Best Bars in Nice
Melissa Miller says:
Waynes! The live music is great!
Wayne’s is also recommended by: Jodie Clarke, Jackie Graham, Carol Chen, Maria Emelyanova, Lara Ho, Sophie Montagnat, Maria Emelyanova, Olivia Quince, Galyna Prymak and Brad White.
By far the most popular bar with backpackers in Nice, Wayne’s attracts people from all corners of the globe. Ladies come to swoon at the bartenders and guys come to swoon at the girls swooning at the…you get the picture. Popular for live music, here everybody is dancing on the tables in no time.
Location: 15 Rue de la Préfecture.
Melissa Miller (again) says:
Checkpoint has some great happy hour specials.
This self-styled ‘Irish disco pub’ is where sports fanatics go in their droves to see football, rugby and more. As with all Irish bars, you can get typical pub grub, while there’s lots of live music too, so something for everybody. Free Wifi too which is always handy.
Location: 2 Rue Desboutin.

High club is the best on Promenade des Anglais, Nice!
Calling all dance music fans! High Point attracts those who like to party into the small hours of the morning to the sound of the latest house tunes. Attracting DJs from all over the world. Here you’ll find two separate rooms with revellers going crazy in either.
Location: 45/47 Promenade des Anglais

I always recommend AKAThor on Cours Saleya, if only for the good memories… Or for the lack of memories… 😉
Famous for its live music in this city in the south of France, bands can be found on the stage here every night of the week. If that isn’t enough to entice, every hour is happy hour on Monday nights, while Tuesdays are ladies nights when members of the female community get deals on wine.
Location: 32 Cours Saleya.
Recommended by: Catherine Huard and Laurie Couture .
No, this isn’t the name of a bar in Nice where everyone wears their flip flops on a man-made beach. Catherine and Laurie literally do mean the beach. Go down to Nice’s rocky beach any evening during the summer and you will find groups of young people sitting round with beers and bottles of wine. Definitely a night out to try in Nice.
Location: Place Saint Géry, 25.
Laurent Caraffa says:
Pompeii in the old city! After midnight everybody dances on the tables!
We agree. Pompeii is famed for its live music, and in particular rock music.
Location:16 Rue de l’Abbaye.
Tasha Sweeney says:
They opened just for us after our first night there. Amazing people, drinks, and atmosphere!
Le Feeling is one of Nice’s most popular gay bars and attracts both locals and tourists alike. It can get packed, but this only helps create a better buzz in the place.
Location: Rue de Savoie, 68.
