It really feels like the south at the boulodrome ball park of the Porte Dorée! Every Thursday, there is a pétanque happy hour from 6pm to 1am, so start rolling, all the equipment is on loan.
You get the picture, this ball game is going to be the most trendy sport for summer. In short pétanque is the new snobbism…
And here no matter how adroit you are, you will be playing to in tune with DJ sets because the terrain also happens to be a dance floor.
The absolute must: a barbecue to nibble on skewers or a « chien-chaud » (no anglicism is allowed during our all French week, note from the editors) and rosé, bien sûr (count 16 € for a bottle) unless you go for a pint of béer (6 €).
Les apéros de la pétanque, every Thursday from 6pm to 1am. More information on Facebook.
