We found this bar on our first trip to Nice and stopped there a few times. The beer was good and the outdoor seating was perfect for people watching. Beware of at least one of the waiters…I personally saw him trying to get customers to...leave their change (when they had paid in cash) for him as a tip. I discredit him and American tourists who don’t know that you DO NOT TIP WAITSTAFF IN EUROPE unless you get some over-the-top outstanding service. I’m talking like fitting you into a place that’s full and you don’t have a reservation. It’s not like the US where tips are expected as waitstaff is paid a lower wage, anticipating tips to make up the difference. This waiter should not have been expecting tips nor should he be asking for them. Our waiter was fine. Other than this I’d go back to this bar (we probably will at least once before we leave).More

Hadn't been here for 8 months due to travel lockdowns. I was here with some of my domestic staff. Once again we had a most enjoyable evening. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Yan, Nicholas, Eric, Jerome, Eddie, Christo, and Dominique were in great...form and there was plenty of banter. If you in Nice you must visit this lovely bar in the Old Town.More

We’ve been going to les Distilleries for a few years now whenever on holiday in the area. We enjoy the many cocktails mixed by very fast and professional bar tenders, in fact our bar tender last night was alone behind the bar and was juggling...with 4 different drinks simultaneously. This has become our must night out spot whenever having a night out in Nice. I recommend the Ti Punch if you feel in a party mood.More

Nice and friendly bar, dog friendly and a great ambience. Happy hour started at 18:30 so reduced price drinks then if you so desire. The house wine was good and they have Belgian beers - what more could you want?! Lots of seating inside and...out and right in the heart of the old town. A couple of nice restaurants around too so you can make an evening of it.More

A great french pub with a wide range of beers on tap. We managed to finally find a locally created beer which was yum! A must visit when in Nice.

An atmospheric experience !! Busy, bustling and vibrant. We chose to sit outside on the street - a great decision to enjoy the ebb and flow of the old town. We visited three times and it was on all three occasions a genuine treat -...make an effort and visit. Recommended.More

Just happened to find this bar whilst wandering through Nice Old Town and looking for somewhere to shelter from the torrential rain! An unusual interior and we sat upstairs on a small balcony where you could watch the comings and goings of everyday French life....We ordered two glasses of Beaujolais Nouveau and was surprised to find ourselves sitting there for well over an hour! So good, we went back again in the evening after dinner and enjoyed our second visit just as much!More
