Bar le Melhor 20 quai Gailleton - 69002 Lyon 2ème

In the evening, the “Le Melhor” (“the best” in the langue d'oc) lounge bar serves divine à la carte or custom-made cocktails in its muffled interior overlooking Lyon.

Its barmen combine prestigious spirits and homemade concoctions (syrups, bitters, froths...) to create their numerous and closely guarded secret recipes: there are over twenty cocktails on the menu to choose from.

A cosy venue that's sure to be as popular with travellers as it is with locals!

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.

More partial to savoury than sweet (even though offering her a praluline – a delicious brioche filled with pralines – is a sure-fire way to get in her good books), Camille devotes herself body and soul to testing new food establishments in Lyon. Her radar for new addresses is legendary.
