It takes a lot of balls to open up a restaurant during a pandemic, but if anyone can do it, it’s the owners of Le Sunset Nice

When Covid-19 hit France and the lockdowns went into effect in the middle of March 2020, the owners of L’Oméga Club had to temporarily shut their doors to the public.

As time went on and as restrictions started to be eased, the same people associated with the nightclub, used their entrepreneurial skills and opened Sunset Nice in Vieux Nice along the famous Promenade des Anglais.

Although still limited in their capacity of what they wanted to provide customers at first, they followed the Covid-19 guidelines set into place and were allowed to serve a variety of drinks and take away food items out front of their establishment.

Quickly, Sunset Nice became known as a safe gathering place for those both in and out of the LGBTQ community to meet up outside and garner at least a small amount of human interaction during the pandemic.

Becoming increasingly popular while restrictions continued to be lifted. Before long, Sunset Nice was the place to hang out, both day and night, and still is to this today.

Given its prime location, along the Promenade des Anglais on the edge of Vieux Nice, the area is always active with people strolling by or heading to the beach, and with the opening of Sunset Nice, things just became that much more positive and brighter during Covid times.

The bar-brasserie-restaurant offers more than delicious drinks and a wide range of mouth-watering food items at reasonable prices to enjoy. Here, it’s not unusual for a cabaret night to take place, a DJ to spin music alongside the crowd, or for the most memorable occasional outdoor drag show to happen.

You can sense the enthusiasm behind the owners, with a fresh, ever-changing menu to go with the seasons, and a happy, attitude-free environment, Sunset Nice is a welcoming venue for everyone to enjoy.

As a side note: L’Oméga Club was still able to open when the lockdowns got lifted during the pandemic and will be open again late February.
