Arrogant waitress who denied my friend a glass of tap water so we where a party of 10 people who consumed drinks. A soft drink costs ridiculous 10 Euros. The DJ was utter crap and managed to kill every song. A simple iTunes playlist would have done a much better job. If I would not have had to kill time... More

One of my favourite bars in Monaco to go out. The finger food is good and fresh. The staff is very friendly from the valet to the barmaids. Good music, good people shame it closes a bit early.

So rude are the people here. Drinks were warm when they arrived. Much rather go to jacks or brasserie

My wife and myself had just had dinner at the Budda Bar and were walking home to Monaco Ville when the heavens opened. So we made a dash to the Before where we had been a few times before. The security guy would not let us in, I don't know if it was because we were wet or if the... More

At Before you can sit at a table outside or inside, just have drinks or food and drinks, The decor is refined with book shelves and a big bar... More

Unfortunately someone has hired dumb staff to represent the place at the front of the house ! Horrible attitude leading to the fact that i will not be returning there even though have visited many times before and live in Monaco... apparently only "usuals" are let in?!! Very disappointed to be told the place is too full to accommodate 2... More

Since its opening the before has been the hot spot of Monaco for after works drinks and pre disco nights. Cocktails are good and bottle are not so expensive. Much better to buy a bottle than several cocktails. The place is not pretentious but the people is nice and not too young. Following the previous comment I saw many times... More
