Terraces are where it all happens

CLASSY TERRACES


  • For an authentic moment in the Figuerolles district, which is always very lively, go to the Dôme (2, avenue Georges Clemenceau). After finding exotic products in the surrounding boutiques, the large terrace of this brasserie is ideal for a coffee or beer.
  • The HQ of community life, La Cigale (7, boulevard des Arceaux) is the ideal place to drink a beer on a terrace, opposite the arches of the aqueduct, before taking a walk to Peyrou or the organic market on Saturday.
  • In the little Rue Rebuffy, there are numerous student bars, including the Rebuffy.

  • L’Art Café (13, rue Proudhon) is probably one of the most popular cafés in the Beaux-Arts district. The terrace spills over into the market on sunny days.
  • Not far from there, the bar des Super Vedettes (4, place des Beaux-Arts) invites you to sit at a table on the terrace at any time of day. It's nothing if not authentic!
  • There are many terraces in Port-Marianne too. These include Aux Grands Enfants (769, avenue Raymond Dugrand), located in the incredible architectural creation of Philippe Starck, Le Nuage.

Tea Time in the Ecusson


  • Le B’Cosse (12, boulevard Ledru-Rollin) is an unusual fusion between a Belgian chocolate shop and a Scottish tea room. You can enjoy tea, a homemade scone or even a Britishstyle breakfast for a very reasonable price.
  • For a cosy moment, the little tea room les Demoiselles de Montpellier (2, rue de la Cabonnerie) offers a lovely selection of teas, which you can enjoy with a gluten-free or allergen-free cake.
  • L’Heure bleue (1, rue de la Carbonnerie) is the place for high tea in a listed hotel, seated amidst antique furniture. 
  • Toast Tea (7, rue Vallat) not only proposes pastries to accompany tea, but also lunchtime menus at very affordable prices.
  • Just a few steps from the Law Faculty, Zandoli (36, rue de l’Université) is a tea room which combines fair-trade groceries, clothes, jewellery, cosmetics and arts and crafts from India, Brazil and Africa.
  • In Beaux-Arts district enjoy a tea break in an antique shop at Chic et Bohême (31, rue Proudhon). In a Bobo atmosphere, you can lunch or have a tea break among the antique and vintage items for sale, picked up by the owner.

Montpellier, the cocktail bar hotspot

MONTPELLIER, THE COCKTAIL BAR HOTSPOT

WHAT ABOUT WINTER?

As winter in Montpellier is mild, you can still enjoy a morning coffee outside.. On Place de la Comédie or Place Jean-Jaurès, there are many cafés with heated parasols. L’esprit Vin (3, Place Chabaneau), a stone’s throw from the Prefecture, has a heated terrace where you can enjoy a winter breakfast or evening drinks.

For a café or concert in the evening, The Black Cat (20, rue de Candolle) also has a heated terrace, near to the Faculty of Medicine.

In Castelnau-le-Lez, La Plage de Verchant (1, boulevard Philippe-Lamour) has a panoramic and heated terrace with a view of the vineyards for a smart and surprising
venue. Le Zèbre Bleu (Lieu-dit La Calade, Route de Palavas, Lattes), a not-to-miss music bar in Montpellier, proposes tapas and regional wines every Thursday from 7.30pm, in an open-air garden.

Finally the Nu-Bahia is a place that projects you directly on the beaches of Copacabana! With the brazilian tapas bar and theater, with its superb decoration, this bar is a magic place to drink an aperitif or to dance!
