The Bar Sauvage, the Maona Monte-Carlo cocktail bar
"Bar Sauvage" is the lounge bar at the Maona Monte-Carlo, a major destination for mixology, dedicated to the art of partying and skilfully led by Giancarlo Mancino. “Sauvage”, which means “wild”, is symbolic of liberty and a passion for life. A name that represents the strength of the optimism of the 1960s.
A carefree spirit
As a prelude to dinner or afterwards, to cap off your evening, the Bar Sauvage welcomes you into its enticing surroundings filled with the sweet aroma of the dolce vita and its bright and delicately tangy colours. Here, we embrace the sixties, the pleasure of being together, the art of living and sharing the present moment, and all with a carefree spirit.
From 7pm to 9pm, the elegance of music meets the excellence of gastronomy with the "Piano Bar Aperitivo" offer! Take a sea-view seat, relax to the sounds of pianist Yari, and choose from our exquisite selection of signature cocktails, carefully crafted by our talented mixologists, or opt for a glass of sparkling brut champagne to start the evening with a touch of refinement. To accompany these delights, plunge into a world of tastes and textures with our light and crispy panisse fries, served with a chickpea and sundried tomato dip and Corsican cold meats. This gourmet creation, both vegan and gluten-free, is sure to delight the taste buds of those who love local flavours.
Giancarlo Mancino, mixology Italian-style
Reflecting the spirit of this high-voltage mixology bar, we find Giancarlo Mancino, one of the most lauded and respected barmen in the world. Having left his native region of Basilicata to train all over the world in the art of cocktails, he now comes to share the fruit of his 20 years of experience behind the counter at the Bar Sauvage. On his menu you will find the eternal classics of Italian mixology. A “vintage” serenade sung to the airs of the Bellini, Americano, Rossini and the unmissable Negroni. As Giancarlo Mancino’s signature is the selection of vermouths of an exceptional quality. Such as the Mancino Vermouth, drunk neat or in one of the bar’s signature cocktails, the Negroni Monte-Carlo 1956, in tribute to the year when H.S.H. Prince Rainier III married Grace Kelly.
A retro soundtrack
Bar Sauvage’s soundtrack reflects Mancino’s cocktail delights. Find a jazz lounge music playlist by Bon Entendeur, a live piano session, the fiendishly soulful voice of a diva and an electro-disco DJ set. From the beginning of the evening all the way through to the end of the night, the Maona Monte-Carlo and Bar Sauvage roll out their own deliciously retro soundtrack. The perfect Franco-Italian experience to top off the most fun-packed of trips in the Monaco of yesterday and today.
