I am in Caen for two nights with my two female friends and wonder what's the local pub, bar and club scene like. Does anyone have any good recommendations? My friends love good, old fashioned English pubs and I love global - especially Latin American. What is the dress code in most places like? Are jeans ok?
O`Donnells is the only Irish pub I know in Caen. There are a lot of places in the area of Bassin-St.-Pierre. Jeans are okay if they are nice ones, especially in a pub.
As you face the Castle, below it on the right hand side is an area called Le Vaugueux, the valley of the beggars. There are many cafes, restaurants and bars, and still has a Medieval feel. Considering that Caen was pretty much destroyed during WW2, it is a nice enclave to visit. Over 30 years ago apparently the place was pretty dingy and "cut-throat". Edity Piaf grew up in a local brothel operating by her grandmother. The following site provides some background, but it is in French. tendanceouest.com/actualite-...
Thank you both. Luckily Google can translate almost anything these days. :)
