Festooned with antique bikes, old lanterns and musical instruments, this kooky bar is a fun and friendly place to drink. The cocktail list is lengthy, the vibe is relaxed and the music is upbeat yet sociable. There are also free bar snacks for patrons; little wonder Brown Sugar is so popular with the locals.
Cannes has a lively nightlife that usually spills into the following morning. It’s hardly Ibiza, but the town has a plethora of pubs, bars and clubs, ranging from swanky celebrity hangouts to backpacker boozers dedicated to the time-honoured tradition of getting their punters plastered.
If you’re in the mood for love, the cobbled alleys of Le Suquet are perfect for a romantic drink. If you fancy something a bit livelier, head to rue des Frères Pradignac and the surrounding streets, which are peppered with pumping bars. High rollers and gamblers gravitate towards La Croisette’s more exclusive establishments.
Culturally, Cannes plays host to a variety of events throughout the year, most famously the International Film Festival. For entertainment and cultural listings visit www.cannes.com and for film festival tickets contact the Palais des Festivals (www.palaisdesfestivals.com).
