Avignon’s beautiful people frequent Les Ambassadeurs, 27 rue Bancasse (www.clublesambassadeurs.fr; tel. 04-90-86-31-55), an upscale dance club. For wine Le Bar à Vin, part of the Carré du Palais (www.carredupalais.fr; tel. 04-65-00-01-01) viticulture school that opened in 2017, is by far the best bet in town. Purchase a 20€ carte de dégustation (a credit card pre-loaded with wine credit), then pour one of 50 wines by the glass from an electronic kiosk. The stunning city center establishment hosts 700 other vintages, plus a wine-centric Bistrot that serves a 3-course lunch for 29€. 83 Vernet, 83 rue Joseph Vernet (www.83vernet.com; tel. 04-90-85-99-04), switches from restaurant into dance club mode around 10pm, under the high-ceilinged hallways and stone courtyards of a former 1363 Benedictine convent.

Behind the Hôtel d’Europe, disco-bar L’Esclave, 12 rue du Limas (tel. 04-90-85-14-91), is a focal point of the city’s gay scene.
