Night-time activities light up the town: events in theatres, bars, restaurants and night-spots.
Theatre or opera, cinema, concerts, dance shows or circus, night-time exhibitions, festivals and all sorts of events in and around Nantes sowing the seeds for an exciting night out.
Even at well into the night the lights don’t dim, as Nantes is a port-town … so it’s a place for meeting and sharing. Bars are sprinkled all over town and those open later are grouped in “strategic” places.
The town center
Night owls centre on the pedestrian only streets of the old town or head for the ‘rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau’ from the nearby quays. The “lieu unique” needs no introduction on its party atmosphere. Out of the centre the “Hangar à Bananes” on the Isle of Nantes has made a name for its nightlife too as well as clubs dotted here and there around the town.
If you’re feeling peckish at dawn, head for the Talensac market and the early morning bistrots for coffee and croissants.
