Nightlife centers on the neighborhood known as Petit Bayonne, the town’s historic core. Rue des Tonneliers, rue Pannecau, and rue des Cordeliers are the liveliest areas after dark. Le Caveau des Augustin, 7 rue des Augustins, is a good choice for live music and jam sessions, and its vaulted stone cellars allow excellent acoustics (; tel. 05-59-25-69-76). Good choice of tapas and wine is also on offer. For an equally interesting taste of local color, with slightly more traditional music, head to Le Cabaret La Luna Negra, also on rue des Augustins (; tel. 05-59-25-78-05). The 6€-to-10€ cover charge includes cabaret, jazz, or blues performances and popular French songs.
