A good place to get into the swing of things is Le Bar
Américain where the upper-crust mingle and socialise with
their Champagne and cocktails in hand, while a jazz trio belts out
some upbeat tunes to get you in the mood. But on a perfect warm
summer's evening there's no better place to watch the sun go down
that at the hip and trendy Sea Lounge where party people meet over
a cocktail or two by the water's edge in Monte Carlo Beach.
The Living Room and the Black Legend are popular nightclubs where anyone wanting to get their groove on can dance the night away, while lively bars like the Ship and Castle or Black Diamond are more upmarket and many come here to pose and be seen. Jimmy'z on avenue Princesse Grace is the place to go where you can don your favourite party outfit, slip into those killer heels and dance the night away with Monte-Carlo's beautiful people.
If live music is what you're after, visit Moods on place du
Casino, which has already attracted some big international acts
while Sass Café is another hot spot for live music, lots of
dancing and a rip roaring good time. Or if jazz is more your thing,
head to the Blue Note to get your groove on!
For a quieter and more sophisticated night out, the Grand Théâtre de Monte Carlo is the place to go to see international ballets and other productions as well as the Ballets de Monte Carlo. Mention the resident opera company, and the symphony, while the Monte Carlo Opera also draws hundreds of visitors to its world-class performances.
