This bar had really great cocktails and clearly caters to tourists as most people in the bar were not locals and they were blasting the worst American Top 40s playlist. It's like they were daring the Americans to be caught singing along. Still, a good...More

For us this place had the best cocktails in Nice by a long shot. Also some of the best cocktails I've tasted outside of Nice! Slightly premium pricing compared to other bars but it's worth the extra as the cocktails are far better than anything...More

We stumbled upon the Puzzle Bar when heading back to our hotel one night. The bar doesn't open until 7 pm, but when it does it is hopping! They have a great handcrafted cocktail menu - something that is not easy to find in Nice!...More
