Jimmy’z epitomises Monaco, and drinks here will cost you at least €30. The club is set around a stunning Japanese garden, overlooking the Mediterranean, complemented by a pool.

Monte-Carlo Casino

So this needs little introduction – you’re in Monaco after all. A night out in the principality cannot be complete without at least visiting this iconic establishment. Read our Monte-Carlo Casino guide for all you need to know about your outing here.

La Rascasse

Like many other places in Monaco, La Rascasse is a café by day, and a bar and live music venue by night. If you’re an F1 fan, you should definitely check out La Rascasse as it is situated on the Rascasse bend of the circuit. Furthermore, the terrace is great here, and the vibe is more casual.

La Note Bleue

Colorful cocktails

This beach bar is what Monaco does best: sun, sea and cocktails – altogether. La Note Bleue is chic, and the place to be if you’re looking for a chilled-out yet unforgettable night in Monaco.

Le Bar Américain

If you’re into jazz then this is the piano bar for you. Located in the plush Hotel de Paris, Le Bar Américain will offer you an unforgettable night, away from strobe lights and heaving crowds. Furthermore, you can also enjoy a great coastal view from here.

Fort Antoine

Throughout summer, Monaco’s small fortress turned open air theatre, Fort Antoine, hosts evening plays. Although, by day this venue is just another peaceful corner in the principality, nothing can beat the evening experience it offers. Definitely not to be missed.

Brasserie de Monaco

With one of the most expansive terrace spaces in the principality, Brasserie de Monaco is open from midday to 2 a.m. for beers and merriment. Beers because it is home to Monaco’s only craft beer, and merriment because it’s Monaco, after all!

Café de Paris

This is perhaps one of the most iconic places in Monaco. This famous spot, in the shadow of the Monte-Carlo Casino, is open until 2 a.m. and is just as great for a night cap as it is for day-time people watching.

L’Opéra de Monte-Carlo

For a sophisticated and memorable affair, Monaco’s Opera should be at the top of your list. Pure opulence and beauty, just make sure you book ahead.
