Monaco is the world’s second smallest country, but it makes up for its size with the glitzy Monte Carlo nightlife right on the French Riviera. Its bright lights have been luring the rich and famous since the 19th century and you’ll be mixing with a crowd of film stars, models and playboys on your night out.

This luxury part of Monaco has extraordinary sea views, elegant restaurants and some of the best bars in the Western Mediterranean. Drawing visitors from all over the globe, sipping cocktails on a sun terrace and clinking glasses with friends in a speakeasy bar will be the one of most fundamental parts of your holiday to Monte Carlo.

A young and trendy crowd

In the past Monte Carlo had a bit of a stuffy reputation, but these days it attracts a young, fashionable crowd. If you’re looking for the ultimate Monte Carlo night out then visit when the glamorous Formula 1 Grand Prix is in town.

With exquisite historic bars, clubs that don’t close until sunrise, and views out from the hilltop over the sea, you’ll find yourself planning your next holidays to Monte Carlo before your first one is finished. Dine out on the best seafood around and hang out in jazz lounges before moving on to the iconic venues of Buddha Bar and La Racasse.

It’s best to dress to impress if you want to get in wherever you like in Monte Carlo. It’s not a raucous town by any means and instead its nightlife is based around beautiful bars where cocktails are a highly prized art form and stylish relaxation is the goal.

The dining options will spoil you for choice and whether you’re looking for the finest wines on a terrace or want to dance the evening away at on an outdoor dance floor, Monte Carlo will capture your spirit and never let it go.
