La Grande Poste

Arts Centre in Saint-Seurin & Fondaudège

Admire the art-deco domed ceiling and original octagonal windows of this former post office, telephone and telegraph centre where Bordelais once queued to send messages via electrical signals. Closed in the 1970s, it is now a groundbreaking 'espace improbable' (improbable space) where people come to breakfast, brunch and lunch; catch a show; listen to live music or DJ sets; or browse pop-up boutiques.

Artisan beer, cocktails and tapas platters or cheese and charcuterie also make it an appealing aperitif spot. Check its events schedule and reserve online.
