Monaco for New Years Eve 2012 & New Years Day

My gf and I are going to Monaco for NYE this year. We managed to get an amazing deal and wanted something different to London & Australia this year. Does anybody know what the best bars/clubs/restaurants for 25-30yo to be in for NYE are? I have looked all over the internet and most of the information only seems relevant to 2010 NYE.

Are there any parties/celebrations on New Years Day? Or is there anything going on close by say in Nice, Cannes or St Tropez?

Any help would be appreciated :)

The best bar in Monaco is Sass Cafe (www.sasscafe.com). It has the most beautiful atmosphere and life piano. The restaurant with the most beautiful view is Vista Palace (http://www.vistapalace.com)

You can go and Jimmy's (http://fr.jimmyzmontecarlo.com) .. but it's a place more for tourists :) ..

In Cannes the best is Baoli Club (http://www.lebaoli.com).

The bars and restaurants haven't yet published their end of year party schedules. There are plenty of places tho', especially round the harbour area, with Brasserie de Monaco, Black Legend, and a free party in the Christmas village.

Hello,

as for Monaco, Sass is a classic, but is small and gets crowded. The clientele can also be much older than the 25-30yr range you've mentionned.

Black Legend is definitely one of the cool places right now, and in my opinion, fits perfectly into what you might be looking for.

Buddha Bar might be similar in scope and clientele (but does not extend the evening like a real nightclub), so you would then want to cross the street into Jimmy'z (Jimmy'z is moving into a new location for the winter - close to the Casino). I still believe that it is better to experience the real Jimmy'z, in its summer location..

As for St Tropez, some places are typically open, but the entire village is pretty empty, so I do not recommend it..

Cannes: Baoli (the Cannes equivalent of Black Legend)

Many thanks for all your responses. It looks like we should go to either Black Legend or Jimmy'z. Do you think it is best to book a table at a restaurant or stay outside around the Casino for the New Year Countdown?

Do clubs like Black Legend, Jimmy'z or other cocktail bars host new year's day parties?
