Looking to party in Marseille? Right on Vieux Port is an endless row of pubs packed with people. Strangely, most of them were Irish. There’s also a ferris wheel if you want to live out your Marseille TV Series fantasy.
My favorite bar was a Scottish pub called The Queen Victoria. They served many varieties of Leffe including Leffe Royal.
Other notable spots were Club Exit which played good hip-hop, Havana Club for a taste of rum, and Shamrock which somehow has a perfect Yelp rating. There are also many nightclubs in and around Marseille, but I was too full from birthday dinner to do all that.
After walking around the marina, head for some after hours food. The hot sauce should be avoided and so should the falafel. The shawarma sandwich was decent enough but misses the cut for Best Kebab(p) in The World.
TPOL’s Tip: Marseille gets very cold at night. Bring a coat!
