Volcom Hot Spot // Lyon

Beyond its international reputation as the capital of gastronomy, Lyon is one of the most attractive cities in Europe for its quality of life and economic dynamism. The geographical position of Lyon makes it a particularly popular town for French people: a few hours from the sea, mountains or even Paris, the capital. Some even say that it is a small Paris without the inconvenience, and they are probably right. This week, Olivier our Volcom Store Manager and his team share their best spots of the city. We’re sure you are going to love these places!

 

Where to have a drink?

The Bicycletterie welcomes you for a warm coffee and to pause, repair your bike or just to enjoy Wi-Fi, with a selection of original, quality product.

On the menu, delicious handcrafted fruit juices, coconut juice and some of the best iced coffee and tea in the world. They also offer breakfast and snack options.

Voxx is a place in three steps. At 8 am, take your first coffee, the one that you need to wake up. Cars rushing past the terrace are also there to pull you out of your sleep. At 12 am, lunch break, where you can swallow one delicious oriental burger while your friend will be struggling to finish her gigantic salad. At 6 pm, after work, you can meet more friends and spend time listening to the varied music.

 

In French, the name "Poule au pot" might be that of a neighborhood bar. Location: a quite festive one. Cocktails: trendy as hell. Prices: more reasonable than you’d think. Might perhaps sound quite spread out, but with its on-point music program, which isn’t too elitist, everything is mixed perfectly.

As soon as the weather is good, La Barge is one of the nicest places to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine on a barge, as the name suggests, in the middle of the palm trees. All wrapped in a very good musical atmosphere.

Where to eat something?

On Croix-Rousse square, at daybreak, there’s a unusual silence in the area. Then gradually hundred traders pile egg baskets and heaps of fresh vegetables. Stretching almost a kilometer, the huge market wakes up and soon, the place is crowded and the ruckus is noteworthy as people turn up to spend a perfect Saturday morning, devoted to organic products.

 

The "Bistrot de St Jean" is typically a "Bouchon Lyonnais " in one of the oldest streets in the city. They serve the most prestigious Lyon cuisine around.

More meat!!!!! This is the motto of Butcher.

A selection of meats that regularly changes with the chef, paired with a bourbon or a classic cocktail from the Butcher's Team which is always motivated and ready to welcome you from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner.

Are you hungry ... or just downright greedy? In all cases, the "Bistrot des Voraces" in the area of Croix-Rousse will please you! With its beautiful terrace and stonewalls, be ready to enjoy your meal in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The food is 100% authentic, made ​​from fresh and seasonal ingredients.

 

Where to party?

Switching between concert stage, club, and café/ bar with terrace, La Marquise day and night is characterized by diversity. It’s a place with good humour where you easily can meet new people any time of the clock.

Then to one of the latest additions to the Lyonnaise night, everyone was talking about this rooftop project in Lyon, and they didn’t have to be disappointed: Le Sucre. Less than two years after opening, the place has practically traveled the world posing as one of the coolest places of the moment. Appearing first as a place of culture, it is alive with events, whether music, graphics or even private.

What is the Maison Mère? It is primarily an artistic and festive room of its own kind in the very center of Lyon. It is also a cozy bar and a melting pot open to all the public. It’s the best place to have a drink with friends or lovers, see a live concert in the evening, or sweat until the morning dancing away to great music.

Established in 2003, Les Nuits Sonores is a festival dedicated to electronic music culture. It takes place every year around May. It now includes more than 100,000 spectators each year and invites 250 artists from around the world and takes place in nearly 50 locations in the city. The festival is now known in Europe for its size (an urban event, very invested in public spaces and heritage sites, including brownfields) and for the quality and the intransigence of its programming.

Where to experience something different?

If you’re an art lover, take a turn at the Contemporary Art Museum and the Museum of Les beaux arts. One feature of the city of Lyon that doesn’t cost and is worth experiencing is all the alleyways. If you have time just go and get lost and find yourself in places you’d never thought of going. There are about 500 alleyways in the city so good luck. They are mainly located in the neighborhoods of Vieux Lyon and Croix-Rousse.

Where to be True To This?

Except the City Hall, the Skatepark of Lyon Gerland offers a covered and secure area of 1500m ² with two unique amenities offered, a big ramp (height 3.80m + 4.20m extension) and a mini dual spine (18m length x width 9m).

The Skatepark of Sergent Blandan covers 1230m ² and the paths in the park are raised, bend and turn, to fit perfectly into the natural environment allowing all from young kids (from 8 years), to the more experienced ones, to explore a number of original obstacles. Not to forget the bowls at Berges du Rhone…

One run with Marcus Kleveland at the Launch!
Our camera wizard Seth Huot followed Volcom snowboarder Marcus Kleveland for a top-to bottom run during the Launch at Big Bear earlier this spring. Marcus sends it, delivers and truly makes snowboarding look like a video game. Enjoy

Austrian Rider Roli Tschoder stretches his back leg over the Kaunertal access road
  Here’s a short edit showing how amazing the conditions are up at Kaunertal Glacier right now, only 40 minutes from the Volcom Snow Team house. There’s hardly anyone around, aside from the like-minded, the park is in mint condition, you can ride from 3200 to 2000m and there’s even pow on offer. Way better conditions now  than in December/January.  Roli from Ischgl certainly has his priorities straight.. But unless you can ride like Roli, the we recommend you spare the stretching until you’re safely back on the ground again.  Now run to the hills… Pic and edit by Flo Achenrainer

Retrospection video by Olivier Gittler and Arthur Longo
If you plan on only seeing ONE snowboard video this year, then here you have it. Volcom lifer Olivier Gittler and his trusty collaborator Arthur Longo just put together a full length edit of all their Instagram short clips from the winter past.. In it you’ll see their unique take on snowboarding. And as you’ll watch you’ll slowly realise that “higher and further”’ isn’t always the goal. That it is just as much about the right turn at the right place at the right time. Or a backflip? And another backflip.. Backflips are never wrong. At times it might even look like the boys are bored with their day job (?!?) as they seem to be surfing more than snowboarding. But why not? Therein lies the beauty of this edit.. Get out off the park and look at what’s hidden behind it.  Or even IN it, as you follow our friends and their friends, finding park lines yet to be thought of.. Or making their own park outside of the park.. This is truly beautiful Olivier .. Please do even more of what you’re already doing.  Filmed on location in Les Des Alpes, Kitzsteinhorn, Chamonix, US Open, Arlberg and more Music: Leopard Ale IG: @leopard_ale

Volcom Stone Presents BARNEY - Watch Now!
Movie Description: A candid film collage celebrating the incomparable Shawn “Barney” Barron. Not only was Barney the innovative surfer whose acrobatic agility perfectly matched the superhero wetsuits he often wore, he was also an artist, comedian, son, brother, and true friend who lived and breathed laughs and creativity into everything he did. Despite the challenges of his bipolar disorder, he maintained an infectiously positive attitude, irrefutable love for life, and endless generosity that brightened the lives of all who knew him. His spirit reminds us that now is all we have… It reminds us to live now to the fullest. Shawn "Barney" Barron (photo: Tom Carey) Barney was known for his superhero-style wetsuits.

VOLCOM BANKED SLALOM KITZSTEINHORN 2016
The 3rd edition of the Volcom banked slalom at Kitzsteinhorn was another one to put in the books! It all started with a good snow dump before the weekend that made shapers shovel extra hard, but also stoked out some early arrival competitors with some powder turns. It continued with two consecutive days of sunshine, allowing everyone to shred the snowparks in between race runs with the best conditions you could get. This year’s course was again just over 1min, so legs, hearts and breath were reasonably tested, but depending on your finish time your ego could be severely tested, especially if you’re a seasoned guide from Chamonix or a quad-corking park ripper and you get beaten by a 17 years old girl, which can happen in this kind of event. Some legends and pros were on the start list along with locals, speed freaks from all over Europe and snowboarding enthusiasts which made for a great mix of people and a great weekend! Check out the photos and full results below! The day ended with the Volcom Castle Rock Out, a massive party at the medieval castle of Kaprun, starting with The Black Tambourines, playing their party fueled garage rock from London, and continuing with headliners Mozes And The Firstborn from Netherlands, partying with everyone while playing and finishing with DJ Stephan Rathgeb who kept the spirits high and Austrian refreshments flowing all nite. Finish line photo VernonDeck Million thanks to everyone who attended the events and even more thanks to the ones who helped make this happen: the resort of Kitzsteinhorn for all the support and its shapers, Extra shapers from Montafon, Bulgaria and other resorts that helped finish up the course, Rosmarie and her staff at Active Leitner’s hotel in Kaprun for being the best, Misha and the Burg crew, and all the Volcom staff.
