Cannes' Nightlife: Party on the French Riviera!
Le Sparkling for ULocated in the “Carré d’Or,” a short walk from the Croisette and the Palace of Festivals of Cannes, the Sparkling has taken up residence on the rue des Frères Pradignac. This new concept-restaurant is very trendily decorated and offers a summer menu filled with the colors of the Mediterranean (tapas, grilled tuna) with a few Asian additions (dimsum, etc.). Chef Gilles Calvo has designed his menu around fresh in-season products, making for gay, colorful, and very appetizing plates. The lunch menu from €13.50 offers a choice between pastries or salad of the day, plus coffee. The restaurant welcomes you from noon – 12:30 am in its dining room or in its outdoor areas for lunch, dinner, or a small snack. On the first floor, the terrace-patio under an open sky, with a white décor lit up by acid-drop cushions, is a wonderful surprise that should quickly become the rendez-vous spot of choice for shoppers and fashionistas who frequent the Carré d’Or and the rue d’Antibes. Le Sparkling is also a great place for a drink or cocktail at the club or on the “For You” dance floor, where you can listen to music from the resident DJ (from 6:00 pm – 2:30 am). Weekends and holidays, brunch (€22-€26) is served from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
