We may be far from the Basque Country, in south west of France, but even in Paris it is possible to play pelota (a racket sport popular in Spain and France) at the sports complex Chiquito de Cambo near Porte de Saint-Cloud. What’s more, you can enjoy the cultural and culinary diversity that Paris has to offer by heading to Au Trinquet also located there, a bar-and-barbecue restaurant with all the regional flair.
During your travels, immerse yourself in a truly different ambiance with a strong speciality in Basque regional cuisine, sports, and culture. With a selection from charcuterie plates to “Ardi Gagna” (a typical Basque cheese) to squid-ink pasta, you will find exceptional food with a new feel. What’s more, the terrace is open all summer for you to enjoy.
Thursday night afterworks
Above all, we recommend that you come to Au Trinquet on Thursday nights for an afterwork party. In effect, Parisians celebrate the near-end of the work week while having a last hurrah in anticipation for the weekend every Thursday. Starting from 7pm to 2am, the great food, buzzing crowd, and open terrace makes Au Trinquet one of the most famous afterworks in Paris.
Ideal location to come with friends, family, or with fellow rugbymen.
