Embrace the faux-tropical-island experience at Le Pam Pam, 137 bd. Wilson (www.pampam.fr; tel. 04-93-61-11-05), a time-honored “rhumerie” where guests sip rum and people-watch while reggae beats drift around the bar. More modern is La Réserve, av. Georges Gallice (tel. 04-93-61-20-06), where a younger crowd sips rosé on leopard-print seats.

If you prefer high-energy partying, you’re in the right place. The entire Riviera descends upon Juan-les-Pins’ discos every night in summer, and it’s best to follow the crowds to the latest hotspot. Le Village, 1 bd. de la Pinède (tel. 04-92-93-90-00), is one of the more established clubs and boasts an action-packed dance floor with DJs spinning summer sounds from salsa to soul. The cover charge is usually 16€ including one drink; more for themed evenings. For top jazz, head to Le New Orleans, 9 av. Georges Gallice (tel. 04-93-67-41-71), a buzzing spot with a regular selection of live music.
