Fabulous Wine Bars in Nice

As the capital of the French Riviera, Nice has more than its fair share of wine bars where you can enjoy some of the finest vintages the region has to offer.

Start off your journey with a visit to Cave de la Tour. Serving customers in Nice’s Old City since 1947, you can sip on plenty of wines that have been produced locally. Make sure you note that it’s a place for early drinks though, as they close their doors at 8pm.

Another veteran of the Nice wine bar scene well worth a visit is Cave Wilson. Open since 1904, it’s the perfect place to go if you’d like to pair your wine with some fine music. The Friday and Saturday jazz nights are popular throughout the high season. With wines that hail from South West France, or the Sud-Ouest in the native tongue, ask the owners for some tips so you can sample some of the region’s best creations.

Spend the evening at La Petite Loge and support smaller wine producers. The bar stocks over 300 wines from independent vineyards, and it’s a favourite among local restauranteurs and sommeliers.

If you want to find a trendy spot to sip wine in Nice, then head to Tribeca Wine Bar. With modern art on the walls, DJs spinning great tunes, and a focus on the best wines from both France and the rest of the world, this place is a must-visit.

Elsewhere, try Cave 35 if you’re after a wine bar that’s open late. Combining a wine shop with a bar at the rear, you can take a bottle back to your hotel if you take a liking to one of the tipples that you try here.
