The space can be rented for professional or private events.

The BB Antilles floats a party with Caribbean flavor every day, with a restaurant, club, and piano bar featuring live music all aboard the boat. The restaurant offers a regular menu or prix-fixe choices, including dishes like coconut milk pork and rum-soaked fruit salad.

Auto Passion café is a unique place for lovers of vehicular sports. Plenty of car lovers gather here to have a drink or a meal, staring at one of the two giant screens or at one of the eight TV screens all displaying nonstop automobile sporting events. The setting is composed of car engines and collectible objects, red seats – Ferrari red, of course – on which you will enjoy one the numerous theme nights that they organize, in small lounges laid out around the bar. The lounges’ names are, for example, Imola, Monza, Silver Stone and Magny-Cours. They have thought about every detail, such as security belts on toilet seats! Maybe one thing is missing to be perfect: the smell of oil and gasoline.. Or maybe not!

You can also point or write down your order. The steak fries are worth a try here.

The chef imports all produce fresh from Lozère where he originates, and it is full of rustic flavors. Who could be happier than a Frenchman with good bread and good wine on his table?
