The best cafe is on Quai St Antoine - you get an amazing view of Vieux Lyon. On a Sunday morning you can enjoy oysters and wine after you've been to the market. The best night spot for me was the Ice Club (near Perrache station on the Rhone).Beware, alcohol is very expensive in bars, no student discounts!

Cafe de la Cloche off of Place Bellecour is quaint and friendly. Not too expensive either. Also in the summer, don't miss "Les Nuits de Fourviere". They are grand evening programs in the ancient roman amphitheatres overlooking the city.

Near the opear house there are several bars, but most of them are for a younger crowd. If you are looking for a place to have a conversation, there are much better bars in Vieux Lyon. As well, the bar the monacle is not bad. There are few jazz clubs as well that on ocassion have pretty decent jazz. Thre best that I was able to fond was the hot spot, but there could be others. Lyon is a town that you really have to look for places to have a good time.
