Where to Watch the World Cup

What’s the main topic of conversation in Nice these days? Yes, you guessed it, it seems that everyone in Nice is gripped by World Cup fever! With Nice’s large international community, it’s not surprising that every evening pubs and bars are full to the brim with enthusiastic fans cheering their country on. Afterwards, there’s no better excuse to go out and celebrate (or commiserate) with a drink or three…Nice Matin offers a round-up of the best bars and restaurants to watch the World Cup…even if football’s not your thing, it’s worth going along just to soak up the electric atmosphere.



In Nice, you’re spoilt for choice! From the Old Town to Place Garibaldi to the port, the opportunities are endless; almost every bar and restaurant sports a screen. However, the 2 that come out top are…
