Not really an official district per se, there's a strip of barges along the east bank of Le Rhone that has become a popular spot for those hip Lyonnais seeking a little riverside live music/DJ combination. Just head over to Quai Victor Augagneur between Pont de la Guillotiere and Pont Lafayette and you'll have no trouble finding what you're looking for. Staples of the area include La Marquise, Le Sirius and La Passagere, but don't be afraid to do a little wandering since they're all in such close proximity to one another. Should you prefer staying land-bound, just grab a bottle (paper bag and plastic cups highly recommended) and share a few drinks with friends on the docks immediately outside the barges: same scenery, just a little less crowded.
Location:3rd Arrondissement, Lyon
