1. Maona, a summer cabaret atmosphere

From Jerry Lewis to Josephine Baker, Liza Minelli and Yves Montant, all the icons of the 60s set foot in the party mecca that is Maona. And until September 29, 2024, you too could sway to the rhythm of music past and present, while enjoying tasty Mediterranean cuisine.

From 7 pm to 8 pm, a retro soundtrack created by the French electro collective Bon Entendeur kicks the evening off. Then it’s Diva time, with Niki Black this summer, who performs live between 8pm and 2am before an electro-disco DJ set takes over.
