This place maintains a rather venerated status among Lausanne’s young people and student population. Both a café-restaurant and a bar-club, there’s a reason to hang out here any time of the day and night. As a restaurant, the food isn’t really anything special – the menu of burgers, salads, steak tartar and larger dishes is perfectly decent but doesn’t wow (although the chips are rather fine). But the lively, youthful ambiance of the restaurant is a definite draw and prices are reasonable, especially the daily changing set lunch menu. However Bleu Lézard’s trump card is in the basement. Its cellar bar and music venue hosts a regular programme of live music in a variety of genres by both local amateur bands and bigger names, making it a good place to immerse yourself in the local music scene. On weekends DJs draw crowds of students and young professionals looking to unwind after a long week.
