Caen Nightlife- Memorable Moments and Places

According to the good habit of gathering entertainment spots, Caen nightlife also simplifies the search of a tourist looking for fun. For bars and pubs, look for streets like Rue Ecuyère, Rue de Bas or Rue Saint Pierre or try at the harbor, on Quai Vendeuve. For eating, the best choice is a walk on Vaugueux Street, with its picturesque view of timbered houses, the right area to discover many restaurants. Depending on the moment of the year you are visiting, you may enjoy Festival Viva Voce in the Church of Saint Nicholas. If you are not exactly looking for opera and classic music, a visit in November is an opportunity to hear the electro beats of Nordik Impakt Festival. Guerinier Festival is the recommendation for cinema fans, an event presenting short movies. Speaking about this art, there are a lot of places to watch a movie in the city: Cinéma de la Gare, Cinéma Le Foyer, Cinéma Lux, Le Café des Images to mention just a few.

Caen Nightlife - Foreign Influences of Restaurants

It seems all exotic trends have a representative among Caen restaurants. Unique evenings are to be spent in places that do not necessarily sound like the most welcoming spots to go to, but the food is great and each of them has special elements to add to the delight of the customer. You may see kilims and other traditional objects at L’Afganistan or visit Kalinka for Russian atmosphere, where Mr. Leonid is in charge with music every night. Do not miss Le Kashmir or Persepolis. Palmyre serves mainly lamb and it is adorned with specific carpets and red table cloth, with golden hems. Spanish style is offered by La Bodega. In case you want some French food, Le Boeuf Ferre (the enclosed ox), Le Sans Gene (without embarrassment) or Arenga are recommendable. Just in case you are not willing to spend a whole night in one place, eat quickly at a creperie (a place where pancakes are made), such as La Gavotte.
