On a lower level of the Hôtel Byblos’ grounds, Les Caves du Roy, 20 av. Paul-Signac (www.lescavesduroy.com; tel. 04-94-56-68-00), is the most self-consciously chic nightclub in St-Tropez. Entrance is free, but drink prices are eye-wateringly high. It’s open from 11:30pm until dawn Fridays and Saturdays from Easter to June, nightly from June through August, and Fridays and Saturdays from September to early October. The legendary venue Le Papagayo—a hotspot for international A-listers since the 1960s—not long ago transformed into Gaïo, 4 av. du 11 Novembre 1918 (www.gaio.club; tel. 04-94-97-89-98). A combination restaurant and club with an Asian-inspired menu and similar decor, it remains as celebrity-studded as ever, though somehow has a less pretentious atmosphere.

Tsar Folie's, 9 allée du Quai de l’Epi, and Le Pigeonnier, 19 rue de la Ponche (tel. 06-33-58-92-45), rock, roll, and welcome a mostly LGBTQ crowd between 20 and 50. L’Esquinade, 2 rue de Four (tel. 04-94-56-26-31), equally gay-friendly, is the habitual sweaty follow-up club.

Below the Hôtel Sube in the port, Café de Paris (www.cafedeparis.fr; tel. 04-94-97-00-56), is one of the most popular—and friendly—hangouts in town. It has 1900s-style globe lights, masses of artificial flowers, and a long zinc bar. Café Sénéquier, quai Jean Jaurès (www.senequier.com; tel. 04-94-97-20-20), is historic, venerable, snobbish by day, and off-puttingly stylish by night.

There are also popular darties (day parties, see above) at many of the resorts and beach clubs, so keep an eye and ear out for those.
