Insta Bar in Nice

If you are in Nice this summer and are looking for a place to enjoy a drink with friends (or meet new ones)then make your way to Insta Bar!
Situated near the port, this cozy and dynamic restaurant and cocktail bar is a true hot spot for the locals year round offering a wonderful atmosphere and lounge that is always welcoming no matter your sexual preference.

Here you can not only enjoy some delicacies to nibble on but on special occasions and for sure every Sunday night, Insta Bar is the place to take in the best drag show in the city!
Every weekend the show is new, with the queens being totally interactive with the audience and a certainly makes for a fun night out. These drag stars pull out all the stops when it comes to entertaining with a wide range of music choices, costumes and antics, you’ll never see the same show or drag star extraordinaire twice.
The show and times can vary (although Sunday nights are always a definite) so make sure to like the Insta Bar Facebook Page to keep updated as sometimes extra shows can also be added especially in the summer and it’s best to arrive early, relax with a drink and mingle with those around you before the show it about to begin.

Open Wednesday to Sunday, Insta Bar is very much Instagram worthy!

Inspired by the Teddy Awards at the LGBT film festival in Berlin, Queer Palm was founded by Franck Finance-Madureira in May of 2010 to give more visibility to the LGBT film community.

The movies in competition are chosen solely for their LGBT+ and gender themes.

This is where producers and directors of LGBT films can showcase their work to potential distributors and is part of a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and queer independently-sponsored award presented by specially selected jurors.

If you haven’t attended before, this is one of the best times to be in Cannes, with a truly international crowd in attendance, Queer Palm is perfect to network and make new friends in a most wonderful environment.
