Vieux Nice, known for its charming shops, markets, and fabulous restaurants, just got even livelier with the addition of two new gay bars.
Sitting on the edge of Place Rossetti, the owners of the Rainbow Power Group, along with their friend, the DJ Drag Star Mika have recently opened up Le Bar B*tch and Le Bar Butch directly across from each other at 1 and 2, rue Rossetti.
On one side of the street you have Le Bar Butch, meant to attract the meatier, more leather-and-jeans type of crowd, a place where the men like their drinks strong, and their men even stronger!
Across the way (as if you could miss it) is Le Bar B*tch, here you never know what to expect. This place could be considered fashionista central, where the drinks are a touch more colourful and so are the crowds.
Having both establishments across from each other is like having the best of both worlds.
Afternoons at Le Bar B*tch and Le Bar Butch are a perfect time to relax with a drink and a bite to eat on one of the terraces while you watch the world go by. And if you want to meet the locals, this is also turning out to be the place everyone is going for an after work apéro.
During the evening a whole new vibe takes over, as now that both businesses have settled in nicely, a number of themed events take place during the week.
After all, the owners are known on the French Riviera for their abilities of putting on a party, so before you know it you could be in the midst of an impromptu drag show with rue Rossetti becoming a runaway full of crazy antics, all leading to a night of fun.
Open every day of the week from 2pm until 12:30am, no matter which bar you choose to hang out at, both establishments are well stocked and the friendly, attentive staff flow seamlessly between the spaces keeping the show on the go, while welcoming anyone who wants to stop by.
