Club 55 is one of the most prestigious venues, not only in Saint Tropez, but in France, even the world! It sprung to fame in the 1950s when the infamous film And God Created Woman, put Saint Tropez on the map. Rumour has it that Roger Vadim and his crew found the small shack of a restaurant on their first day of filming on Pampelonne beach. After this fortuitous encounter, Club 55 has been a hotspot for the jet set and celebrities ever since. However, the charm has never rusted, it has remained rustic yet chic. Their motto hasn’t changed since their conception in 1955, which is “The customer is not king…because here he is a friend.” The service is always exceptional, and it is without a doubt the number one destination to call on when visiting the Côte d’Azur.
