the week from 3pm onwards.
