This gem of a bar in Les Cordeliers is located on a busy street. Humming with a friendly vibe, the Brooklyn Bar impresses patrons with their fantastic cocktails and affable bartenders. A sidewalk patio in the summers is ideal for boozy afternoons and casual drinks before dinner. Happy hours are hosted from 5:30p to 9:30p every night, and tapas is served with the discounted drinks. A handful of wines and champagnes are available as well.
A small den perched on the slopes of Croix-Rousse, Bec de Jazz serves as a vibrant jazz club featuring exciting live music specials and impromptu gigs. Offering a breather from the city's mainstream dance and electronic music clubs, Bec de Jazz features an interesting line-up of jazz artists crooning to a cheering audience as these artists belt out classics by Ray Charles and other noted jazz musicians. A separate area for smokers means this jazz club is a hot spot for those wishing to light up a cigarette as they enjoy those soothing jazz numbers.
The newer incarnation of what used to be Le Bistroy, a legendary Croix-Rousse bar, Les Valseuses is a little quieter despite its regular concert nights. Indeed, Les Valseuses hosts mainly acoustic, folk and chanson acts, surely due to the numerous noise complaints that drove Le Bistroy to its closing. It however remains a good address for anyone wishing to discover upcoming local and national artists while enjoying a few drinks in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The place serves beer, wine, liquors as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Les Valseuses is named after a famous french comedy movie and it surely shows in its choice of music and the vibe of the place!
