Blue Cargo


Ave. Ilbarritz, Ave. du Lac,

When travelers think of French nightclubs, visions of Paris's trendy, velvet rope venues—with their pulse pounding club music, hypnotic lightshows, and super model clientele—usually spring to mind. That's not the scene at this at casual club on Biscay Bay, where the concrete walls and loud techno music are replaced by the tranquil ambiance of sandy beaches and crashing waves. The Blue Cargo offers seafood and French cuisine during the day, but after sunset the tables are cleared under the white, angular canopy covering the beachfront deck, and transforming the outdoor dining area into an en plein air dance floor that often features international DJs and live bands.
