The world's hottest beach club chain brings its makeshift cabanas and silver champagne buckets to the Grand Hotel Cannes for a beach club installment of Nikki Beach for the the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. Located directly on the promenade along the la Croisette, the beach club offers an enclosed marquee for evening events as well as an outdoor beach scene with signature white loungers and draped-fabric DJ booth. The crowd varies between beach club addicts who come prepared with baby oil and first-time France'ers looking for their next star spotting.
Look for several host VIP parties during the 2012 season as well as improved DJ events running till 4am at the Nikki Beach nightclub atop the Palais Stephanie Hotel - A JW Marriott property.
Built to accommodate any number of wild parties and private premieres hosted during the film festival, the makeshift beach club offers a casual sushi lounge and outdoor beach patio equally conducive to afternoon socializing and late night partying. Nikki Beach is also one of the few parties in Cannes open entirely to the public â€" or at least those willing to pay its hefty prices.
