The loft bar is a New York style lounge bar and before 11pm you can have a nice meal which is Asian spicy style of fish and or noodles.After 11pm the bar and sofas fill right up and the dance floor is heaving with party goers.This is a very trendy and popular bar and is well worth going to.
Dress Code: Dress trendy and smart.
Be warned that during the winter season when there are no specific events in Cannes, the town is very very quiet in the evenings. You've got the feeling of a ghost town when you're walking at night and the nightlife is pretty hard to come by.
During the peak season, however, it's overcrowded.
During the Cannes Film Festival, the whole city comes alive with a certain party atmosphere......movie stars and stargazers fill the streets trying to see and be seen. The crowds trickle in and out of the posh hotels along the Boulevard De La Croisette trying to get into the next party! After people watching at an outdoor cafe outside of the Palais des Festivals (where the main show screenings took place), my friends and I made our way inside the exclusive nightclub at the Martinez Hotel.
They had private parties and fashion shows taking place inside. The dance floor was filled with gorgeous models), film and fashion execs......all bumping and grinding to the sounds of American hip hop. Later the music turned into more high energy Euro house.
There is no cover charge, but you end up really paying for it with your drinks. A 1/2 liter of Absolut vodka will run you about $120 USD!! (What is it in the states, like $15.99 at Costco??) My friends and I didn't find out until we got inside that they can't even sell you a glass of wine or a pint of beer. You have to buy the WHOLE bottle!!
It was worth it in the end........if you're lucky, you can make friends who invite you 'one step up' to the VIP lounge and indulge you with bottles of Cristal champagne!
The Europeans love to party!
The atmosphere in the Martinez Hotel was definitely an upscale, high energy, party atmosphere. The club closes at 6am, and the party crowd retreats to their expensive hotel suites or their room on the yacht that's docked in the bay. Ironically, I didn't get that sense of a 'snobbish' crowd that you tend to feel when you go to these types of places. They were either high on life (or high on something else!), but everyone was pretty friendly.
The key thing is to mingle and meet new people who have connections to get you into the next hot party!
Dress Code: Dress code at these places is always 'dress to impress
In the evening the beach of the Noga Hilton becomes a wonderful bar, lounge with great cocktails.
Dress Code: casual...as you wish
The Staff is very friendly , young, energetic and engaging. I got in top of the bar and broke it down to the last compound !
Dress Code: Casual dress code. Latex pants for me! : )
