Party Earth Review Located under a large staircase across from the beach, L’Escalier’s easygoing, dive-bar vibe attracts a slightly gritty clientele looking for late-night fun.

French Riviera karaoke bars are less common than clubs and bars that put on karaoke nights. Mostly geared to the student crowd, these theme nights pull in big groups of friends ready to egg each other on in a battle for either public embarrassment or glory. L’Escalier, in Nice, hosts karaoke four nights a week each summer, and the casual crowds at this easygoing beach bar can pair their songs with big-screen sports watching.

Whether a jovial restaurant, high-end lounge, or gritty backpacker joint, French Riviera spots that boast karaoke are guaranteed to bring out the showmanship – and the laughs.
