How is life in life in Neuchatel??

Hello
I have a really good job offer in Le Locle and plan to live in Neuchatel.
I would like to know how is the nightlife in Neuchatel, what does a saturday night look like?

I am 26 and afraid to be bored.... It is really nice but seems quiet.

Please give me your opinions!!

thanks in advance

Re: How is life in life in Neuchatel??

Depends on what you are into I suppose?

I lived in Neuchatel for about 6 months back in 2000. Went out mostly to the Chauffage http://www.chauffage-compris.ch/, Le Debits de Vins, and Le Cafe du Cerf http://www.cafeducerf.ch/.

When I'm able to get up to Neuchatel I usually end up in Le Cafe du Cerf, close it, and then get dragged by the Irish boys from one late night bar or nightclub to another until it's early enough to get croissants through the backdoor of the bakeries.

Compared to Cincinnati Ohio for example, which is 7 times bigger than Zurich, which is 10 times bigger than Neuchatel, I found Neuchatel quite on par for watering holes. Dance clubs aren't my thing, so no help there.

Hi dk26 and welcome to this forum!

There have been several threads about Neuchâtel, check them out by using the "Search" button. I'm afraid to say that you're probably right, you might be bored there, Neuchâtel isn't really known for a busy night life. But you always have the choice of going to Berne which in my eyes is not that far away.

dk26, you're right, Neuchâtel is a rather quiet place.
It isn't a particular noisy, hectic, busy buzzing town, not during the day and also not during the night. Many around here like it that way. It sure is a very lovely town though.

There is a nightlife, but as with many other things, good company makes all the difference. If someone at your working place knows the Cerf, go with them, it'll be a good start.

.... stick to Neuchâtel (as in: Le Locle is too quiet) .... there is some night life in Neuch and you've got the lovely Fête des Vendanges coming up which is lots of fun.
