    tapas bar: hotel de mairie

    by catherineneill Written Feb 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    just near the hotel de marie, round the corner from the Au Bureau and the irish pub, is a tapas bar in the form of caves. it is a bit small, but if you go with the right crowd its a great night out. cloakroom facilities and free entry. two bars and lots of nooks and crannies.
    amusez-vous bien!!

    maison carree: dancing outside

    by catherineneill Written Dec 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    i lived here for 4 months, and even at the height of the tourist season the nightlife was pretty grim. we mainly went to the Maison Carree (there are signs everywhere) where there are a few good cafes, which are outside in the summer. our faveourite was cafe carre, but towards september everything seemed to shut down. night clubs are few. Lulu is a gay club, but has a straight following, we went a few times but i stopped going when i saw someone 'powdering his nose' in the toilets. we found a great club one night but never saw it open again down past the town hall - a spanish bar which we called 'les grottes' (the caves) - a series of cave rooms, great music. apart from that there was not much, but cafe carre closed at 3 sometimes so that was good enough for us.

    other bars include le bureau and cafe de paris.

    Dress Code: no one cares, probably because there is no one there

    Les Jeudis de Nîmes: Les Jeudis de Nîmes

    by pollon Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I was there on Thursday there was a night market with nice stalls of handicrafts, collectors, local products, music and animation on the streets.

    And why not after a nice dinner in a local nearby the waiter of which was sooo nice that I asked him to take a pic with me. Also the service was really friendly and a free winy aperitif was served while waiting for the ordered dishes.

    Sorry, I don't remember the name, this restaurant is just next to the amphitheatre but it's not the only one there...
