And finally, your top three Lyon must see/dos...
I love this city a lot so I give you a few more than three:
Food: Go to Les Halles Paul Bocuse, a covered market where you will find all sorts of fine food, from snails to foie gras, but also lots of specialities from Lyon. My favourite place there is called Chez Merle. They specialise in
seafood and serve the best oysters in town.
Drink: Head to Le Voxx. I don 't know if it's a good tip as the servers aren't always polite and the food isn't great, but I spent all my teenage years there so it's a bad habit that keeps my friends and I going back. If you want to enjoy a bottle of rose or a Ricard on a sunny Saturday afternoon we might meet each other.
Club: L'ambassade is a very small club that used to be an old gangster spot back in the 80s. The crowd can be a bit strange sometimes but the music is always great. Manoo the resident dj has made some tracks with Masters at Work in the past which probably explains why!
Shop: Go visit my good friends at Heritage Store. They have great selection of menswear and in the basement of their store there is also a record store called Emile Records! For womenswear Solis is worth a visit.
Stay: If your budget allows stay at La Cours de Loges. It's an amazing place hidden in the historic district of Lyon. A cheaper alternative is The College Hotel nearby.
