Opened in 2007, Le Quai occupies a prime piece of oceanfront real estate overlooking well-positioned mega-yachts occupying coveted front row slips. Within an all-white facade, an iconic black sand patio is lined in Indonesian lounge furnishings packed-together with mojito-sipping models and 50-something playboys. The interior space features a central bar area surrounded by banquette restaurant seating that converts into a full-on nightclub anytime after 9pm. The menu varies between well-cut sashimi and sushi specialties to heartier Indonesian-stuffed raviolis and noodles dishes. During Spring and Summer, the bar fills a nightlife gap left by such places as Les Caves du Roy and VIP Room that only open on weekends or later in the season.
A daily happy hour from 4pm-7pm offers live piano grooves and well-priced sushi or sashimi platters from 10-Euro.
It’s the hottest bar scene in town from April throughJune, attracting Cristal-chugging yacht owners and stilletto-strutting beach club models that do their best to navigate the black sand floor.
