On a rainy day recently in Nice, we walked along the Promenade des Anglais to the famous Hotel Negresco (where in the old days, people like Elizabeth Taylor stayed). We had heard there was a carousel in one restaurant, and a spectacular chandeler in another room. Walking into the intimidating lobby, we saw a bar to the right, and thought we could get a drink there. The Relais Bar turns out to be very famous with wood panelling from 1913, and a tapestry from 1683. It reminded me of the Plaza in its best days. My husband asked if they served food, and we were told there was a limited menu. He chose the club sandwich, and I had a "prawn salad." Both were fine, but the bill including our drinks - a beer and a Diet Coke - was 90 Euros. Apparently, if you can find the carousel, you can buy an almost regularly-priced coffee. I don't know if we'd do it again, but it was a nice experience.
