Famous Hotel Piano Bar

I recently had a morning coffee on the terrace of the Palais Mediterranée, a well-known hotel on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.  It was served from the piano bar, called “le 3eme” – aptly named since it’s situated on the 3rd floor of the hotel.  This small, intimate-feeling bar/lounge is cozy and colorful, with rich velvet fabrics and luscious sofas in deep purples and reds. I felt transformed to the time where a formal salon welcomed guests, in a sort of den-like setting.

Live music at “le 3eme” is on Thurday, Friday, and Saturday evenings – so, step into a romantic French parlor-type ambiance and listen to the music, oh, oh, oh…..listen to the music !

  1. Enjoyed the photos of this great art-deco Nice landmark. I was once told that this Palais was built or at least partially financed by a American heiress from the Gould family. However, I cannot seem to confirm this fact in recent Google searches.

    Eeeeegads!!! Purple is my favorite color, but that’s a little over the top, non? Maybe that explains my mother’s interesting taste in colors…..

  3. It certain is eccletic, like something out of the 1900’s!!

    I used to play and sing in piano bars… never in France, though! I’d love to visit this place (coffee date, Kim??).

  5. Impressive, as I can’t sing well! Yep – coffee/wine/or champagne date avec plaisir!
