From Monday, May 17, curfew in Monaco will begin at 10 p.m. and run to 6 a.m.

Coincidingly, restaurants will stay open later in the evening until 11 p.m. People working in Monaco, as well as their family members living under the same roof, now join Monaco nationals, residents, students and hotel guests who have access to dinner service in the Principality.

The Casino and cultural venues will also remain open until 11 p.m. from today and pools will reopen.

A reminder that in France, curfew will switch from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. from Wednesday, May 19, as the country welcomes the return of restaurant and café terraces reopening (at 50% capacity), along with theatres, cinemas and cultural centers.

Larvotto is set for a grand reopening after a 2-year rehaul estimated to have cost €50 million. From early July, residents and tourists alike will have access to the renovated public beach and private beaches (Rose des Vents, Neptune, Note Bleue and Miami) as well as businesses (Licorne and Palais du Maillot). The Larvotto Gym Center and Monaco Sea Academy/Ecole Bleue will also open their doors.

From winter 2021, a new shopping area with seven additional businesses will open. Four premises ranging from 61 to 103 sqm will be able to accommodate any activity (excluding food). Three premises dedicated to food service (restaurants, bars, brasserie, a café or tea room) are on the upper and lower promenade of Larvotto, with an approximate total surface ranging from 185 to 249 sqm plus a possible terrace of 46 to 125 sqm on the upper promenade.

A call for applications for all seven premises was published in the Journal de Monaco on May 14 and will appear again on May 21. Applications must be sent to the Estate Administration no later than noon on June 14.

All new businesses, as well as those returning this July, will be open year-round.
