Le Violon Dingue is not recommended for those with a delicate constitution. Numerous plasma screens show American sports championships, the place smells of beer and the clientele is mainly eighteen year olds from the local lycée gyrating madly on the dancefloor at the back, accompanied by a few tipsy Anglo students and the occasional lost tourist. Stick to pints of beer rather than the lethal cocktails (happy hour is 8pm-10pm) and if you’re over 25 to skip it altogether. Still, if you want to relive your Erasmus year or if it’s after 2am you could stop by, as it’s open until 4 or 5am and is always crowded. Entry is free for girls and the bouncer is very selective about the boys, who must pay €10 for the dancefloor, which is always heaving even at 3am.
