In addition to its well-known charms — the blue sky and sparkling ocean, breathtaking inland areas and places steeped in history — Monaco is an undisputed party capital of Europe. Although summer is the high point of Monaco’s nightlife, there is always something going on here, so everyone can enjoy their perfect evening out all year round. Whether it is electronic, exotic or extravagant, a night out in the Principality is always exclusive, and different every time...
Monaco’s nightlife: let’s get the party started
The nightlife of Monaco is an institution: party lovers from around the globe gather in its partying hotspots. Leading the pack when it comes to wild nights out is Jimmy’z Monte-Carlo where the greatest international DJs such as Bob Sinclar, Mark Ronson, Lost Frequencies and Martin Solveig, to name but a few, come to polish their styluses. The atmosphere is also electric at COYA Monte-Carlo’s Electro-Latin nights and at Buddha-Bar Monte-Carlo where chill meets chic. And if you want to continue the party with some live music, head to La Rascasse or the Blue Gin.
Summer, the ultimate party season
During summer, venues outdo one another with their imaginative and extravagant parties, such as like Buddha-Bar Monte-Carlo and its famous “White Party”, and the “One Thousand and One Nights” and “Summer Beach Party” themed events at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. A stone’s throw away, La Vigie Lounge & Restaurant, with its Bali-inspired decor, offers lounge evenings right on the waterfront. The Sun Casino’s games also join the Monaco summer party line-up – gatecrashing the Blue Gin and Jimmy’z Monte-Carlo, they provide a completely new “Casino Nomade” experience.
The most enchanting parties
Monaco is a destination famous for the major social and charity events it hosts. Every year, the Rose Ball and the Red Cross Gala Ball are high points in the Principality’s calendar. And when it comes to enchanting parties, the Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival is the place to be. An unmissable event for international stars, the festival has an eclectic and tantalizing lineup every year. And sometimes, a simple stroll around Monaco is enough to capture its dream-like beauty, such as when the sky is lit up by fireworks at the height of summer. The outdoor seating areas at Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer’s restaurants are the ideal spot to see the show.
For intimate evenings…
... Because a great night is sometimes an evening shared with those you love, in an intimate setting. For these more personal evenings, there is the Bar Américain, whose reputation is built on its jazz atmosphere and signature cocktails... Not to mention all the stars who like to have a good time there! A luxurious hideout in the heart of the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, the Crystal Bar cultivates a chic and convivial atmosphere for sharing fine champagne and original cocktails in complete privacy. The Salle Europe at the iconic Casino Monte-Carlo also offers an elegant and exhilarating atmosphere with a live orchestra, table games, and the sheer magic of the place to the intensify the atmosphere.
Soirées privées à Monaco
Les plus exclusives des soirées se jouent aussi au cœur des casinos et des hôtels de luxe, en Principauté. Des soirées privées qui mettent à l’honneur la fidèle clientèle de Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer et ses partenaires privilégiés. Si le Casino Café de Paris convie ses clients plusieurs fois par an pour des soirées placées sous le signe du chic et du glamour, le Casino de Monte-Carlo quant à lui dresse une liste d’invités triés sur le volet pour des soirées privées uniques. Les palaces se font aussi l’écrin des plus belles fêtes privées ; ainsi l’Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo a-t-il célébré les 100 ans de la maison Bentley. D'inoubliables soirées privées s’y sont aussi tenues à l’initiative de Lancôme ou encore Chaumet. Et bien des pages de la belle histoire des soirées monégasques restent assurément à écrire.
