Come night time the cool cats of Nice slink down to the funky Smarties bar. This trendy retro lounge allows you to shake to the music, while you sip on a swanky cocktail until late at night.
Just down the road from the Saint Roch Hospital, Smarties may seem a little out of the way but it is easy enough to find. Because of this it makes it less of a tourist hang out and more like the real French retro bar experience.
Open from 17h00 to 00h30 Tuesday to Sunday, Smarties isn't a massively late night establishment but rather somewhere to go earlier in the evening before hitting a club later on if it takes your fancy, although it doesn't get busier until later on.
Entrance is free.
Their website is still in the early stages and all in French but you can become a friend of Smarties on Facebook and myspace.
