Heading back to school used to be all about tricked out binders and cool book covers, but for college students, the back-to-school craze is all about uncovering new and exciting places to hang out. Students in La Rochelle have it easier than most because the city hosts several venues known for their student “Thirsty Thursdays”.


Tired of spending every night with your asleep-by-nine-thirty roommate, get out and check out The General Humbert’s Irish Pub & Club!!!
Well-known for its convivial atmosphere, this is the perfect place for enjoying a night with old friends or getting to know some new ones. This popular late-night spot feels more like Galway than La Rochelle offering a casual escape from the usual.


Keeping in mind the pockets of the average university student aren’t very deep, this is why The General Humbert is offering:

– reasonably priced drinks,
“Happy Hours” on all pints and some soft drinks from 6.00 to 8.00pm from Monday to Friday,
– and Student “special promotions” every Thursday night.


Whether you’re looking for Freshers week parties, a post-exam blowout or a great Thursday night out you just want to check out General Humbert!!!
