106 Rue du Commerce, 37000 Tours, France
Now that's my kind of shotIf you’re traveling in the Loire valley in France, you’ll sure end up in the city of Tours. Is in the path to the Loire castles, there’s the beautiful cathedral, the quaint rues and the famous Place Plumereau or Place Plum as locals call it. The nightlife at Place Plum is amazing, you’ll find people from all over the world thanks to the university and the language institutes, so it has that international city vibe. There’s a bar that is well known among locals and internationals, that is bar L’ Alexandra. A little pub with 4 or 5 tiny tables and stools around the bar with more tables outside during summer. There is one more thing you need to know.. Vodka-caramel shot. I don’t know if its something you’ll find only in Europe, I’m still looking and so far you can only find it over there. All bars have it, but just one got it right! Yes, L’ Alexandra. When you go please order one, you won’t regret it! It’s not that strong as it sounds, just the correct amount of caramel that you won’t taste the vodka in it and is not sickly sweet. 2 euros worth it and why not, go ahead and ask for two or three more, nobody’s judging. Hey, you might end up speaking French!
