The Buddha Bar style is unbelievably amazing. I’ve been to Buddha Bar in Dubai, in Monte Carlo and Paris. This one is always fabulous for signature cocktails, sushi and music. The sounds created with professionalism made the dinner wonderful. The old place is intimate and...More

The club is awesome and if you enjoy the music selection like we do, you'll love it. The restaurant is a little pricey and crowded and for the money, we think there are better place to eat. But the club is awesome!

nightclubs / lounges (1 Replies)
Hi, I’m looking for upscale nightclubs / lounges to visit on our upcoming trip at the end of February. We are a couple in our early 30s. I’ve read about Buddha Bar but was hoping for a few other ideas. We are staying near les halles but open to any area.

We were told Buddha bar near the Embassies. It was unique experience as they did an Absinthe presentation for us. Another place we hit was a hookah lounge by University Paris Descartes, but I think that has since closed.
Happy hour at Buddha Bar (2 Replies)
Just wanted to know if anyone know when the happy hour is at the Buddha Bar, and other tips for good places to spend a night in Monte Carlo? Want to see people, drink good drinks and dance :)

Response frommonacoCabbie|
Happy hour is from 6pm to 8pm, with about 15% off most drinks. But if you want to see people and dance, there's no point going to Buddha Bar at that time. There are plenty of places to have a good time, try Brasserie de Monaco, Black Legend, Rascasse, all in the port area. Over in the beach area, there's Zelo's and Sass. Then there's the new Jimmy'z underneath the Cafe de Paris.

Buddha Bar type restaurant/bar in Rome? (4 Replies)
We love Buddha Bar music and it is my husband's birthday when we are in Rome on June 22nd and I am looking for a spot that has this type of ambience.

Response frompeacethroughtravel2|
thank you. The website does not seem to work. We are looking for the music first of all- what have you heard about Coconuts in Rimini? Any electronic new age/ ethnic music in Rome is what we want.
