The Sea Lounge Monte-Carlo is opening on 16 May for the 2012 season and is making a comeback in true lounge spirit. Nestled in the beautiful setting of the Monte Carlo Beach, this chic, glamorous jewel in the crown of the Monte-Carlo SBM will be the perfect backdrop for drinks and convivial, carefree evenings all summer long.
Decked out in black and white crushed Carrara marble, the Sea Lounge Monte-Carlo is a real little corner of paradise by the sea, the sand and the palm trees. Every day, from late afternoon, it's a perfect meeting place. You can enjoy its unique atmosphere, which is calm yet vibrant, under the blue sky or the stars of the Riviera night.
To mark its return to the lounge philosophy, there are two new time slots to discover! Before nightfall, there's "Nothing but Cocktails" – sip classic cocktails and in-house creations under the setting sun. Later, a groove atmosphere takes over and the rhythm gradually steps up, but still in the lounge spirit – it's time for "Nothing but Music."
To provide the music for these two sessions, the Sea lounge has recruited two new resident DJs. Paul Svenson, a young, talented artist from the Côte d'Azur, has often had the opportunity to DJ at some of the leading clubs and private evening events on the Riviera. Originally from Italy, Luca T has got himself noticed in Europe by adding a world music dimension to his lounge music sets, with tribal, bossa, funk and r'n'b rhythms.
The Sea Lounge's calendar features numerous special events for high days and holidays. Some examples are the Swedish "Mid Sommar" on 22 June, "Independence Day" on 4 July with Greg Cerrone and the "Blue Marlin" evening on 27 July, devoted to the crazy Ibizan nights.
Paolo Sari, the Monte Carlo Beach's new Executive Chef, has created a new, internationally inspired menu in his own signature style, which is in perfect harmony with the setting. On the menu: "Extravagance" with "Three Ch’ti Burgers" (foie gras, Japanese beef and Bresse chicken) and the "Céviche of lobster with green lemon and mango," as well as caviar-based dishes and original variations on barbagiuans (a local pastry speciality) "from here and elsewhere," Far West platters … and Far East platters! The dessert menu puts the emphasis on fresh fruit dishes.
At the bar, the focus is on cocktails, with a "Classic and Variations" menu and some surprising additions – "Sparkling," "Healthy" and "Frozen Chillers," as well as the day's specials. Vintage Champagne (Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000 rosé, Mumm de Cramant Blanc de Blancs and Cristal Roederer 2004), fine wines and exceptional spirits also take pride of place.
It's a must! Each time the Sea Lounge reopens, it brings out a new compilation. The 2012 version, created by well-known DJ Benjamin Franklin, continues the lounge spirit. Entitled "Nothing but Music," it's already available!
Newcomers and regulars will be amazed by the 2012 Sea Lounge experience! A trendy cocktail of luxury and music, in the evening or in the day, a light touch and high-quality services designed by the Monte-Carlo SBM group.
