Some­thing to drink

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Gateway To The Vineyards -

The three squares of Par­lement, St. Pierre and Camille Jul­lian form a joy­ous tri­an­gle, in which nu­mer­ous bistros and cafés of­fer friendly ter­races where you can en­joy a drink. La Comtesse bar with its kitsch, cu­rios­ity shop dé­cor, is renowned for its mo­ji­tos. In the same street, the Alchimiste serves cock­tails in an Amer­i­can pro­hi­bi­tion­style at­mos­phere. In Place Camille-jul­lian (known to Bordeaux in­hab­i­tants as «Caju»), the Utopia, a for­mer church con­verted into an arts cinema has its own restau­rant and bar with out­door seat­ing. Or there is Chez Fred in the Place du Palais, the best spot for a drink with a view of the Porte Cail­hau. Go­ing up to­wards Place Fer­nand La­far­gue, The Apollo Bar at­tracts an eclec­tic crowd, and then on the Rue des Boucheries, there is the Que­bec-style pub Au Nou­veau Monde where you can drink or­ganic beers brewed on site. If you fancy a roof top bar, then the Mama Shel­ter and the In­tercon­ti­nen­tal of­fer great views of the city dur­ing the sum­mer sea­son. Those in the know will head for the ter­race at the Si­man, to en­joy the mag­nif­i­cent spec­ta­cle of the sun set­ting on the city’s UNESCO world her­itage façades.
