No wonder when you know that it is one of the youngest and most student cities in France. Chez Nestor made just for you a top 5 nightclub in Toulouse : first we give you three “normal” nightclubs and then our two favorite nightclubs special “afters” !

festive and friendly atmosphere reigns at every street corner. If you have come to study or work there, the reputation of the city has certainly not escaped you. That may be THE main reason you came. You never know!

If you have already been told about this cheerful atmosphere, by adding the few lines you have just read, you must certainly want to know the best addresses on the spot. Bars, cafes, concerts and… nightclubs!


The bestest nightclubs in Toulouse 


#1 The Bazar

Located just a stone’s throw from the Capitol, you’re bound to make a trip there! With two rooms, two atmospheres! A first one more techno, and a second one with old hits that we love to find. Clearly, inside, the club bears his name well, it’s the bazaar. Certainly due to its location, everyone eventually gets there. At least you’ll always find one of your buddies there!

The Bazar is open Monday to Sunday from 1am to 7am. Admission is free.

Address
11 place des Puits Cos
31000 Toulouse

#2 Downtown Factory

To start your evening at 7pm, this is the ideal place. Start with an aperitif, continue with dinner, then finish in beauty by dancing until the end of the night. There is three rooms so three different atmospheres. In an industrial setting, come with friends for a guaranteed evening without having to move from one place to another.

The Downtown Factory is open Wednesday from 7pm to 3am, then Thursday to Saturday from 7pm to 7am. Admission is free until 01:00, then 10€ from this time.

Address
14 Boulevard Pierre Paul Riquet
31000 Toulouse

#3 Californication club

The name says it all, the club is clearly inspired by a Californian style. Further still, Red Hot Chili Peppers! Music makes you dancing, drinks are at very affordable prices, to go further, among the best prices in the city.
Despite the inspiration of the place, you find all types of music, general enough to spend a good evening without a headache.

The Californication club is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 12:30 am to 7am. Admission is free.

Address
23 place Bachelier
31000 Toulouse


The bestest after parties in Toulouse


#1 The Coup d’état

It’s the date when you get out of clubs. Before 3am you won’t find many people there. You will then dive into a cellar of a very vintage style of bricks and vaults. The club is known to be really coolthanks to its music, decoration and drinks. Don’t expect to spend an elegant and classy evening either, given the time nobody is very fresh!

The coup d’état is open on Saturday and Sunday from 5am to 1pm/2pm. Admission is 5€.

Address
17 allée de Brienne
31300 Toulouse

PS: a flatshare of Chez Nestor is just a stone’s throw away, no need to worry to get home!

#2 L’Autre

That’s “the other” after club! A more relaxed atmosphere, or for all tastes: those who want to continue dancing, and those who just want to finish their evening chatting over yet another drink. If you’re a deep-house/techno fan, it’s for you! It’s the pink city reference. If you move to the bar side, it’s quieter. An atmosphere to start finishing his evening.

L’Autre is open on Saturday and Sunday from 5am to 11am. Admission is 5€.

Address
30 rue de Stalingrad
31,000 Toulouse

Now, you have some references to party in Toulouse, but also to continue your evenings until the early morning

The Atlantic and the Mediterranean just a stone's throw from Toulouse!

Want to escape? Beach? Exoticism? A relaxing holiday by the sea sipping a delicious cocktail always makes you dream… But they are not always within reach!
If you live in Toulouse whether for your studies, an internship, a job or anything else, you are lucky! Of course only with the city you know it well… Its festive and welcoming atmosphere surrounded by pink bricks give it an incomparable charm! The soft accent of the south west, the Garonne, the terraces… In short we love it! Even more when you’re in a flatshare in the city centre thanks to Chez Nestor!
If you live there for a long time, you will also want to escape for a weekend or a few days. Don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place!
Toulouse is ideally placed to take a few days off. You have, in addition, the opportunity to have the choice: Mediterranean Sea or Atlantic Ocean.
 
We’ll tell you a little bit more!
 

The Mediterranean Sea only 2 hours away!

 
You really want to be warm, to put your towel on the beach and to have the sea only a few meters away? Well, it’s possible!
Toulouse is about 2h drive (car or transport) from several cities in the South, so about 2h drive from the Mediterranean !
Rendez-vous in Narbonne, better known thanks to Narbonne beach “Narbonne plage”, to bury your feet in the fine sand, travel miles on a beach that never ends, play snowshoes, volleyball, or just for a swim!

Narbonne plage
A part of Narbonne’s beach!

 
You only have 1h30 by car and 1h45 by transport!
 
If you’ve been there before, these three cities….

  • Vias: 2h by car and 2h30 by transport,
  • Agde: 2h10 by car and 2h15 by transport,
  • Sète: 2h20 by car and 2h10 by transport,

…are also there to comfort you! A few kilometres away from Narbonne, these seaside resorts remain very accessible to escape for a few days.
 

The accessible Atlantic Ocean!

 
You have more mind surfing and diving in the waves? No worries, the Atlantic Ocean will satisfy you!
Get there in advance! It takes at least 3 hours to get to the West Coast. But the scenery is splendid. A typical Basque architecture, beaches as far as the eye can see, and especially big waves that can be a real spectacle!
A “cool” atmosphere, no headache! The weather may not always be good but the good mood is!
To do so, go to :

  • Biarritz: 3h10 by car and 4h30 by transport,
  • Hossegor: 3h05 by car and 4h30 by transport,
  • and also all the small towns in their surroundings…

 

Hossegor
Waves of Hossegor!

 
Even if the journey is a little longer, you won’t be disappointed!
In short, living in Toulouse for a while is the best! Going on a little trip to the seaside or to the ocean is largely feasible, and it does the greatest good!
Thanks to Toulouse, you can discover all the wonders that our wonderful country offers…and especially the South west !
Do not hesitate any more and come to Toulouse for a little while ! Chez Nestor is here to find you the perfect room in Toulouse.
