Looking for a place to play bowling whilst nibbling on delicious boards to share? Head to Gamelle, a bistro in Paris 12th arrondissement, set within walking distance from the Gare de Lyon, serving a great selection of tapas, and bowling tracks and foosball tables. Perfect if you are into sport and aperitif in a laid-back fashion!

Calling all fans of games and good food… Run to Gamelle, a bar in Paris 12th arrondissement, to discover a great list of tapas to share with friends or colleagues, as well as two small bowling tracks and foosball tables for crazy games between two dishes. (CAREFUL, this is not a bowling but a bar, the house providing only two small tracks to keep you busy throughout the night). And over the summer, make the most of the beautiful terrace to enjoy the sun whilst having a drink.

As for the menu, tapas, then, with boards of cold cuts (fouet, whole grilled chorizo) and mixed boards with charcuteries and cheese from Auvergne, as well as sardine and tuna rillettes, Iberian chorizo rillettes, duck “chichon”, Basque pâté or piquillos, or even black olive tapenade… It has it all for a great meal! You can also enjoy complete lunch or dinner with a mouthwatering menu serving tasty French cuisine, as well as dishes to share if there are many of you.

Or, still to be shared (but not if you are a foodie), hot dogs, beautiful burrata or mozzarella, chicken tenders, beef skewers with Cantal cheese, onion rings and fries! Perfect to build up your strength between two games of bowling or foosball.

For this is the very point of the place: the playful entertainments available at will. Players can try mini-bowling, boules or foosball on the four tables of the bar. As for drinks, you are proposed classic cocktails (mojito, spritz, Cuba libre, Moscow mule…), beers and even wine.

A great place to be rented by companies too, as they can rent places and enjoy all the activities provided on site. Please also note the house can serve huge buckets of cocktails (planteur, spritz…), for about thirty glasses, as well as beer giraffes. Gamelle also offers you to celebrate your birthday, providing a fridge to keep the cake nice and fresh.

In other words, a place to discover if you love playing and eating… But we highly recommend you book as it is often crowded. Reservations can be completed for at least 10 people too. Shall we meet there, then, friends?
