"N" is for Negresco

The luxurious Hotel Negresco on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice has played host to a number of celebrities including Princess Grace of Monaco and The Beatles. The chandelier hanging in the hotel's Royal Lounge was originally designed by Gustave Eiffel (who built the famous tower in Paris) for Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. The tsar was unable to take delivery of his chandelier when revolution broke out in 1917.

    1. I know what you mean. But a group of us went into the hotel bar for a cocktail and the waiter was very nice and welcoming, despite our casual attire.
