Bordeaux is a quiet city but at night the discos and bars open. If you want a relaxing time there, or to drink a good wine, it would seem that Bordeaux really does comes alive at night.
The Grand Théâtre, located at the Place de la Comedie offers musical concerts and theatrical productions, so check the schedules in the local newspaper Sud-Quest,
or in the Tourism Office.|
