La Quille is a public pool hall and miniature bowling alley where Oberkampf meets rue Saint Maur.
Upstairs there are six tables that you can rent for €15 per hour, by leaving a €20 deposit at the bar.
Whilst this can get expensive if you want to waste away an entire Sunday afternoon, a jug (pichet) of Kronenbourg is only €13, so at least the beer is ridiculously cheap.
The space is big enough to fit a crowd around the pool table and they don’t seem to mind large groups of rowdy English speaking expats. It is distinctly – and charmingly – devoid of any hipster industrialisation, music or clientele.
Impress fellow hipsters: tables drop down to €13 per hour during the week and there is also a space to play darts in the downstairs bar.
