To walk in the door of the Buddha-Bar Monte-Carlo is to take a trip to faraway Asia. The warm colours, Buddha statue and lounge ambience are perfect for relaxing and having a great time. Thai and Japanese cuisine are showcased in a menu that mixes Asian flavours.
The breathtaking decor includes a 7-metre-high ceiling, different kinds of wood, sculptures, cornices, stucco and gilding. Not to mention an impressive host: a colossal Buddha from Asia, in a meditation pose. Two open-air terraces complete this other-worldly setting. The best way to enjoy the sweet summer nights!
An elegant musical design… Papadia Donato, aka DJ Papa, is an iconic figure at Buddha-Bar Monte-Carlo. Behind the decks, the resident DJ overlooks the Lounge Bar, distilling their minimalist musical fragrance, a subtle blend of lounge, chill out and world music, delicately embellished with ethnic or electro beats.
The restaurant serves exotic flavours. Enjoy sashimi, maki, sushi and other Asian culinary delights from China, Japan, Thailand and South-East Asia while sipping some sake or a signature cocktail. Here, Chef Éric Guillemaud and his brigade invent and combine Asian flavours and products with French gastronomic excellence.
The story behind it all: the bar stands where the old Cabaret de Monte-Carlo used to be at the beginning of the century, a theatre/concert hall in the Casino de Monte-Carlo itself.
More surprises await at the Buddha-Bar Monte-Carlo: Papadia Donato, aka DJ Papa, is the bar’s other star resident. From behind his decks, the resident DJ watches over the Lounge Bar, distilling minimalist musical treats in a subtle fusion of lounge, chill-out and world music, all delicately seasoned with a handful of ethnic beats and electro.
