The liveliest bars to start your evening in Bordeaux are usually located around the squares and pedestrian streets in the city centre. And when they shut their doors at 2 in the morning, there are still three main destinations where you can dance or go for a late-night nightcap: the Quai de Paludate is very popular with students; the Bassins à Flot, for late-night parties on the quays and in the nearby streets – if not on a boat; but you can also visit the night spots in the city centre, particularly along the Rue du Pas-Saint-Georges, around the Places des Quinconces and the Place de la Comédie.
