Rainbow Power Group

Where would the French Riviera be if it wasn’t for its internationally known jet set scene?

Part of that scene can certainly be attributed to Anthony and Thibaud, two locals in the region who started with a few exclusive private parties held back in 2005.

As it goes with any memorable party, word got out and with little resources at hand this amazing duo utilized their hotel management backgrounds and efforts into providing a consistent stream of gay events held at a variety of venues.

Before they knew it, their imaginative and ultra-chic events were in high demand and so with that the Rainbow Power Group was born!

Rainbow Power
What’s refreshing about the Rainbow Power events is they don’t seem to just be trying to cash in on the pink dollar.  These are intricately planned gay events that are inclusive to everyone, heterosexuals included.

They spend a lot of time and effort striving diligently to provide the best in entertainment value at a very reasonable price and do their best to put the French Riviera’s nightlife on the map.

You know when you go to a Rainbow Power event, it’s not just a party, it is going to be an experience.

The caliber of their events is unsurpassed and full of inspiration, there is an excess to these parties that take you away from your everyday life.  From the hottest dancers, to the intricate light shows, it’s all a feast for the senses.

Walking into one of the events is like stepping into another world as the venues are redesigned from top to bottom with no detail left unchecked and they always provide the best music from talented DJ’s and other forms of entertainment.
And these boys don’t just keep their act in the French Riviera, having honed their skills for years, the Rainbow Power Group is now one of the biggest event management companies in France, bringing their shows to other places like Bordeaux, Paris and Barcelona to name a few.

They will even be a huge part of the celebrations at EuroPride 2013 in Marseille this year!

High Club

If you’re a size queen, if bigger is better or if you just want a huge space in which to dance your ass off all night long, then High Club in Nice is the place to be.

High Club

High Club is one of the largest nightclubs in the French Riviera and with its stunning seafront location at: 45 Promenade des Anglais, it would be hard to miss.
You can literally feel a buzz of excitement in the air approaching the nightclub and for good reason as High Club is nothing less than spectacular!

This is one of those jet set places you hear about and in which everyone wants to be a part of and yet it won’t break the bank.

If you wanted to get an overview of High Club to gain a feel for the place then I would suggest once inside, make your way through the wide inner lobby and up a flight of stairs to the SK’ High section.

Here you will be able to get drinks and get your bearings while looking down on to the main area of the nightclub containing the massive dance floor, VIP areas, one of the bars and the stage where the DJ’s spin usually surrounded by a gaggle of scantily clad go-go dancers both male and female set on top of pedestals.

SK’High is also known as a gay section of the club, but don’t let a part of the club hold you back, the whole of High Club is open and free for anyone to cruise and use.

High Club itself isn’t technically considered a gay nightclub but it is extremely gay-friendly, to the point that one of France’s biggest gay promotional companies, Rainbow Power, frequently holds sell out events here.

Back down to the main level of the club near the lobby is a side lounge known as Studio 47, this is more of a relaxed area of High Club where you can take a break from dancing and hang out with friends.

And of course there is the main dance section of the club where all the real action happens literally inches away from the hottest DJ’s and next to all the sexy and sultry dancers.
High Club spares no expense to bring in the most talented DJ’s from around the world such as: Martin Solveig, Benny Benassi, David Vendetta, Bob Sinclair and others to play with the super mega sound system and state of the art lighting.

The whole of High Club is so much fun to not only explore but to meet people from all over the world.  My only advice is although it is open weekends from midnight until at least 6am, I would try to get there early as it does get busy quickly so expect line-ups to get in but those wait times are at least legit because of its popularity and do keep moving.

See and be seen at High Club but most of all have the time of your life!
