Le Hangar à Bananes

This former warehouse located at one end on the island of Nantes is a key point in the city nightlife. The name, Hangar à Bananes, is no accident. Since 1929 bananas were downloaded here arriving from the Netherlands and Ivory Coast, and stored to let mature. But with the independence of these colonies, traffic began to wane and eventually, the hangar was abandoned until it regained space because of the contemporary art biennial Estuaire 2007.

Taking Navibus that crosses the Loire, you get to this area where you will find a wide selection of stylish bars, restaurants, exhibition halls and nightclubs, as AlterCafe or Icone. Perfect to go any day of the week to eat or drink in the sunny terraces and enjoy a nice drink by the river Loire. In addition, the hangar environment preserves some interesting traces of its industrial past and other new works as the 18 rings by artist Daniel Buren, that light up in different colors at nightfall.

We’ll be there. If you want to come too, check out our flights here.
