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.
Opening hours: 9:30PM to 5AM, daily.
