We chanced upon Wayne's Bar (with a global world logo, there's no mistaking its real reference to Wayne's World) in the Old City -- Vielle Ville -- of Nice, and found a tiny old (low ceiling, narrow room, old plaster walls) pub with a tiny stage and a surprisingly good band covering 90's anglo rock classics. The 18-year-olds crowd in promptly at 10:30 when the band starts and the drink prices double and the crowding is claustrophobic but friendly -- a mosh pit that the waiters encourage. You know it's France when the band members quaff not a water bottle but a green wine bottle. The microphone was mercifully low, thus reducing the chance that anyone would mistake the singer for a real Englishman, but the band was surprisingly good at covering Anglo rock hits, and the audience responds enthusiastically. Quite an exciting cultural experience. The Guinness on tap is a bit cool, and the Grolsch a bit bitter, but the overall atmosphere overcomes any minor objections to taste -- you have, by definition, had a Good Time.

Great spot for a bit of comfort food. Service was good, beer selection was excellent and we found the food to be quite good too.

This bar employs all English speaking staff and shows a great varity of sport. The food is good and always comes out quickly. The drinks are a little pricey, but that is to be expected in the Old Town. Inside, there is little phone reception, especially in the pit, so if you want to speak on your phone, you have to go outside. This is great for getting those annoying, loud-speaking phone-holics out of the bar. The toilets are clean but a little old and the staircase leading to them is quite steep and narrow.
