Nice Uncovered: Walks Through the Secret Heart of a Historic City

Nice Nightlife

Getaway deals at

Nice has, hands down, the best and most varied nightlife on the Cote d'Azur. From grungy pubs to chic piano bars to massive discos, the party scene in Nice rocks! Ground zero is undoubtedly the Old Town (Vieux Nice) where revelers are elbow to elbow on summer nights but there's also night action along the quays and in the streets that radiate out from avenue Jean Medécin. And, there's no more smokey aftereffects either on your clothes or in your lungs. Nice nightspots are fully in compliance with France's no-smoking laws.

Gays, lesbians and trans are most welcome in this sophisticated, fun nightclub. The DJs are always first-rate and there are regular party nights.  Don't judge a club by its door (policy)


High Club, NiceHigh Club
45 Promenade des Anglais

High is a club with a concept. There's a pounding disco for the 20 to 30 crowd and then a separate room, Studio 47 with gentler music for the "old" folks. Weekends only except in summer.

Bars--Old Town

Karpedie'MLe Karpedie'M
14 rue benoit Bunico

This newcomer on the night scene has become an obligatory stop on the Nice bar circuit as much for its friendly staff as its exhaustive array of cocktails.Plus, the music is kept in the background to encourage conversation.

Johnny's Wine Bar
1 rue Rosetti
04 93 80 65 97
(closed Monday)

Most convivial, most homey and with frequent live music, this lively spot is relaxed and easy on the budget.

Le ShapkoLe Shapko
5 rue Rossetti
06 23 33 71 20

Thumping techno not your thing? You won't hear a single drum machine here. Le Shapko is devoted to jazz and only jazz. It's young, lively and a wonderful showcase for local groups.
