Champagne - Troyes Guide
The most concentrated area for nightlife can be found amidst the cafés and taverns of rue Champeaux and rue Mole off Place Alexandre Israël.
Bar Montabert has a regular pub crowd and is one of the popular bars along this lively street.
24 rue Paillot de Montabert, just off rue Champeaux. (+33 (0)3 25 73 58 04).
Le Café du Musée has a good upstairs restaurant and a cool contemporary bar downstairs with a wide range of beers. Open Monday to Saturday until 3am, closed Monday evenings & Sundays.
59 rue de la Cité, near the cathedral.
Le Tricasse, at 2 rue Charbonnet, is a popular bar, with the occasional live band, and just off this street, along the narrow rue Paillot-de-Montabert, you'll find a few more bars, including the tiny and consistently packed-out Bar des Bougnets des Pouilles.
The hottest club venue in Troyes changes constantly, but Atlantide on 19 rue Claude Huez, is a fairly good bet (+33 (0)3 25 73 85 76). It's worth checking out the posters advertising Troyes clubs to get an idea of upcoming events, or pop into the tourist office for a list of clubs and discos.
