The Martinez Hotel Inaugurates Its Summer Guinguette Evenings

Cannes has been injected with a dose of nostalgia as the iconic Cannois palace revives the French Riviera of the roaring twenties with their weekly rendez-vous.

A true homage to the extravagant and care-free Mediterranean lifestyle that characterized the beginning of the last century, the already-cult Ginguette evenings take place every Friday in The Martinez's gardens—the nerve center of the hotel that was recently re-designed by the architect Pierre-Yves Rochon.

These intimate evenings are worthy of the great Gatsby himself with the canotier hats and neck-scarves, rows of collectors' cars gleaming in the twinkling lights, a seemingly endless cocktail selection honoring French delicacies both old and new (including an absinthe fountain), succulent dishes prepared in front of the guests and a lively jazz atmosphere courtesy of the talented orchestra Hot Sugar Band. 


La Guingette du Martinez takes place every Friday evening at 8.00 pm.

The Martinez Hotel, 73 Boulevard de la Croisette, 06400 Cannes.
