The Fitzgerald Bar at the Hôtel Belles Rives not only holds a place in history but also in our hearts. This luxury hotel in Cap d’Antibes is one of our most used venues for weddings along the Riviera because it offers so much that couples want for the big day. The hotel itself is a piece of history. It was the first hotel on the shore of the Cote d’Azur and has welcomed the world’s elite ever since. The views are amazing, the rooms for the guests are designed with an art deco style, and the venue has space for everything all in one place – the ceremony on the terrace, cocktail hour by the water, and the dinner under the covered terrace on the edge of the water. A not-so-hidden gem of this venue is the Fitzgerald bar. Named after F. Scott Fitzgerald, who frequented the hotel and wrote novels like The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night. The bar really embodies his spirit and grandeur.
The atmosphere is cozy and luxurious. The views are out of this world and the cocktails are delicious. The entire space is thoughtfully decorated with furniture with different textures and fabrics that all have their own personality yet seem to match perfectly. True to the Art Deco spirit, the decor has been meticulously researched. The paintings hung and crafted directly on the wall are all beautiful and created specifically for the hotel.
The Fitzgerald Bar is above all a place that offers an authentic and inimitable experience for visitors from all over the world. This unique bar is a part of the Cafés Historiques et Patrimoniaux d’Europe, a very exclusive group of historic cafés in Europe. The breathtaking views from the terrace will stop you in your tracks and watching the sun set into the water is magical. In the evenings, a certain elegance takes hold as the melody of the piano fills the room. The distinguished atmosphere will make you feel powerful and take you back to a time when modern troubles didn’t touch us.
This space in the Hotel Belles Rives is perfect for welcome cocktails, pre wedding parties, or just a meeting space for you and your guests during your wedding week stay. We would love to share more information and inspiration from this venue – contact us for all the details!
