Unfortunately, the French have a reputation for hostility towards those who don't speak their language. Don't despair, though, so much of that is a stereotype. Still, you can check out the Bombardier - an English pub, where speaking English will almost certainly not make you stand out. You may get a slight light-hearted jossing for being a "Yank," though. It comes with the territory.

Stolly's is fun and the bartenders seem to always be friendly, no matter your nationality or your level of French. It's in the Marais neighborhood.

There is a great spot that I like to go to is Café Mabillon. Its more of a lounge, low key and open late. Its over by Saint-German.
