Party Earth Blue Whales Review

The Scene

Patrons are greeted by a shark and a large blue whale at the door of the nautically-themed Blue Whales, one of Nice's late-night bars where crowds typically don't show up until 2am when other bars begin to close.

Patrons are greeted by a shark and a large blue whale at the door of the nautically-themed Blue Whales, one of Nice’s late-night bars where crowds typically don’t show up until 2am when other bars begin to close.

Though the bar is located inland in the old town, the underwater frescoes of marine life keep the casual and friendly clientele in a sea-faring state of mind.

While the upstairs area offers a quiet place for chatting, and shooting pool or chilling and smoking on the terrace, the downstairs bar is usually packed with people indulging in flaming shots and crowding around the stage to hear the live rock and jazz that goes on all night long.

Those looking for a rowdy night in a dive bar atmosphere will find Blue Whales the perfect spot for a wild late-night romp before hitting the beach at dawn.

Tip from Lucas:

One of the best deals around is the bar’s mètre de shooters – that’s twelve flaming shots for €25. Perfect for a group.
