Les Vins d'Aurelien

What makes this particular wine shop stand out from competition is the owner, Aurélien, who is a wine connoisseur and enthusiast that prides himself on being personally involved in tasting and independently selecting each wine represented at the boutique. Quality is, therefore, at the forefront. Wine tastings are held frequently; check the website for schedules.


Rue de Bethune is Lille's main shopping thoroughfare, while Rue de la Grande Chausseé is the place to go for upscale luxury brands. There are plenty of individual boutiques selling deli (try the local Le Vieux Lille cheese) and drinks, with plenty of ethnic shops scattered around the Wazemmes area. Lille's modern shopping centre, Euralille, contains stores of internationally known brands, as well as all the facilities one would expect from a commercial complex of the kind.
