Concierge.com's insider take:
Grand hotel bars don't get more classic than this. Situated between the Carlton's main lobby and restaurant, this Belle Époque space has high ceilings, fluted pillars, and windows that frame the Croisette and its endless parade of strolling couples, families, and Ferraris. Pricey drinks (cocktails are about $27 a pop) are mixed to be stealthy and strong. It is the perfect place to have a civilized drink before heading out for the night.
Open daily 10 am to 2 am during the summer season, 10 am to 1 am during the winter.
