Not only that but it’s potentially the most celebrated nightspot in France altogether.

Another option is the VIP Room, which Karl Lagerfeld has called the best club in the world.

Where to Stay
The original terracotta-colored architecture, as charming as it may be isn’t the only one filling the scenery anymore. Lavish villas have sprouted up to accommodate a more secluded getaway during the busy months while still offering plenty of space and stunning views. But nothing compares to the traditional fishing village charm and if you are after the classic Côte d’Azur feeling, St. Tropez doesn’t lack exquisite hotels nestled between the native French Riviera scenery.
From La Résidence de la Pinède which is a true Mediterranean haven to Muse, a sanctuary-like boutique hotel perched atop a little bluff in Ramatuelle, the 5-star luxury hotels are as lavish as St. Tropez itself. One, however, stands out from the crowd and that is the legendary Hotel Byblos, which is a real St Tropez legend and has been around for over 50 years.
