Le Ballon Rouge

Wine Bar in Cherbourg

Equal parts gallery, wine bar and taxidermy shop, this bohemian outpost near the waterfront embodies Cherbourg's most creative side. Stop in for a look at the changing artwork for sale, chat with the quirky owner, and enjoy an evening tipple amid half-deflated balloons, stuffed foxes and wildly eclectic tunes played on vinyl (from alt rock to old French marching songs).
