Chez Tao Calvi

Probably Corsica’s most famous nightlife spot, Chez Tao was the island’s first club, opened in 1935. It’s tucked in the historic town of Calvi, with its medieval fortress and romantic historical centre. The club was founded by Tao Kerefoff, a Russian exile who was enamoured by Calvi when he arrived here in 1928. Chez Tao soon became a haunt for the city’s well-heeled locals. Today, it’s first and foremost a piano bar: every evening begins with a live piano performance, before DJs take the reins and pump music late into the night.

Le Patio Porto-Vecchio

This sleek, open-air bar is Porto-Vecchio’s best night out. You can sip champagne cocktails on one of the luxurious sofas or, when things get busy (which is often), party-goers weave around the seating areas, swaying to music played by sought-after local DJs. Elegant finger-food is served, from cheese and charcuteries to inventive tapas. They do a mean tequila sunrise, too.

B’52 Bonifacio

One of Corsica’s liveliest nightlife venues, B’52 is in the picturesque port town of Bonifacio. Open during the summer months, it’s best-known for its imaginative club-night events and special DJ sets. It’s no stranger to celebrity faces, either: recent guests have included famous French DJ and producer Joachim Garraud. If you don’t feel like dancing, you can take a seat on the pretty terrace outside.
