by the Team with Mickaël Mugnaini
THE ASTON LA SCALA HOTEL NICE
An elegant facade overlooking the Paillon Promenade, the Old Nice, and an azure sky with a 360° view of the hills and the Mediterranean: you have arrived at Hotel Aston La Scala. Enjoying an outstanding location, the hotel is near the Promenade des Anglais and its beaches, the flower market, Cours Saleya and Place Masséna and only 30km from Cannes and 20km from Monaco.
THE MOON BAR
Suspended somewhere between the sky and the sea, the roof-terrace at the Aston La Scala Hotel is home to the Moon Bar. The three things the Moon Bar’s Terrace promises are sunshine, a light cuisine and relaxation. Experience the calm of an exclusive terrace on the eighth floor of the Hotel, either shaded by palm trees or in the sunshine, decorated with jardinières of aromatic plants. The terrace, the swimming pool and the bar are open 7/7, 10am to 5pm from June to the end of September and more, depending from the weather that in Nice offers 300 days of sunshine a year.
The swimming pool and solarium strewn with sun loungers are exclusively reserved for Hotel Guests, to ensure tranquillity. In this way the privacy of the place is preserved. A lot of renovation work was carried out this winter on the 7th and 8th floors of the Hotel to make sure this magical venue opened again. The Moon Bar becomes a lounge bar with panoramic view from 6pm to midnight. Accompany your cocktails with sharing platters and tapas made by our Chef, Victor Marion.
The bar team is at your disposition for all your customized requests, with a rich election of Wines, Champagnes & Sparkling Wines, Aperitifs, Beers, Cold drinks, Hot drinks, the Aston and the classic Cocktails with and without alcohol, Waters, Spirits, Brandy& Liqueurs, Whiskey&Scotch, and the Tapas to share (for two): i.e. Charcuterie platter consists in an assortment of Iberian charcuterie, truffle-infused ham, salami and condiments; of course, we recommend the French cheese platter of Beaufort, marinated chèvre, fourme d’Ambert, Comté, dried fruits and condiments.
