SWB LIFE – A WEEKEND IN MONACO

Why Monaco? The country is half the size of New York’s Central Park, featuring one mile of coastline, which lends to an intimate travel experience with an unparalleled level of luxury rarely found in other parts of the world.

Where I Stayed: At the enchanting Hotel Metropole, a Belle Epoque property originally built in 1889 that boasts a Karl Lagerfeld-designed pool, a brand new Givenchy spa, and newly-renovated decor by French interior designer, Jacques Garcia, whose poetic use of printed upholstery immediately transports you into a world of cozy luxury.

Travel Uniform: Monte Carlo calls for Grace Kelly-inspired packing: elegant, classic staples that can carry you from cocktails and dinner to the casino for a round of roulette.

Best Nighttime Hangout Spot: Sass Cafe, located on avenue Princess Grace, is the go-to spot for after-dinner drinks and late night snacks.
