ALL THAT GLITTERS: THIRTY-NINE IS MONACO’S FIRST LIFESTYLE CLUB

Toujours quelque chose de nouveau à Monaco! Always something new in Monaco!

F10 Studios Ltd

One of the newest additions to Monégasque nightlife, Thirty-Nine, offers its clientele something quite exceptional, but it does come at a price.

When it comes to luxury accommodations, the Principality of Monaco knows no shortage of glamourous locations, but somehow it has long been missing a private members club similar to the ones that exist in the United Kingdom. With the opening of Thirty-Nine last September, this void has now been filled.

Conceived by ex-rugby player and local resident Ross Beattie, and meticulously designed by the renowned Morpheus London, the elegant space offers all the best in health, beauty, food, and lifestyle over four floors, creating a real social hub “where people can get to know like-minded people”.

Sports fans now have access to an 800m2 state-of-the-art fitness suite that includes altitude training, group cycling, and Pilates studio, and can benefit from individually tailored training programmes.

 

The spa and beauty salon provides high-end personalised care assessments and treatments, thanks to highly skilled hairdressers, doctors, and biologists. For those who want to work in peace, a conference suite is also available, while those who just need to chill out can enjoy the cigar terrace or have a delicious meal prepared by chef Gualterio Marchesi, founder of modern Italian cuisine. And if that was not enough, the beautiful crafted decor, such as the custom-build chandelier above the reception area, pays tribute to the timeless glamour of the French Riviera.

As Beattie himself explains, “you should be able to achieve from the club what you want to achieve. If that’s becoming the healthiest person in the world, looking a certain way, improving times or scores of whatever discipline you’re in, we can do that. But if you just want to relax, socialize and have a meeting somewhere, then you can do that as well”.

Of course, all this does come at a price. For a mere €4,900 per year, you will be able to enjoy this “home away from home” that looks after both the body and the mind of its members.

POUR YOURSELF ANOTHER AU FÛT ET À MESURE IN VIEUX NICE

Article sur un nouveau  concept de bar à Nice pour Riviera Buzz. Article about a new concept bar in Nice for Riviera Buzz.

The concept of self-service bars is steadily gaining traction in France, and one has recently opened in the heart of Vieux Nice – tchin tchin!

Who really wants to wait around for waiter service or spend time queueing at the bar? On a crowded night, it can seem interminable, and in a world where everything is wanted yesterday, the thought of self-service certainly sounds inviting. After all, ATMs have replaced bank tellers and we no longer need to stand in line at the grocery store, we simply use the self-serve check-outs.

So now, Nice’s newest bar, Au Fût et à Mesure, is making the famous credo « on est jamais mieux servi que par soi même » (one is never better served than by oneself) its own by proposing an innovative concept: self-service beer taps.

Located in what was La Trappa in Vieux Nice, the franchise, which was launched in 2008 in Lille, has really caught on in France, having established a presence in many cities, from Paris and Reims, to Montpellier and Toulouse.

The idea is simple: each table has a beer tap and a screen from where you choose your beer. Customers use a prepaid RFID card to pay for their consumption, which can be topped up to any amount and at any stage – there is no minimum.

And if you think this system does away with human interaction and is too impersonal, fear not! The place is all about conviviality. Indeed, every table boasts different selections of beer, so if a you want to try another brew not featured at your own table, just pop across to your neighbouring tables. A great way to make new friends in a relaxed setting, with music playing in the background and your favourite sports on the big screens!

Au fût et à mesure also serves delicatessen as well as the owner’s own cocktails for those who prefer an alternative to beer.

What else do you need to spend a pleasant evening?
