I was over in Paris at the weekend. It was noticeable that most bars were advertising Happy Hours, usually lasting five or six hours. Now the happy hour concept is a dying breed in Britain as the various health lobbies have put pressure on pub groups and breweries.
So its as well that they aren't aware that Wells & Youngs own a pub in Paris called the Bombardier just round the corner from the Sorbonne. Not only does it have a Happy Hour (or six) but it proudly advertises that Happy Hour lasts all night for students with valid ID. They wouldn't get away with that in the U.K.
