Green Man

Wine Bar in Besançon

Formerly trading heavily on an Irish pub theme, these days the Green Man is a genteel, convivial place for coffee or an aperitif, decorated with musical instruments and folksy touches like mounted antlers and sometimes vibrating with live folk or rock. A cheerful scrum forms at the bar, where classy local wines are served by the glass.

Deeper within, locals compete for a small number of tables (plat du jour from €11).
