Les Dix Fûts
AFTERWORK ET CRAFT BEERS
It’s without hesitation that we recommend you stop off at this bar with terrace in the centre of town, on Rue de Bourgogne.
With its cosy industrial style and tasteful combination of wood and iron, it has a very warm atmosphere.
Les Dix Fûts doesn’t make it easy, with ten craft beers on draught (hence the name!) and a selection of bottled beers. White, blonde, red or brown beers, lager, IPA, pale ale, stout, pils or brown ale… the choice is tough! But that’s without counting on the staff, who are passionate about helping you discover the different flavours and aromas of these craft beers. Every week, there are at least one or two new beers from independent brewers.
Satisfy your munchies with platters of charcuterie and/or mature cheeses prepared by the team!
Good to know, Les Dix Fûts likes to share. They organise Tap Take Over evenings, inviting a craft brewery to take control of the beer taps.

Step inside this wine bar, bistro and wine shop, with its royal blue façade and pretty mouldings, at the entrance to a delightful cobbled street on the Place du Châtelet.

Les Becs à Vin was founded by a group of passionate friends who wanted to share their love of wine, so you can enjoy it by the glass or by the bottle, indoors or on the terrace. They have selected more than 200 bottles of natural, organic, additive-free and environmentally-friendly wines for you to choose from.
In a warm and friendly bistro atmosphere, they offer their advice on finding the grape variety that will thrill your palate. Having opted for wines and grape varieties from all the regions of France, a few foreign vintages and numerous bottles of Loire Valley wines, there is no doubt a wine to suit your taste.
There’s pleasant music playing in the background, which, along with a menu of refined ‘bistro’ dishes, makes for a relaxed moment of sharing.

Ver di Vin
A wine bar-restaurant in the heart of Orléans’ historic centre and two enthusiasts – that’s the recipe for a great evening out. Ver Di Vin is a chef and a sommelier who thrive in this atypical venue full of charm.
Once you’ve descended the stairs, you’ll discover their large 13th-15th century vaulted cellar, where the stone walls add a touch of history to the setting. Go there as a romantic get-together, with friends or family. The two managers also know how to adapt to group requests, should you have a special occasion to celebrate.
Renowned for their professionalism, passion and enthusiasm, they offer a selection of 24 top-quality wines, renewed every month. The wine is the star of your meal. You can choose to accompany it with an assortment of puff pastries, Italian and Iberian charcuterie, a platter of quality Swiss cheeses or a terrine of semi-cooked foie gras. On the menu, gourmet dishes and rare quality products, the reflection of a meeting, an exchange and a story told by the owners of the premises.
