There's not much in the way of nightlife in Blois, but you could saunter down to Le Velvet Jazz Lounge, 15 bis rue Haute (tel. 02-54-78-36-32), off rue Denis Papin. This is part of a 13th-century abbey but is now a venue for weekly jazz concerts. Otherwise, this is a classy joint for a drink. From Tuesday to Sunday it becomes a salon de thé from 3 to 7pm, becoming a bar after that (usually open until 2am).
