We think there is a sound and light show in summer on the Esplanade, but we were out of season, so we enjoyed coming out of our hotel next to the Opera for an after dark dinner at a spot almost under the bridge. We were slightly surprised by Metz after dark. Like all big cities there are buildings to light but the open spaces and trees at the river makes for vistas and angles and the Cathedral's Rayonant Gothic is perfect.

Like most towns and cities across europe we find the 'Irish Bar', which normally means a franchise bar with a few irish type decors scattered about and some U2 music being played.
This Bar was one of those franchises, however the bar was thumping, busy and loud with the local population singing and kinda dancng in the restricted spaces inside. The Irish brew served here was Beamish which cost a stunning 5.20 Euros...
Happy hour is on a monday and tuesday from 6pm till 8.30pm...
Dress Code: You must be joking!
