New for Monaco 2024

Exciting developments are on the horizon for Monaco in the coming year, ranging from the unveiling of Amazónico and a sophisticated Japanese dining experience to the anticipated relaunch of Moods and a rejuvenation of Hôtel de Paris' wine cellars.

Deputy Chairman Stéphane Valeri of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer shared insights at a press gathering held in the Crystal Bar of Hôtel Hermitage, reflecting on a successful 2023 and unveiling a series of compelling projects slated by Monaco's prominent employer.


Monsieur Valeri announced the debut of a new restaurant here within the current Crystal Bar. This forthcoming gastronomic destination, curated by the renowned multi-Michelin-starred Chef Yannick Alléno, will introduce an intimate, fine-dining Japanese experience to Monaco's esteemed Hôtel Hermitage.

Featuring Chef Alléno's winning formula, the restaurant will bring two Michelin-starred sushi Chef Yasunari Okazaki from L'Abysse in Paris to recreate their award-winning Japanese cuisine. The opening is anticipated in July, with plans for a new location for the Crystal Bar underway.


Amazónico, a long-awaited addition situated above the redesigned Café de Paris, will open its doors on April 4th. With its South American energy and a menu inspired by Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, the restaurant aims to captivate locals and tourists alike, leveraging its prime location overlooking Casino Square. *****

By possibly late autumn, the completion of the Monte-Carlo redevelopment will introduce seven luxury boutiques near Café de Paris, including prestigious brands like Tag Heuer and Tiffany & Co.


The reopening of the Michelin-starred Blue Bay restaurant in mid-February at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort is highly anticipated, showcasing a complete makeover under the direction of chef Marcel Ravin.


October 17, 2024, marks the triumphant return of Moods, an iconic Monaco nightspot, to its original Monte-Carlo location. Offering live music, and comedy acts, the new ‘Moods' will feature finger-food catering by the acclaimed Michelin-starred Chef Marcel Ravin.


Monaco's hidden gem, the extensive wine cellars beneath Hôtel de Paris, will undergo renovation and transform into a public museum. Open for guided tours and exceptional dinners in collaboration with leading wine brands, these cellars house over 350,000 bottles of the finest wines.


Sporting Monte-Carlo, the epicenter of Monaco's major concerts, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. With a history of hosting entertainment legends from Frank Sinatra to Elton John, the venue is set for grand celebrations, with anticipation building for SBM's plans for this iconic landmark. Celebration announcements for the venue will hopefully be made soon.
