The former market halls of Les Halles on rue Solférino is the centre of nightlife in the city, and it’s a real student hangout at weekends. The cafés around the Grand’ Place and place Rihour are usually buzzing with life. The Rue de Paris has lots of loud bars, while up near the cathedral, rue Basse and place Louise-de-Bettignies you can find the trendier spots. Art and music events are always worth checking up on, and there’s a particularly lively jazz scene. For an up to date check on what’s happening, pick up a copy of the free weekly listings magazine, Sortir, from the tourist office, or look in the local paper, La Voix du Nord.
