Ajaccio Nightlife, France

Ajaccio is Napoléon's birthplace and the capital of Corsica island, full of cafes and palm-lined boulevards frequented by tourists mainly in summer when they come to enjoy themselves on the sandy beaches and feel free to choose among a dozen restaurants, bars and cafes that jostle for pavement space on the alleys and squares of Ajaccio's old town.

Ajaccio Nightlife – Frequented Restaurants and Bars

Ajaccio nightlife is nevertheless one of the most important aspects when talking about a city 142 miles from Cannes and.Nice.

One should mention here the old part of the city which became an interconnecting restaurant terrace amazingly distinguished thanks to the rows of candles that lit during the night in a romantic way to impress tourists who happen to be in, or fall in love at that moment.

A place calledLe Menestrel” once stood for "le rendez-vous des artistes", as it was the place where local musicians used to play café jazz or traditional mandolin and guitar tunes every evening after 7pm rendering an atmosphere preferred mostly by pensioners.

Those who want to overlook the promenade and to relax, chat or dream at a perfect night at the Ligurian seaside are strongly advised to stay for a couple of hours at the breezy location called “Safari”, a cocktail bar placed next to the casino on boulevard Lantivy.

Both the food containing Corsican specialties and the cozy atmosphere are essential when talking about a cheaper restaurant called “L'Amirauté” located right on the quayside of Port de Plaisance.

The Port is also the perfect location for “Le Floride” where local fresh seafood is served in an airy dining hall benefiting from an impressive view over the marina.

With a terrace opened straight on the sandy beach, “Ariadne” invites tourists to listen to live music, dance and cherish the world cuisine at its best in a place considered to be the oldest and the most cheerful of the city’s night locations. With such a recommendation no one would resist the temptation of spending a beautiful evening or night there.

Ajaccio Nightlife – Famous Cafes

Old-fashioned cafés and salons de thé offering a more quiet atmosphere can be found on place de Gaulle, but if you’d like to have a wonderful view of the bay do not hesitate to choose and have a sit at one of the many cocktail bars situated on boulevard Lantivy, that also houses a few cinemas and expensive clubs.

“Le Grand Café Napoleon” is the oldest café in town having a décor inspired by the Second Empire period, frequented by people being in their thirties.

The cafeLa Rade” offers tourists the possibility of eating, drinking and in the meantime watching the crowded Port de Plaisance.

Ajaccio Nightlife is one of those things that you should reflect on when choosing to spend merely a night or two here because the people working in the bars, cafes and restaurants opened till late at night decided a long time ago that their visitors would remain totally impressed by food, service, hospitality, friendship and party atmosphere once they enter their venue, so that they should come again and again. This is the essence of tourism very well planned.
