The Red Sky is an English pub located at the foot of Avignon. The square still allows the passage of cars but it is very limited and they have to go very slowly so as not to bother the tranquility of the terrace. Some trees provide shade for the place, and in front of the facade of the building there is a central market, fully covered with vegetation. Inside the place it is classic pub décor, with soft lighting and a dark wooden bar. They have a happy hour with cheap pints of beer until nine at night. The food is not really English, but more like local snacks. The service is faster if you order and pay directly at the bar.
Le Bar du Change is in one of the busiest streets of Avignon, in a totally pedestrian area. It is very nice and allowed the owners to be installed outside with terraces. Do not expect any shade because the streets are cobbled and with no vegetation around. But in spring during the cooler hours of the day it is very nice to come to have a drink here. Leave the square and go down bonnetterie Street heading south and to the left, the bar is two minutes walk, and less people. People are most authentic too, as well as the neighborhood. They serve a traditional French food with a basic assortment of baguettes sandwiches and cold drinks, coffees and teas.
The F Cafe is a fashionable coffee shop in the square for healthy bodies. The square itself is quite nice, with lots of cafes to choose from. This one is open all day, and is in front of the renovated Celestins church. In the morning, breakfasts start at 4 euros, and at noon you can have first and second courses and dessert for 12 euros. At night they become a restaurant and serve tapas from late afternoon. The "F" is very popular among the cool young people in Avignon. Go with your partner or with a group of friends, you'll like it. There is a special menu if you want to celebrate your birthday with a group of friends or family. The evening menu is a bit more expensive with main courses at 18€ and starters around 6€.
This pub is the Cours Jean Jaures of Avignon and easily accessible if you go by train or public transport, less if you come by car because it's hard to park in the historic center of Avignon. Inside it is decorated with wood, old advertisements of irish drinks such as Guinness. They have happy hour until 8 if I remember correctly, where a pint is worth 4.50. On the terrace there are people drinking almost on the street. It's on a corner and there is not much room to stand. The food they serve is basic but good, grilled meats, pizzas, salads, large servings, reasonably priced. There is a good atmosphere, rock music and locals. There is a good selection of beers but since most are imported it is expensive.
Le Forum is one of the most popular bar-restaurant-cafes in Avignon Clock Square. It is in front of the beautiful building of Ayuta. It offers a menu with typical regional specialties. It is cheaper at noon and early evening, when you can get two courses for 13 euros. This menu includes onion soup, salad, duck mousse, and several fish dishes or steak for the main course. As usual in France, then you can can choose between cheese or dessert. The 21 euro and 30 euro menus are good, with duck breast, suckling pig, salmon with vanilla and filet mignon in a brown sauce. The place is always busy and has a decor reminiscent of ancient Greek and Roman empires. There are tourists but also local people and the place has a great atmosphere.
