The French Riviera is obviously a beautiful region of the country, and its mild weather makes it a great year-round destination. In fact, even in the early spring you can spend your days on the beach, if not sunbathing, at least relaxing at one of the many beach clubs. But what is there to do at night in and around Nice? Here are our nightlife suggestions.

Nightlife in Nice

The best way to find your favorite nightlife activities in Nice is to get lost in the back streets of Vieux Nice, the old city center. Here you'll find upscale cocktail bars like Smarties, rowdy pubs like Wayne's, cool jazz clubs like Staccato, and plenty of other places with outdoor seating to while away the evening hours over a bottle (or two).

Nightlife in Cannes

Even if you're not in town for the impossibly glamorous Cannes Film Festival, you can still find plenty of debauchery and fun to be had once the sun goes down. Here, the action usually happens in restaurants that miraculously turn into lounges and dance clubs later on in the evening; Le Tantra is hip, La Chunga is where you go if you're feeling like mixing with the locals, and Le Baoli is all about the Benjamins – as in, you'll need a lot of them to get through the night.

Nightlife in Monaco

While even Cannes nightlife gives you the option of watching your budget, in Monaco you really don't have that choice. Start off at the relatively the Brasserie de Monaco, which has a decent happy hour and a laid-back vibe. Jimmy'Z is where everyone goes when the night gets started, at an eye-opening 11pm; if you're still on your feet, then it's back to the Living Room, which gets its groove on starting in the wee hours.
