The Monaco Grand Prix may be done and dusted, but Monte-Carlo is just gearing up for a long and languid summer. Should you find yourself in the principality, here are our top five picks for what’s hot and happening after hours:
At the heart of Le Sporting Monte-Carlo complex, Jimmy’z is one of the world’s most legendary nightclubs.
Enchanting a chic international clientele of showbiz, fashion and silver screen stars with glamorous parties on the seafront of the Riviera, Jimmy’z also attracts some of the world’s biggest DJs to its turntables.
A summer favourite of Monegasques and visitors to the principality alike, Sea Lounge is a place to be and be seen.
Enjoy a hookah on the terrace or drinks by the beach with the sand at your feet. Located in the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel, Sea Lounge epitomises summertime on the French Riviera.
With a seaside terrace offering glorious views of the Riviera, Blue Gin is quintessential Monaco.
Part of the Monte Carlo Bay resort, Blue Gin is renowned for its magical cocktail bar with original concoctions whisked up by specialised mixologists and features a contemporary icy-cool décor, billiards room and Shisha menu.
Le Bar Americain
Located in Hotel de Paris, Le Bar Americain is somewhat of an establishment in Monaco.
Featuring low-key ambiance, beautiful wood, leather armchairs and subdued lighting, it’s the perfect venue for an evening tipple prior to a trip to the Casino.
Located on the top floor of the Grimaldi Forum, Zelo’s is a restaurant and thrilling nightclub.
Offering panoramic views of Monaco and the Mediterranean Sea, Zelo’s is the perfect location for an aperitif or to dance the night away.
After-party Bonus Location:
Hosted at Le Meridien Plaza, Amber Summer is the official Monaco after-party. After hitting any of the above locations, Amber Summer (owned by F1’s Amber Lounge) is the perfect way to wind down the evening.
Stick around until 5AM and enjoy a sumptuous breakfast while watching the sun come up on the Riviera’s famed horizon.
