The Official Ad Age Guide to Cannes


La Croisette, 42 43 BD
You’re going to need lots of A) ice cold beverages and B)
caffeine. Armani Caffè, inside the namesake retailer, has the best
iced coffee in Cannes. 


24 Rue Latour-Mauborg
Need a break from the Gutter Bar? La Chunga is right next door! You
can often score a seat and spontaneous dance parties have been
known to break out. Plus it’s a front row seat to the Gutter’s


2 Rond-Point Duboys D’Angers
Infrequently open and frequently messy, this record store is a gem.
The owner is deeply knowledgable mais il ne parle pas anglais.
Bring some vinyl home as a souvenir!

En Sortant
de l’École

(Leaving School)
18 Rue Notre Dame
Feel guilty for missing Father’s Day? This toy store is packed
with exquisite, expensive trinkets (that your kids might not love
as much as you do). 


7 Place de l’Etang
The best place to play pétanque like (and possibly even with) a

du Cap-Eden-Roc

167-165 Boulevard J. F.  Kennedy, Antibes
This resort dates to 1887 and has hosted everyone from Winston
Churchill to Liz Taylor. Bring mosquito repellent. And a swimsuit
for the incredible infinity pool. Also cash. Lots and lots of

Brouette de Grand Mère

9 Bis Rue d’Oran
The name of this rustic Russian family-style restaurant translates
to “grandma’s wheelbarrow.” When you’re sick of rosé
you’ll appreciate the vodka and smoked fish.

Colombe d’Or

Place du Général de Gaulle Saint-Paul-de-Vence
Tucked in the hills above Cannes, this hotel and bistro was a
favorite haunt of the twentieth century’s greatest artists.
Picasso, Matisse, Chagall all frequented—and their work hangs on
the walls.

Île Sainte-Marguerite
It’s a 10-minute boat ride to this lively restaurant on an island
cove. Worth getting seasick for.


6 Rue Florian
Among our favorite Italian restaurants in the city, situated in an
old-world cobblestoned alley. Go al fresco.

Grand Hotel

45 Boulevard de la Croissette
The place to be on Wednesday night for Ad Age’s annual lawn

Murs Peints

Giant movie-themed murals adorn walls all over the city’s
surrounding area. Look out for a nine-story-tall Marilyn Monroe,
Harold Lloyd dangling from a clock and famous movie voitures.

Face du 26 Boulevard du Midi Jean Hibert
Take a breather, catch an exceptional sunset and drink a glass of
rosé at this beach.


6 Rue due Marché Forville
Stop by this sprawling indoor farmer’s market for some actual
fresh produce and maybe some flowers for your, er, client.

9 Rue du Maréchal Foch
As soon as you arrive, load up on water (and wine) and snacks (and
snacks) to keep at home because you will never be hydrated

Old Town/Le Suquet

1 Petite Rue Sant-Antoine
Founded as a Roman camp, this is the original site of the city.
Wearing heels? You may want to bring flip-flops.

‘n Shake

3 Place du Général de Gaulle
Quite possibly an epic troll, this comparatively opulent
outcropping of the American roadside chain is always crowded.
Ostentatious owner Sardar Biglari is proud enough to put his
signature on the wall.
