Nightlife in Monaco

Monaco is not a particularly vibrant place for night owls. Restaurants shut quite early in comparison to European capitals and there are only a few night clubs, all housed in the city's James Bond-esque casinos. Jimmy Z's, located in the Sporting Club is a Monte Carlo establishment, where rich young things flock to the dance floor in designer heels. The world-famous Monte Carlo Casino is another grand complex worth visiting, if not for a drink and dance, then just to look at. Casinos put on nightly shows, cabarets and the like - all thoroughly entertaining, if a tad OTT.
