French phrase of the day: un pilier de comptoir

Def: a bar regular

The literal translation is “a pillar of the bar”. Sort of like a barfly, but this term is more specifically someone who is always at the same bar, same place, same drink. I guess like Norm.

  1. Interesting. In my pre- Provence life I was definitely un pilier de comptoir. Damn I miss that bar.
