Given the city's staid, affluent population, the late-night scene tends to be dominated by luxury hotel bars . But pubs are popular with the young, and Vieux Nice has a wide choice of venues for drinking and dancing, though the music tends not to be very novel. A good place to set out is along rue Central in the old town, where many pubs have early evening happy hours. As for Niçois nightclubs , bouncers judging your wallet or exclusive membership lists are the rule.
