Nightlife in Pau has always centered on Le Triangle, an area in the town center that’s flanked by the rue Emile Garet, rue Lespy, and rue Castetnau. In recent years, a few new bars along boulevard des Pyrénées near place Clemenceau have augmented Pau’s nightlife.
Within the borders of Le Triangle, Le Garage Bar, at 47 rue Emile Garet (www.legaragebar.com; tel. 05-59-83-75-17), has been going strong since 1993. Set within an old auto repair shop, it retains many of its original industrial-looking fixtures, plus a collection of antique traffic lights, road signs, and mopeds hanging from chains in the ceiling. It’s open Monday to Friday 11¬am to 2am, Saturday 3pm to 2am and Sunday 3pm to 1am.
Near Parc Beaumont is L’Adresse, 20 rue des Orphelines (tel. 06-82-33-73-99), offers tapas, cocktails, and music that goes late. Student night is every Thursday. It’s open Tuesday to Friday 6pm to 2am and Saturday 6pm to 12am.
