Monaco’s Top Bars: Featuring Fantastic Cocktails and Late Night Snacks


Fairmont Monte Carlo

Trip Advisor Review: 4.5 · Bar

High-end retreat featuring refined quarters, 24-hour dining, a rooftop pool & a shopping centre.

The Telegraph rated the Fairmont Monte Carlo a 9/10 for Food and Drink in a recent review:

“The acclaimed international restaurant brand Nobu blends Asian cuisine with a hint of South American, while the ground-floor Saphir24 is open for light meals and snacks 24 hours a day. The top-floor Horizon Deck serves up a Mediterranean fare and 360-degree views over the principality and the sea.

Monte Carlo Buddha-Bar

Trip Advisor Review: 4.5 · Bar

In the Buddha-Bar, the excellence of European tourism meets the reference for high-end Asian gastronomy. Monte-Carlo and the Buddha-Bar found common ground in an exceptional venue: Monte-Carlo’s old cabaret, a concert hall built at the beginning of the 20th century in the building that houses the Casino de Monte-Carlo. The monumental Buddha that is the symbol and fetish of the Buddha-Bar concept finds its home against a sumptuous and luxurious backdrop of oak woodwork, stucco, sculpture and gilding.

In this enormous hall with seven-metre ceilings and scenographic lighting, the bar, lounge and restaurant are spread out over 1000 square metres. With the Buddha-Bar, Monte-Carlo’s legend lives on into the 21st century through its original rendition of a European and Asian crossroads

Nicknamed the “Waterfront” of Monaco, this beachfront space offers stunning Mediterranean views, all year round from its heated outdoor terrace.
