Pétanque, cocktails and pissaladière just like in Nice

Petanque meridien etoile

If you don’t have time to go to Nice, it’s Nice that will come to you.

Make a beeline for porte Maillot to enjoy an evening of pétanque, pissaladière and cocktails in a provencal patio.

The pétanque playing field, the parasols, the unfolded blue deck chairs, are all ready to welcome you starting at 5pm for a wonderful laid back happy hour. Not surprising: it’s in the heavenly court yard of the Méridien Etoile that it’s happening in partnership with the Méridien Nice...

On the program? Sun filled cocktails, antipasti (marinated anchovies, pissaladière, pain bagnat) concocted specially by the chef of the Nice hotel with the playlist of the Nouvelle Vague group as background music.

Good to know: Book your pétanque game ahead of time on 01 40 68 30 42.

We love: the combo cocktail + espadrilles. For 35€, you get a cocktail à base de champagne and a pair of shoes labeled 1789 CALA.


Every evening from 5pm to 10:30pm. Cocktails starting at 17€, antipasti starting at 9€.

Also discover Bagnard, the new restaurant of chef Yoni Saada.
