Lyon Nightlife

The best part of being a university town

Like any good university city, Lyon can boast some pretty fun, youth-fueled nightlife - a great party any time of year and any night of the week - drawing from a population not just of French students but many from across Europe, as one of the big Erasmus study programme destinations. There are three main areas: the Croix Rousse, Old City, and Place des Terreaux and surrounding streets. It's common to find spots with live music (though you may have to try several before finding one to get into, because they are quite often packed), and discos are also thick on the ground, specialising in electronica and open till well into the wee hours.
