An auto-garage-cum-arts-space you've got to experience to believe.
Auto repair meets art.
In case you think Bordeaux is some Renaissance museum city stuck in the past, Le Garage Moderne should help dispel that notion. On Rue des Étrangers in the outlying district of Bacalan is in fact an auto repair garage by day, but also a cooperative where locals can learn to repair stuff themselves, or come to experience art exhibitions or performances amid the old restored buses. Have a cup of tea at one of the tables and watch actors practicing their lines across from grease monkeys doing their thing. A surreal but very cool way of enjoying a different outing in Bordeaux.
