Bordeaux Nightlife

Chilled

Madame Pang
 With an offering that boasts cocktails and dim sum, places fill up fast at this Asian themed bar combines tradition with modernity for both the menu and décor.  Tables stacked with bamboo steamers full of prawn and pork stuffed dumplings are a common sight as it is impossible not to order a few to share. The drinks menu is also influenced by Cantonese culture and features Chinese beer and wine, alongside classics such as the Thaï Punch. 

Address: 16, rue de la Devise | Telephone: 05 64 28 58 36 |

Les Cadets
 This cheeky little bar-bistrot on the quays of hip Saint Michel has a laid-back vibe which appeals to locals and tourists alike. Boasting its own boulodrome, drinkers queue up to play in the evening while sampling cocktails and snacking on artisanal charcuterie.

Address: 12 quai de la Monnaie | Telephone: 09 51 45 78 01 |

Echo
 Many bars populate the streets of the city's old town but Echo stands out for its interesting selection of wines, 90% of which are from organic producers, many from aboard and all chosen by Bruno, a former Bordeaux winemaker. Also on another level is the quality and variety of small dishes, including hummus with coriander, creamy gorgonzola or the pulled lamb burger.  The space is small but spills onto the terrace in warmer weather.   

Address: 18 Rue de la Cour des Aides | Telephone: 05 56 81 69 95 |

Donostia
 The long wooden counter which dominates this tapas bar is the perfect place to stand while enjoying some pintxos with a glass of Spanish beer or wine. Calamari stuffed with chorizo and mini-burgers with sheep's cheese make it a popular spot for an aperitif, with many customers persuaded to stay longer by the friendly atmosphere.  

Address: 14 Rue des Faussets | Telephone: 06 61 46 30 43 |

Clubbing

Les Mauvaises Garcons
 Some of the best DJs in town can be found on weekends in one of Bordeaux's oldest buildings. Music vibrates off the original wooden rafters and exposed stone walls while the crowd sips on some of the 10 cocktails concocted by the in-house Mixologist. Fusion food is on offer for those with late night cravings.

Address: 23, rue Neuve | Telephone: 05 56 44 65 83 |

Le Point Rouge
 The 500m² of this cavernous bar specialises in vintage champagne, but also has an impressive range of wine by the glass. The cocktail list with over 100 references includes a summary of the history of the tipple dating from the 1800s onwards, and features an anecdote for each entry. Depending on the mood, there are cosy, leather sofa corners, red banquettes or bar stools from which to watch the mixologists in action. 

Address: 1 quai de Paludate | Telephone: +33(0)556949440 |

L'Austra
 Branded as an urban beach, water plays a major part in creating the ambiance of this late bar and restaurant, whether it be the river view or the swimming pool on the dance floor. The Australian coastal theme also extends to the sandy coloured floor and the striped beach hut doors. Beer features prominently on the drinks menus with cocktails also available. DJs play from 9pm, beneath spinning disco balls.

Address: Hangar 19, Quai de Bacalan | Telephone: 05 57 00 10 15 |

No Name
 Housed in a former warehouse to the north of the city, this bar/restaurant also boasts an indoor boules pitch and some large olive trees. DJ music booms out from the mezzanine level, perfect for those in the mood to party. 

Address: Quai Armand Lalande, Hangar G2 | Telephone: 05 56 39 77 35 |
