For those who are wondering, Le Sud is now up-to-code. You will be greeted by a bouncer and yes, he may not be the nicest, but don't be impressed. The entrance will be probably be around 2.50- 3 Euros and if it is still the case, you'll get a card that will give you free access for a year! The peanuts, vodka and Middle-Eastern influenced interior is still there but now, Le Sud has three rooms. The main one plays current hits, the smallest one is more techno-oriented, the basement is for "oldies" (read: '80s and ‘70s).
The crowd: long gone is the era of those "in-the-known". Now, you'll be more likely to bump into young European Union trainees, local students and maybe an old faithful or two (most of them are too old anyway).
The mood: Not snobby or stuffy and with the help of Le Sud's vodka, it gets even friendlier. You're likely to have a great time.
