Le Bar Americain is such a little gem!! It's located inside the beautiful Hotel de Paris and it's a fantastic place to have drinks!!

The drinks, ambiance and service are all outstanding!! Just thinking about sipping fancy champagne at Le Bar Americain makes me want to hurry right back to Monte Carlo!! I can't wait to go back!!

Highly Recommended!!

My wife, her parents, our kid and myself spent an evening having dinner with 2 bottles of champagne Moët & Chandon in American Bar of Hôtel de Paris. Normally, we are regular clients of this magnificent place, but this year, we prefered to stay in Fairmont Monte-Carlo instead.
However, we booked a table for the 5 of us and arrived at around 19:00 local time. Unfortunately, the food service inside American Bar was only starting from 22:00, which we probably forgot or did not remember... Nevertheless, we were enjoying our first bottle of champagne (115 Euro) and we tried the very little canapés (only 6 pieces for 36 Euro !!!) on two occasions in order for us to have something to eat while drinking our champagne. Later on, we ordered our second bottle of champagne, with safran risotto, penne al arabiata. We were very satisfied with the quality of the service provided and by the good looking of all waiter/waitress of the bar. Only good looking staff are working there it seems, which give a higher class dimension in the quality and luxury of the place. Food taste was good, but not exceptional this time, probably not salty/tasty enough for me.
Well, we had the chance also to have live music from a jazz singer man for a while and we could really enjoy fully our evening, before to proceed to Monte-Carlo Casino to loose some money, as Casino always wins at the end of the day...
We will definitively come back to this great American Bar of Hôtel de Paris, a great place to be if you want to feel treated like a VIP and to enjoy luxury life of Monaco with great clients all around you.
I'll soon add some photos to my review and HD video on my www.youtube.com channel, subject being : "otterboris", so enjoy watching them and see you there next year !

Le Bar Americain is a special occasion type place-only the very wealthy could afford to make an evening of it there. There were plenty of patrons of that type in the bar the night we went--bottles of vintage champagne were going off everywhere! We tried the champagne based mojito--probably makes a self respecting Frenchman roll over in his grave, but it works! The drink came in a long glass which looked like it had a mint plant sprouting from it, and it tasted great. The drink cost of 26 euro ( each) was made much more palatable by the excellent bar snacks that were provided--generous in quantity and flavour. Our night was made when the band leader asked us to nominate their first number for the night, and then dedicated the song to us-- a bit of fun and great audience engagement by the band( who were terrific by the way). All up, a great experience, and one you should try to tick off your list whilst in Monte Carlo

My favorite place in Monaco, so I come here everyday for aperitif and after dinner drinks and dancing. Massimo who runs this place is professional, friendly and always takes care of us to make sure we get best seats. And so is the rest of the staff always happy and you can tell they enjoy they work they greet you every day with big smile. Simply love this place and if you are visiting Monaco its must place to visit.

Le Bar Americain is a great place to stop for some top-drawer pampering along the Mediterrean coast. High above the sea, it is close neighbors with Hermes, Valentino, and Gucci, and within shouting distance of the famous Opera and Monte Carlo Casino of James Bond fame. I actually visited in winter of 2011, and the rich, elegant aesthetic of the interior, was as beautiful is the view of the Opera across the street. It was a friendly crowd at the bar (mostly Englishmen), and the hospitable service and good food made for a great place to unwind after an afternoon at the Christmas carnival on the harbor. If you're in good shape, it's a short, but rather steep uphill walk from the train station, so don't waste your money on a cab. It seems so appropriate that Le Bar Americain is located just off John F. Kennedy Avenue. Who says the French don't like Americans???
