This pub is popular among English-speaking Nice visitors, thanks to its Irish-style ambience and English-speaking staff. The pints are cold, the entertainment is varied, and good humor is evident: a sign outside reads, "We play the music we like, so if you don't like it then you know what you can do." There are also movie nights on a big screen and plenty of theme nights to keep things interesting.

One of the most authentically British pubs in Nice, Big Ben offers a much more relaxed atmosphere than most of the others.

Good food is available, as well, including English-style favorites such as steak tartare and a variety of pastries, teas and coffees.

This is the most famous bar in Nice and for good reason. Visitors of all ages – especially English-speaking ones – flock here for the atmosphere, the drinks, and the guaranteed good time. For club-hoppers, this is a necessary stop, either early or late. For diners looking for one post-prandial drink before calling it a night, you can't go wrong here. The dark wood interior is inviting, the live music entertaining, and the drink list extensive, but the big draw here is the ever-present party crowd.
