O’Paris Pub, 15 rue Colbert, off place d’Armes (www.puboparis.com; tel. 01-39-50-36-12), is an Irish pub where you can order the best brews in town. In the summer, the party spills onto the street, which boasts palace views.

And the Basque country comes to Versailles at L’Équilibre, 8 rue des Deux Portes (https://equilibre-bar.com; tel. 01-39-49-42-68), a bar close to the market where a bottle of wine (there are 30 to choose between) and a good companion should get you through an evening, enhanced by tapas such as delicious Spanish hams and local cheeses.
