This indoor petanque bar specialises in the simple game of boules – for the unfamiliar, a bowling-like game using metal balls – which is easily picked up but difficult to master. That is, perfect date material. Have a beer (or an absinthe), indulge in some excellent French cheese and engage in a little friendly competition. It’s all very French – which is romantic, of course.
