Volcom Hot Spot // Bordeaux

According to many surveys, Bordeaux’s in the top 3 favorite cities of French people. At sixty miles from the ocean, the capital of Aquitaine has retained its theatrical, secret atmosphere; it’s pride and often-rebellious nature.  Cultivated as the city is, it’s not shy of outside influences and especially Southern ones. The Spanish trend of outside areas can now be seen clearly outside most cafés and restaurants on the oh-so-many windy roads of Bordeaux. The evenings become alive in tapas bars and continue into the hot night. Our Volcom Store Manager Mathieu and his team have prepared this 24h or more hour program to help you navigate through their city.

 

To start the day with a few activities, or just mellow cruising, there’s two choices available for you: the Darwin hangar or the skate park of Bordeaux.

The Darwin Hangar is a result of the ambitions to bring together: artists, musicians, painters, skateboarders, all in one place... Achieving a beautiful utopia, allowing urban actors to enjoy a magical place which combines unusual projects, unique spaces and warmth. The hangar is in all simplicity an eco-designed indoor skate park, dedicated to urban culture. Thanks to the patronage of the Endowment Fund, it has gradually been converted into a hangar, largely with the help of recycled materials.

The skate park of Bordeaux, on the Quai des Chartrons, is one of the largest open spaces of its kind in France. It’s a massive 2350 m2 and 110 meters long.

If you spent a lot of energy in the morning, you'll probably be really hungry at lunch. To satisfy your hunger, we advise you to go to Edmond. The burgers are homemade with a guaranteed quality (meat born, raised and slaughtered in France, soft bread prepared on site every morning, cheese from a Bordeaux refiner).

Similarly, West Coast offers homemade burgers and they even have a Food Truck (please go to the website to check the location).

Finally, in a vintage and industrial style, Catering Bagels offers in its two restaurants, an entire universe built around the Bagel and rock music.

In the afternoon, you can have a ride to “Les vivres de l’art”. A space dedicated to art, mainly street art or music. The large surface area of the site allows for fragmented areas so that the space can be divided between different practices and artists.

To start the evening, A cantina, a tapas bar / restaurant from Corsica will do nicely. The place comes from a concept created some years ago in Calvi in Corsica. Imported in the early summer of 2011 to Bordeaux, A Cantina will offer traditional and modern Corsican food, all in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

You’ll have two options: the tapas bar on the ground floor and/or the traditional restaurant upstairs.

If you want a more Street Food friendly atmosphere, go to the cozy little place called Fernand Lafargue in the heart of Bordeaux, there Santosha offers inventive and exotic cuisine described as "Asian Street Food", mostly made ​​from Asian recipes from various influences (Bali, Thailand, Indonesia, etc ...).

You can eat here or take away the very large portions. Even tea, coffee and lassis can be taken away. However, don’t arrive too late or you’ll most likely be greeted by a very long queue.

For background music, the Café Brun is the place that suits you. For several years, this traditional pub in Bordeaux has attracted a very eclectic clientele of regulars, students, revelers but also tourists and businessmen, all in a fun atmosphere. This pub bar conveys a cool but warm atmosphere thanks to its design created from objects and antique furniture.

Feeling funk and soul? Go to the Apollo. The name "Apollo" returns directly to the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY. James Brown, the sacred monster of funk, music and African American culture. Its style, values, spirit and soul are all passed onto the people at Apollo!

 

For the late hours, there’s several choices available for you to continue the night.

L’entrepôt is a new concert venue opened since early September with a nice program.

On a docked ferry, iBoat unfolds on three levels: a concert venue and electro clubbing; a restaurant with creative cuisine with two terrace bars; an event and exhibition space. The place can be seen as a cultural center for electronic music and digital arts thanks to its on-point program.

If you like rock, Hereticclub is neither a trade nor a club, members of the crew who work in bars, entrances, programming, and promotion are part of the 8 million of French who are below the poverty line go here. The space was created to be a little freer, to let people live their independent scenes and alternative networks more or less all with the same motto: passion, independence & love for music.

 

Finally, if you start feeling hungry around sunrise, go to the “marché des Capucins”, this is the perfect spot for a good meal after all the partying.

 

Then last but not least – Don’t miss the Volcom Store of Bordeaux. Located on Rue St Catherine, on one of the main streets of Bordeaux. Take a ride through the Store and update your wardrobe with some of the season’s new arrivals.
