Red Kafé

Summer seems to be the right moment for a new establishment to open in Nice and such is the case with the latest local hot spot, Red Kafé!

Having opened this past July at: 9 rue Halevy in what is known as a major pedestrian zone in the city. It was only natural that the foot traffic would take notice of the new business but it also didn’t take long for Red Kafé to acquire a huge following in the LGBTQ community thanks to its well-regarded owners.

With word out about Red Kafé becoming the ideal gathering place, friends and I make it one of our top locations to hang out either on the way to the beach, to have a work meeting with clients, or stopping in for a drink or two before heading to the nightclubs for the evening.
The owners seem to recognize that along with being in the pedestrian zone, their business could also become the fun zone. And it truly is fun, given the heat during the summer months in the French Riviera; the café is excellent for relaxing on their terrace watching the world go by while enjoying a cool, full bodied, delicious drink.

Yet it is also known for its great food service and atmospheric build up in the evening where you can listen to the sounds of a local DJ the owners occasionally bring in to entertain while you enjoy a drink, plan and anticipate the night ahead.

If you are visiting Nice and want to meet new people, the Red Kafé is one of the perfect locations to do so. Not only are the staff attentive but they are knowledgeable about what is currently happening in the city scene and the customers seem to like to chat with others which helps to make new friends.

Librairie Vigna LGBT et féminisme in Nice

It goes without saying that the French love literature. And the Librairie Vigna LGBT et feminisme in central Nice provides just the space to explore and purchase new, old and slightly used books.

Quietly in operation over the past few years, the Librairie Vigna et feminisme is a place that runs at its own pace and feels like one of those wonderful shops one happens to stumble upon in any city in France.

Although huge supporters of local LGBTQ events, the bookstore itself contains a sense of serenity, it’s a shop where one can browse for hours and where you might discover a hidden treasure by one of your favorite authors.

Many lectures are held here by writers both new and experienced to the craft along with plenty of lively discussions tackling subjects on most anything from the past, present and future which just feels quintessentially French.

It is also not unusual to enter the Librairie Vigna LGBT et feminisme and come across an exhibition presented by a regional artist showcasing their work as the bookstore is locally known as a kind of mecca for artists, writers, and the curious alike.

If you are looking for hard to find limited copy publications or specialized published material on a large variety of subjects pertaining to the LGBTQ cultural community and beyond, then the Librairie Vigna LGBT et feminisme is the place to visit!
