"Patrons looking for a student bar with cheap drinks and a rowdy atmosphere will find it at CheckPoint Pub. _x000D_

Patrons looking for a student bar with cheap drinks and a rowdy atmosphere will find it at CheckPoint Pub.

A homey upstairs area features the wide main bar, several booths lit by busted-up neon signs, and a wide-screen TV, while the cozier downstairs area is home to a second bar and a small dance floor.

Free space is at a premium in the basement, though the rather preppy regulars and bubbly young travelers don’t seem to mind as they elbow their way through the crowd and thoroughly indulge in the raucous vibe of loud music, high-energy dancing, and strong drinks.

For an outgoing young crowd and wild parties, it’s hard to beat CheckPoint Pub as a major stop on a round of barhopping.

This place closes earlier than others in the area, so its drink specials and party vibe make it a perfect first stop for the night. Arrive before 10pm on Wednesdays to avoid the massive line for the €1 shots.

Where's the party?
Claire T. Jul 26, 2013
Checkpoint is one of the Irish pubs in Nice that is known by everyone. It's near the big fountain. At first entry no one would think that it's a hype for parties since the main entrance would lead to a bar with some tables and chairs and a mini dance area on the side. But wait! There's more! If one wants to go to the toilet, it's downstairs, and lo and behold: there is an underground dance area which has it's own bar, DJ and everyone. Strobe lights lighting up the area with feel good music by DJs.

Checkpoint is a moneysaving paradise. This was typically our pre-drink destination because it’s non-pretentious and doesn’t try to be anything it’s not: a touristy Irish bar with cheap drinks and lots of spirit. My knowledge of the basement is limited due to the fact the one time we tried to go downstairs we couldn’t breathe, much less move, and quickly retreated to the upstairs before downing our drinks and going to—Wayne’s, which has a similar atmosphere except for the saving grace of the tables providing a safe haven from the sweaty, immobile dance floor. At Checkpoint, you can have both or choose one, and it is always better to have options.
Fun bar with a relaxed and young atmosphere and great music to dance to.

Checkpoint Pub has something for everyone, from karaoke night to ladies night when all the girls can drink champagne for almost nothing. The bar is constituted of two floors, the first floor is more or an Irish pub type bar where people can choose from a wide variety of drinks and beers, and the basement has more of a club vybe, where you can dance all your worries away as the DJ spins different styles of music according to the night theme. This bar is popular amongst both local and international students who are looking for a night of careless fun.
