Everything you need to know about the Bar Sauvage experience at Maona

After the hotly anticipated relaunch of Monaco’s “deliciously retro” Maona last month, the legendary bar and restaurant is extending its summer season into October with a highly exclusive Bar Sauvage experience. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer reopened an icon of the 1960s and 70s in July with the unveiling of a modern day Maona on the Avenue Princesse Grace in the nightlife hotspot neighbourhood of Larvotto.  

Today’s version blends elements of the original heyday of the entirely open-air venue with all the trappings a 2023 crowd expects from such an establishment to offer everything from classic cabaret to top notch DJ sets, and from expertly made vintage cocktails to a highly luxurious menu dipping in caviar and equally fine ingredients.

And that’s not forgetting the Tam Tam Room, which is located in the upstairs section of Maona and is reserved exclusively for up to 15 VIPs, who can enjoy all the quintessential Maona “euphoria”, but in a secluded and utterly serene space.

All of this is set to be elevated even more with the introduction of the Bar Sauvage experience from 26th August to 3rd October.  

Designed as a prelude to dinner or as the perfect way to cap off an evening out in Monaco, the venue’s Bar Sauvage is embracing the very best of the 1960s party ethos.

From 7pm to 9pm, elegant music meets curated cuisine with the Piano Bar Aperitivo portion of the night. Live performances by pianist Yari will be complemented by drinks crafted by Maona’s magician-like mixologists and a refined take on a regional specialty – panisse fries – for a sophisticated start to the night. 

The entertainment continues after dinner too with a special drinks menu featuring an excellent spirits and champagne selection to share between friends.  

For a place to kickstart an exceptional night out or as a place to wind down and reminisce, Maona hits all the right notes.

Maona’s Bar Sauvage is open from 7pm until 2am in August, and thereafter 1am. Reservations are a must as it’s fairly common for all seats to sell out, even before the introduction of the Bar Sauvage experience.
