50th anniversary of Les Caves du Roy

50 ANS !

Re ecting the lively and joyful atmosphere that reigns at all times in Saint-Tropez, les caves du roy, an exact replica of the eponymous nightclub at the excelsior hotel in beirut, has long been a venue of choice for those seeking the ultimate party atmosphere. Five decades of memorable all-nighters have seen Les Caves become the stuff of legend alongside New York’s «Studio 54», Ibiza’s «Le Pacha» or «Le Palace» in Paris.

Successive generations have ocked to Les Caves du Roy to nd «that little something extra» that cannot be found anywhere else.

The earliest visitors can still recall the same ritual: the party would begin at Club 55 on the beach at Ramatuelle and continue until sundown, before heading to Byblos for dinner at the poolside pop-up eatery run by Picolette and Lina (who had introduced Brigitte Bardot to her future husband Gunter Sachs in their restaurant in nearby Gassin). They would then enjoy a hilarious drag show in

the «Krak des Chevaliers» a mini-discotheque housed in the former champagne bar, now home to Sisley Spa.

The evening entertainment drawing to a close, everyone would head for Les Caves du Roy, where it would not be unusual to nd the French rocker Eddy Mitchell serving cocktails at the bar, to hear an impromptu recital with Charles Aznavour tinkling the ivories and Liza Minelli on vocals, or to witness the arrival of the «Barclay crowd», the king of vinyl having called a halt to one of his «white dress only» parties in his magni cent villa on Cap Camarat, to head down whatever the hour to Les Caves with his band of merry men in tow (Daniel Hechter, Darry Cowl, Stéphane Collaro, Carlos), ready to rub shoulders with the likes of Johnny Hallyday, Prince Albert of Monaco, George Michael and Elton John...

As night gave way to day and Les Caves du Roy closed its doors, the joyous revellers would head down to the portside bar «Le Gorille» for a tasty breakfast platter of French fries...

A never-ending queue of eager revellers winding its way beneath the wisteria adorning the staircase, brightly-lit palm tree pillars, a discreet VIP area and a busy and bustling dance oor... little has changed over the years. The rst «Queen of Tropezian nights», Jacqueline Veyssière enjoyed a thirty-year reign over the most famous night spot of the Riviera. She was then succeeded by the late Jean de Colmont, who brought his very own style of panache and eccentricity to the club. Presided over today by the somewhat impetuous Junior, Les Caves is still the place to be in Saint-Tropez. From the debut performances of the Gipsy Kings to the extravagant show by Grace Jones sitting astride a Harley Davidson, Les Caves du Roy has always drawn a host of international stars; Bono, Naomi Campbell, P. Diddy, Donatella Versace, Bruce Willis, to name but a few; all are drawn here by the promise of an unforgettable night-time experience...

The forthcoming anniversary will be one of the most important events for night revellers from all over the world, with les caves du roy surely playing host to some of the most extravagant parties of 2017...
