In addition to this rich cultural program, the precious rooftop features a unique design translating Mouton Cadet signature – a sophisticated mix between French taste and international pioneering culture. Palm Springs modern architecture and French Art Deco design both inspired the artistic director Mathias Kiss to create a new Mouton Cadet Wine Bar for the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival.

The walls are covered with large size mirrors that reflect the outstanding panorama offered on the 6th floor terrace, opened on one side by the historical port of Cannes and on La Croisette on the other. The ceiling is covered with light bulbs and neon lights as a reminiscence to the impressive hall of stars of the Palais des Festivals and Hollywood film premieres.

By day, a discreet atmosphere prevails thanks to the juxtaposition of intimate salons, where attendees can enjoy the rooftop lounge in privacy. By night, the Mouton Cadet Wine Bar will put on its best suit for an elegant and cocktail party ambiance.

The exquisitely designed space will offer a cozy, and intimate place to relax from the craze of the Festival that celebrities and wine lovers, alike, are sure to enjoy during their visit to the Mouton Cadet Wine Bar.


Produced by the family-owned French company Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Mouton Cadet was created in 1930 and has remained true to its origins whilst evolving into what has now become the world’s leading brand of Bordeaux AOC wines. Sold in 150 countries around the world, Mouton Cadet has been associated since its creation with exclusive and prestigious events, including the Cannes International Film Festival since 1992.
