Drinking and nightlife in Rennes

    Le Bar'Hic

    This inviting bar is a good place for getting a bit of local vibe. It fills up at night, when students and young hipsters stream in for the music events – usually live bands. Earlier in the evening it's much quieter. In warm weather, bag a seat on the terrace and watch the world go by.

    Oan's Pub

    Locals habitually turn up with instruments for impromptu Celtic jam sessions at this cosy cave-like, stone-walled pub with Brittany-brewed Coreff beer on tap. It can get pretty full, but there's a terrace out the front to help mop up the crowds in summer and add breathing space.
