The South of France is one of the most impressive destinations for the summer, with plenty of cities to explore, from the picturesque Menton to the home of the rich and famous that is Monaco as well as the elegant and discreet paradise of St Jean Cap Ferrat. Yet all isn’t just relaxation under the sun drinking Aperol Spritz, the riviera is also home to some of the most vibrant clubs in the world. Here is the ultimate list of the best places to party for an afternoon or at night.
We start our journey with the iconic club of Monaco. After a dinner in Sass, heating up the atmosphere, head over to Jimmy’s, near Monte Carlo Bay. The club is an outdoor party, with various areas, from a dancefloor surrounded by tables ideal for large groups as well as stunning exterior spaces with additional tables. The club is circulated by a river on which champagne is delivered to some select tables by small boats with fireworks.
One of the best day parties on the Riviera, Anjuna is ideally located in the bay of Eze. Rent a boat in Monaco and cruise over to arrive at the iconic beach club in the utmost fashion. Enjoy a relaxed lunch from 12-14h and around 15h the atmosphere will heat up with the DJ increasing the volume, live entertainment starting and magnums of rosé pouring! Truly one of the most fun and relaxed party on the riviera Anjuna is a must-do.
If you are renting a villa in Cannes for the summer, you have to head over to the iconic club on Palm Beach. With some of the finest entertainment in the world, the club offers a vibrant atmosphere in a relaxed setting with cabaret-style dancers and more. Ideally located next to the new La Petite Maison, you can enjoy a relaxed dinner before heading to the party!
Our second-day party is accessible only by boat! You have to take a tender in Port Canto or rent your own to access the Iles St Marguerite and reach the iconic beach club. La Guérite’s history dates back to the 1900s first opened as a small restaurant and bar for the sailors, it’s now an iconic party place far from the eyes of the crowd. Make your stay in one of Cannes luxury villas vibrant!
Finally, we are making our way to St Tropez, the partying capital of the South of France, with legendary clubs and even more legendary beach clubs. Each year the world’s largest yachts come to the small French fishing village for a reason, the party scene is second to none. Hardly accessible to the crowds the city of St Tropez is mythical for the Jet Set and offers some of the finest parties. In Les Caves you will relax in a laid back environment yet chic and classy.
The iconic party restaurant in Pampelonne Beach, Bagatelle is most likely the most famous of all the places on the famous St Tropez beach. With a vibrant atmosphere and each table competing for the largest order of champagne, each followed by a show by the staff, there is no more vibrant setting for a lunch with friends. After the party, you can head straight into the crystal clear waters.
