Terraces are the inevitable meeting places for Metz residents, and unmissable spots during the long summer evenings. The many bars and cafés in Metz city centre are ideal for going for a drink with friends.
Combining culture, discovery and entertainment in the oldest working opera-theatre in France? This is possible thanks to 100 annual shows in Metz Métropole Opera-Theatre: ballets, operas, theatre... and all in a magnificent setting. An added bonus: Place de la Comédie lit up at nightfall.
Feel like continuing the festivities after a nice meal? Wine bars, trendy cafés, open-air cafés, small bistros, Irish pubs... Metz city centre offers a multitude of places where you can meet up with friends, family, your partner, or enjoy solo. The bars and cafés in Place Saint-Louis and Place Saint-Jacques are very lively and welcome many residents and tourists. Place Jean-Paul II at the bottom of the covered market, the trendy bars on Rue Sainte-Marie, and the charm of Place Jeanne d’Arc are worth the detour. In summer, the restaurant terraces in Place de Chambre offer a stunning view of the illuminated cathedral.
For a cultural and artistic evening, the varied programme at the Cité Musicale, which brings together three performance venues and the Orchestre National de Lorraine (Lorraine National Orchestra), is sure to appeal to everyone. For a sporty evening, you can cheer for the Metz Handball dragons at the Arènes de Metz, or the FC Metz garnets at Saint-Symphorien stadium.
