I found your page because I'm thinking of going to Montpellier maybe this October. What's your favorite bar or neighborhood to go out for drinks?
If you go to the center of montpellier, all the streets are pedestrian and there are café's terrace everywhere (go to small streets or small places because the main places like comédie are too crowdy and touristic). Personally I prefer wine bars and there are 2 I like very much : l' endroit and the times café.
There is a new place oppenning in the south of montpellier, near the river, it 's called marché du lez and there are food trucks and shops with tables outside, it's quite nice too
