Monte-Carlo Country Club

In 1925 because of the lack of space within the Principality, the SBM bought some hectares of land in St Roman (Roquebrune-Cap-Martin) and more than 1500 labourers worked hard to build the very famous terraces which today form one of the most beautiful tennis Club in the world.

The architect Letrosne designed the Club in an entirely new Art Déco style; each terrace had two or three courts separated by borders of flowers and cypress trees. 20 courts were envisaged, 12 for international competition, 8 for leisure. The pathways were protected from the sun by interlaced beams and arches. The restaurant could accommodate 150 guests and the locker rooms equipped with individual lockers would accomodate up to 700 members. According to the great tennisman of the times, Teddy Tinling, this architectural masterpiece is an ode to tennis.

The bar is a gem in the Roaring Twenties’ style  

In 2019 the MCCC commissioned RDS to renovate this jewel. Respecting the original mood instilled by Lestrone, RDS delivered a modernised art deco version of this bar in 2020.

We invite you to discover the fabulous history of this mythical place of the French Riviera, on the MCCC website. And we would be delighted to meet you at the Monte-Carlo Country Club Bar.
