Catch all the Roland-Garros Grand Slam action on court (and off) at one of these lively sports venues.
Not yet scored a seat at the French tennis tournament of the year? Fret not as there’s still time to nab yourself one of a handful of tickets to the iconic red-clay courts. Better yet, the Elegance Panorama package places you amid the action with a private box in the Philippe-Chatrier court, complete with access to the private bar and the exclusive, viewtastic Salon Mousquetaires.
Alternatively, there’s a plethora of bars broadcasting the tournament and although you may have to elbow your way to see the screens, they guarantee festive atmos aplenty. A stalwart on the city’s sports bar scene, The Long Hop is showing live action alongside a menu of hearty French staples like steak tartare and pommes frites, matched with a simple, well-chosen wine menu.
Quintessential British pub The Bombardier might not be the Frenchest of locations, but its cosy interior and welcoming vibe backdrop an award-winning beer menu and acclaimed Sunday roasts. All Roland-Garros matches will be screened live during the tournament.
Over near Odéon, Canadian bar The Moose is a popular choice with sportos thanks to its round-the-clock screenings of all major events – Roland-Garros included. Tuck into hearty plates of poutine and gourmet burgers and sip on a range of craft ales and North American wines while watching all the action. Game, set, match!
