Where to Drink + Dance in Nice, France

bar

Le Beau Rivage

Nice, France

Perched upon the pebbly beach, this lively beach bar serves all the right cocktails for an afternoon tipple. Shaded by the milky white and blue parasols, take a seat on one of the plush sofas, soak in the last of the sun’s rays and sip on an ice-cold Aperol spritz while watching the bikini-clad elite waltz up and down the beach.

La Terrasse at the Meridien Hotel

Nice, France

Not the cheapest cocktail bar but definitely worth it for the top-notch panoramic views of the Med. Located on the 10th floor of Le Meridien Hotel, this sleek bar is a mix of contemporary Mediterranean flavours and sparkling cocktails. Sit back with a long drink while watching the sun go down over the bay.

bar

Shapko

Nice, France

This live music bar is a big hit with those looking to dance late into the night. The decor is simple; wooden floors and ornate rugs with a mezzanine upstairs overlooking the performance area. It’s an unpretentious, laid-back version of the majority of the going out venues in Nice. Go there for great cocktails and an even better time.
