Every Thursday night, the area’s bars and nightclubs are the perfect place to unwind and enjoy one of the many lively student parties.

In Mulhouse, the Shamrock bar and the Chevaliers Teutoniques bar are the hottest student hangouts. Later on, you can dance the night away at the City Hall club or one of the city’s other nightclubs.
In Strasbourg, students flock to the river and its nightclubs located on boats, like Le Rafiot, where a good time is guaranteed for all. The city also has a large number of bars. The Académie de la Bière serves a variety of good beers in a friendly atmosphere.
