On the corner of Place du Marché aux Fleurs, across from the entrance to the Préfecture, this bar has a very easy-going atmosphere. It's a popular city center meeting place for the predominantly gay clientèle. The interior is fairly smart with a leather button backed bench along one side and on the other an interesting display of ceramic tiles exploring the sea theme. A good place to read the available newspapers and pick up a flyer to get an idea of what to do later.
