Located at Quai Saint Vincent
- a beautiful location along the banks of the River Soane - Le Quai des Arts
is an upscale creative arts space, which includes a bar, restaurant and very pleasant outside terrace area. The location is relatively quiet, as the bar and terrace are situated away from the road area. In addition, this location is particularly picturesque, as it is located within the grounds of the beautifully designed buildings of the 'Ecole National de Beaux-Arts'
(National School of Fine Arts), and the first floor restaurant and lounge area offers a relaxing view of the opposite River Soane.
The interior design is unpretentiously artistic and creative; providing a space that is both inspiring and convivial. Whether you're out for an evening drink, looking for a quick lunch or wanting to dine in a lovely location, Les Quai des Arts
is a great place for all. The restaurant menu has an element of the traditional Lyonnaise, while combining originality and a creative edge. The lunchtime menu includes a set (3 courses) menu priced at 16 euros and a plat du jour
(dish of the day) priced at 9.50 euros. The evening menu is more refined; offering a three course meal for 25 euros, plat du jour at 12 euros and meals from the menu between 14 and 16 euros. Also, Les Quai des Arts
offer a Sunday brunch, priced at 22 euros.
The music is also creative at this night and day spot; listen to Latino, Jazz and Lounge, and visit at the weekend for live bands and DJs. For the up and coming music agenda, take a look at the website.
