Belushi’s Bars, restaurants and nightclubs in Paris
Originating from London in the United Kingdom in the 1990s, Belushi’s has expanded into Europe and provides an international scene for a bar, restaurant and live sports action from big screen TVs, through to a nightclub, yet they also run the St Christopher backpacker hostels, which are now in two locations in Paris where budget accommodation, meals and drinks are served.
A bit of history..
It was in 1993 that the first Belushi’s Bar opened in London followed by a backpacker hostel two years later and over the years they expanded, with other venues opening up in different cities within the United Kingdom, and also in Europe in places such as Amsterdam, Berlin, Barcelona and Paris.
The first Belushi’s in Paris was opened right by the Canal de l’Ourcq and the historical Pont Levant de la Rue de Crimee in the 19th Arrondissement, which was followed five years later by the Belushi’s in Paris Gare du Nord that is located close to one of the busiest train stations in Paris in the 10th Arrondissement.
And always with the same theme of being an international place to hang out, have a drink, party, watch live sports, get a cheap bed for the night or enjoy things such as their signature burgers and other comfort food, Bulishi’s is a place for the younger generation that come from all over the world.
