It is a place that appeals to our collective memory, from that time that those under 20 cannot know! Today, the open-air café has taken on a facelift, it is trendy , lounge , in the city center… Urban people have appropriated this concept from another time with imagination and originality and everyone is benefiting from it.

The Guinguettes of Toulouse

In Toulouse , there are really many places to sit on the terrace to enjoy an aperitif or a simple, chic or cozy meal in a guinguette style. Here is a small non-exhaustive list but complete enough to allow you to calmly plan your next evenings! Write to us if you think we've forgotten your favorite tavern!

  • La Guinguette de Chouchou , a must in a magnificent setting on the Garonne, overlooking the Pont Neuf. Friendly atmosphere, delicious tapas, craft beers and lemonade, good desserts. What more ?
  • La Guinguette de Saint-Cyprien is open until October on the esplanade of Raymond VI park. View of the Garonne, intimate atmosphere with only 100 seats (so you know what to do: book) and for ice lovers, a brand new new machine, to enjoy the sweets of summer.
  • Sand fishermen , terrace, yard or garden, it's up to you! On the Quai de la Daurade, view of the Garonne, the Dieu hotel, the Dôme de la Grave, sit in the shade of the plane trees. Mixed plates to enjoy with a cold drink and a warm welcome.
  • The ephemeral Guinguette is an associative project. An idea between friends, part of an idea in the evening and with a pivot point, a dance floor! Each season is a joyous celebration, shared by the followers of this place, which is already at several seasons of pleasure. Concerts, a DJ, in short, a place not to be missed in Toulouse.
