Pubs and Bars in Monaco
Compared with other parts of the Riviera, the nightlife in Monte Carlo is more subdued with only a smattering of pubs, bars and discos. Though you don’t need to be a millionaire to play the slot machines in the casino, it helps if you look like one as it has a smart dress code in place. Monte Carlo is not one of Europe's cultural hubs, but it does have a decent array of performances, especially during the summer months.
For decent pub food, head to McCarthy’s Irish Pub, which serves up surprisingly good nosh in a friendly, glitter-free environment. There’s live music on weekends and it’s a good place to relax, have a Guinness and catch up on the sport. No pomp and ceremony here, and there’s certainly no chandeliers and gold cutlery, which after a few days in Monaco can be quite a relief.
Nicknamed the “Waterfront” of Monaco, this beachfront space offers stunning Mediterranean views. When you’re sitting comfortably in the lounge, the glass walls that surround the terrace make you feel as if you’re basking on a boat, sailing among the large yachts moored in the distance.
An authentic Irish pub in the chic Mediterranean city enclave of Monte Carlo, McCarthy's is the place to go for cold beer, live sports, and good times.
La Note Bleue, a name that evokes the dream, just as the place that Anne and Alain Tanzi wanted to create. As well a tribute to the legendary saxophone player Barney WILEN. An exceptional place, able to connect simplicity to sophistication and comfort to elegance.
Decorated with shade sails, the terrace is an area where the sweetness of the sun belongs.
