The hot spots where students frequent are Pub d'etoile, and pretty much any bars found on la Grande Rue et Rue des Granges. BUT for real culture, try out la Cremerie (often live music in the centre ville) or le Marulaz (in the Battant quarter with lots of live music, hippies, reggae, jazz, culture man!) Also the best concerts are found in the "caves" in bars. Take time to stop and look at the flyers. Often they are inexpensive and unknown but the time of your life. Go to the xmas market in Granvelle and try the vin chaud. Also, try to walk up to the Fort de Bregille. it's a long walk, but if ou take bus #27 to Rue des Fontenottes, it's only about 1/2 hour. Go to the Citadelle, too.
