Nice is the perfect destination if you’re looking for great European nightlife over the summer months. Start your evening along the waterfront, where the Promenade des Anglais is lined with beach bars that get busier as the sun goes down.

If you want to plan a bar crawl, the clubbing scene in Nice is centred around Rue Droite, Place Masséna and Cours Saleya. If you’re after something that’s a bit different, Nice has a bar that showcases Baroque classical music. Decked out like a stylish jazz hangout, the appropriately named Baroque Bar also serves drinks like mulled wine to continue with the traditional theme.
