2 le Vins

The Warner Cafe has occupied both sides of rue Hélène Vagliano for a long time and is a popular place to have your coffee in the morning as well as a bite at lunch time. After a remodelling they have now open ” 2 le Vins”, which is also suited for an evening apero with a menu of snacks. Apero&Tiff who rarely, if maybe never, miss a chance to have a little drink, were therefore excited to try out the updated venue to check if the service was as pleasing as it was during a coffee break. ”It sure is …

Sugar Sweet Service

Standing outside Brown Sugar, Apero was feeling hesitant, as if standing in front of a roulette table with only one chip. Brown Sugar seems to be successful enough that it’s been among the many restaurant and bars in Le Carre d’Or as long as the cold war. But could this obviously touristic place be any good? But when he saw the big platters of nibbles being carried out, he caved in and asked for a table for himself and Tiff. The friendly girl greeting them, said the last table outside was reserved, but they where welcome to a first drink …

An ”Italian” without identity

Cannes night life is found on Rue Commandant André and surrounding little streets. The district, between La Croisette and the Rue d’Antibes, is known as the Carré d’Or (Golden Square). Here you can tootle from restaurant to bar to club and barely notice you’ve moved. This early evening it was the bar Posto Pubblico, situated in a small side street, that got Apero&Tiffs attention with its terrace already buzzing with laughter and chatter among people shuffling down big glasses of wine. ”This looks like a popular place” said Tiff. ” Lets’ spend an Italian style evening” The owner, not Italian …

Bright but right! ‘Le Bivouac’

The “Le Bivouac” is a newly opened wine bar situated in a small street close to the place du Général-de-Gaulle. The big windows towards the street gives a good view in to the modern and high end decorated lounge bar, making it a good choice for an after work drink. The owners, both of them named Laurent, were very friendly and welcoming when Apero&Tiff arrived and guiding them to a table close to the bar. ” Very comfortable seating ” said Tiff, sinking down into the soft big chair. ” There is a serious risk of falling asleep here ”. ” Don’t …

Great Service at Bambou Cafe

Tiff was waiting impatiently outside the newly renovated Bambou Café when Apero arrived 12 minutes after scheduled this evening. Already half finished with a glass of champagne and the snacks on the table as her only company. “You´re late” she said in a sarcastic voice. “Well, this place is almost in Italy” snaps Apero back, referring to the location high at the end of rue d´Antibes. Bambou Café re-opened just weeks ago after being closed for over a month to do a complete “make over”. And it was about time. Now it has gone from a slightly tired café to …

Le Bar á Vin

Amazing ambiance Location is usually everything but “Le Bar á Vin”– tucked in a small lane, close to the Gambetta Market, is away from the main buzz and therefore not easy to find for tourists. That’s why it’s mostly filled with regulars, enjoying the aperos from an impressive list of over 100 different wines, all of them served by the glass. In fact the list was so long that Apero was struggling to decide, using more time reading the big board on the wall then it actually took to drink the white Riesling he ended up with. “This is immensely …

Size matters – Byron Lounge Bar and Restaurant

In the heart of Cannes, the Byron lounge bar and restaurant has gained an identity. Here one can have a drink, snack, dinner, see sports – even dance when the DJ is playing in the evening. Situated in the middle of rue Felix Faure among lots of restaurants, this place is perfect for people watching. Inside Byron you find yourself in a place with soft hues of raw wood with furniture in warm tones allied with carvings of glasses and mirrors, but it is the sign outside that gets Apero & Tiff´s attention this evening. ”Happy Hour with free tapas! …

A nice Italian

A nice Italian “I love this place already” says Tiff, enthusiastic when a nice man at the door welcomes them with “Buona sera” and a big smile. “Well, lets not get all carried away here now. We have not even ordered yet!” replies Apero. We are in France after all and the waiters are probably not even from Italy. But after being shown to the table inside, even Apero started to feel a little in love. First is the celing. The crazy mix of decor hanging down is a display worth the visit in itself. In fact the whole interior …
