Not just any bar, Ni Bar

Heaven knows it's difficult to find a decent bar that's open after 7pm in Monaco, where you can relax and chill out with friends. But things are looking up with the opening of Ni Bar, the stylish new night spot that's part of the Ni Hotel (see our report last week).

Au Royalty under new management

At the end of a busy week, Mr MaBoum and I like nothing better than to enjoy a night out in Monaco. On Friday we decided to have our aperitifs at an old favourite that we reported last year was under new management. Au Royalty is on the corner of rue Princesse Caroline in La Condamine, close to the port.

Ni Hotel opens

A new 3 star hotel has opened close to the Place d'Armes on rue Grimaldi. The small, boutique style Ni Hotel, with just 17 rooms, also boasts a fitness room and sun terrace with sea view, although we've not seen those yet.

It couldn't be more different from the old, traditional Hotel Helvetia, which it replaces. The decor in the lobby has a slightly psychedelic, neon, 60s / 70s theme.

New Ambiance?

It looks like there are changes afoot in the Ambiance Cafe. We were taking a stroll yesterday and passed the restaurant, which is in the Condamine area, close to the Police Station. There's a new sign outside saying Silver Spoon, and some flyers on the wall advertising a 10 euro formula, open from 10.00 to 23.00, seating for more than 100, and a large space for smokers. The cafe has a terrace on the main street and a room just below street level.

Happy New Year from maBoum

Here at maBoum we're looking forward to a great 2009, with lots of restaurants to try, some old and some new. We're going to be making changes to the website, especially when we get feedback from you, so be sure to check back regularly or use our RSS feed.
