La Commune

Most visitors to Lyon stick to the Presqu'île, or city center, but it’s worth venturing out to this food court where many popular restaurants got their start as pop-ups. New stalls with cuisines from all over the world regularly set up shop, so take your time to suss out the options, hear the sales spiel, and figure out if you want large portions of Korean fried chicken and merguez couscous, or just a few gyoza and profiteroles.

After your meal, hit the bar for a round or two of the draft beer that’s very good despite being expensive by Lyonnais standards. Be sure to time your trip with the events like 90s karaoke, kid-friendly brunches, DJ sets, and more.
