Drinking & Nightlife

Clermont-Ferrand has the Auvergne's liveliest and biggest choice of nightlife. In summer, tables spill out of bars onto the main square, year-round there's merry-making in brasseries and bars tucked into pedestrianised old-town lanes, plus Clermont has a couple of major clubbing and live-music venues, 101 Club and La Cooperative de Mai.
