It’s not hard to find a decent drinking establishment in Provence. After a hard day visiting the beaches or vineyards, there’s nothing better than the prefect bar to meet your mood – whether you want to party in St Tropez, enjoy rooftop cocktails in Nice, or mix your drinks with some jazz. Here’s our guide to ten of Provence‘s best bars.
The Byblos Hotel in St Tropez is the place to see and be seen. The bar, Les Caves du Roy – literally, “the wine cellar” – where you’ll find the A-Listers letting their hair down, is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017, and is a huge institution in this little village. They have impressive resident DJs but you’ll pay accordingly. A bottle of wine will be over €100. Dress to impress.
Opening hours: Every weekend from April to October. Every night in July and August. Check their Facebook page for special nights and precise opening hours (usually midnight to 6AM).
Sun 7 attracts a hip crowd who know how to party. There’s one location in Cannes and another in Nice. It’s open all night long in the summer and is a perfect “after” spot to have fun into the small hours. It serves a selection of fancy cocktails and you can check their Facebook page for DJ listings.
