The 10 Best Bars In Lyon, France

Colette Lewis

The vibrant city of Lyon has a wonderful range of establishments to suit every time of day, yet arguably the best time to experience this beautiful city is at night, when the reflections of the artistically illuminated buildings play across the shimmering rivers, the Rhône and the Saône. The beauty of Lyon at night is matched by the extensive variety of bars situated across the city, from the historic Old Town, to the alternative district of Croix Rousse. Here’s a list of the best bars in town.
