This iconic establishment is no.1 on the Promenade des Anglais and unmissable in every sense of the word. Soaring above the Niçois skyline, it commands dazzling, widescreen views from the 10th floor. Once you’ve picked your jaw up from the floor, select something refreshing from the drinks menu, the Pear Cardamom fizzy cocktail comes highly recommended. Then sit back and enjoy some extraordinary views of the city. The ‘Lounge Corner’ is open from 10am to 5pm, but reservations are strongly recommended in summer as seating is limited. Although the prices are unforgiving, the delicious drinks menu helps takes the sting out of the bill.
