3 Avenue Georges Gallice
An upper crust playground for hundreds of years, the French Riviera is where the rich and famous of today come to party in some of the hottest most exclusive clubs in the world.
The French Riviera clubs boast incredibly tight door policies, exorbitant bottle-service prices, and a see-and-be-seen crowd of famous celebrities, models, actors, and mega-loaded finance types who mix and mingle to DJ heavy beats while admiring each other’s tans. Some of the hottest clubs in the French Riviera are in Cannes and really get rocking with celebrity clientele during the annual film festival where A-listers bypass the velvet ropes to flirt with their equally hot and talented counterparts.
But beyond the jet-setting scene, there are plenty of great, down-to-earth, accessible nightclubs in Nice and beyond where waiting in line is merely a capacity issue and doormen are there to simply break up scuffles. Here, dance-happy students, young professionals, and bachelorette and birthday groups dance late into the night, celebrating the fact that they’re in the most expensive part of the world and didn’t pay a dime to get in.
High-end or otherwise, the French Riviera party scene goes late, and there’s just something about being in the sun all day that makes partying at night that much better.
