As the only major city in the French Riviera, Nice has a much more vibrant and diverse apres dark scene than neighbors like Cannes or Antibes, although if you want to roll the dice well into the night in a glittering casino atmosphere, hop on the train to nearby Monte Carlo (it's just 30 minutes to the east by rail). But in Nice itself, when it comes to nightlife you have a rainbow of choices. There are homey pubs, including quite a few excellent British ones like Ben Ben and Wayne's, for casual pint quaffing with people from around the globe in chill environs. And there are dress to impress DJ led dance parties at A-list clubs like L'Ambassade and Les Trois Diables, which attract the city's social set and don't get going until nearly midnight. For something in between, try long-lived mainstay bars like Akathor Pub and Bar des Oiseaux, which have a mixture of dancing and seating. And then if you want the ultimate tres chic local experience check out Le Ghost, which has a speakeasy vibe and excellent DJs spinning a different style each night. Note that many nightlife venues in Nice serve a daily happy hour and many also serve food, which will help with the morning hangover. Here we give you a range of our favorite places to party in the city.
