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

Very disappointed to be told the place is too full to accommodate 2... More

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

very unpleasant experience... when a "door staff" have ego issues and feel they can make girls stand around and wait till they feel the place is spacious enough for you to go spend money!
