Pop rock bar owner with Laurie Magnier
Hello Mathieu, can you tell us a bit about your bar?

The Pop Rock Bar meets a real need among our clientele for a place to spend fun times with friends in a laid-back atmosphere where you can hear each other speak, while enjoying a drink, a plate of tapas, or a game of pool or darts. What makes us special? We offer over 23 draught beers (soon to be 25), which makes us the biggest beer bar in Pas-de-Calais… a nice little attraction in itself, as well as our cellar of infused rums and whisky, to be enjoyed responsibly with a plate of homemade nibbles! Our setting is unique as we have two terraces, one at the front and more importantly a second one at the back measuring over 150 m², which can be covered and heated for use all year round. Thanks to our giant screen, it can be turned into a small FANZONE for the 2018 World Cup! We also offer entertainment like concerts, poker tournaments, or free BBQs in the summer, with lots more for you to discover when you pay us a visit…

From over-forties’ bars to theme bars, through beer and rum bars, and lots of other options that tourists and residents love; there are 4 nightclubs to keep you entertained all night long! All these venues can be found in this guide or even online. That’s the appeal of Calais “By Night”, whatever your age, you’ll always find a place that’s right for you, your preferences, your moods… There really is a wide, diverse choice that attracts many different types of customer.

What are your plans for the future ?

Regarding plans for the bar, we’re in the middle of setting up a monthly comedy café-theatre, and family game afternoons on Sundays, based on parlour games old and new, ranging from board games to virtual reality games and competitions for gamers (FIFA, Call of Duty, poker tournaments…). There’s no shortage of plans!
