The 2016 Mouton Cadet Wine Bar : a unique programme for a unique place
In addition to this rich cultural programme, the precious rooftop features a unique design translating Mouton Cadet signature, a sophisticated mix between French taste and international pioneering culture. Palm Springs modern architecture and French Art Deco design both inspired the artistic director Mathias Kiss to create a new Mouton Cadet Wine Bar for the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival.
The walls covered with large size mirrors reflect the outstanding panorama offered on the 6th floor terrace, opened on one side on the historical port of Cannes and on La Croisette on the other. The ceiling is covered with light bulbs and neon lights as a reminiscence to the impressive hall of stars of the Palais des Festivals and Hollywood film premieres.
By day, a discreet atmosphere prevails thanks to the juxtaposition of intimate salons, where journalists and celebrities can talk and share their latest statements in privacy. By night, the Mouton Cadet Wine Bar puts on its best suit with an elegant and cocktail party ambiance.
