Gypset guide to Monaco

Where to go and what to wear for a short break in Monaco?

Monaco (Monte Carlo) 🥂🍾

Each trip to Monaco brings the memories from many years back, when I used to live there. Few things have changed since, but the core still stands.

  • super short skirts - the definition of short is different in MC
  • age and looks gap in a couple - 60 years old not that great looking men with gorgeous 30 years old women 
  • everyone is trying to sell you something  

They build new hotels and restaurants every year. However, our favourites would still be the same.

Restaurants:



Maya Bay - best ever Thai and Japanese in Monaco. Food is to die for in a beautiful setting.

Beef Bar - best meat in Fontvielle with great ambience 

Cipriani - the place to see and be seen. Food is average but the scene is worth going 

Bars and clubs:

Sass cafe - if you feel like a late cup 

Bar American - if you're a lonely gentleman 

Bagatelle - if you know bouncers from numetous bagatelles all over the world 

Twiga - to go after all above 

Lunch on the beach:

Monte Carlo beach club - Brasserie Le deck is the best choice for Sunday brunch

Anjuna beach - Ibiza style restaurant with a small beach 

Mala beach - the only decent beach around MC with good music and food 

Paloma - great for fish, but only before 2pm, after which you're in the shadow 

Beach:


Go somewhere else! 

What to wear:

As mentioned above, not much has changed in the principality. Sparkles, high heels and body con rule the scene. To stand out from see through divas and bring some bohemian look into town, we suggest you to dress down and try lose fits to show your personality rather than your body (if you're reading our blog, we know you're in amazing form anyway 😉). You can still play with colours! It's summer, for God's sake!
