Monaco’s Stars’n’Bars hits the slopes this weekend

starscourcheval2 (1)A new Stars’n’Bars is opening this weekend in Courchevel at Aquamotion, Europe’s largest mountain water park. The establishment will include a main restaurant and a smaller “SNB Grill”, which overlooks the theme park’s indoor surfing attraction.

The original Stars’n’Bars was opened by Kate Powers and Didier Rubiolo in Monaco in 1993. This latest Courchevel venture will feature the same commitment to healthy, homemade food (traditional favourites like burgers and nachos, as well as organic and vegan choices), family fun and maintain the spirit of sports. In fact, the new restaurant decor features the first competition bobsled of Prince Albert II from the 1984 Calgary Olympics and guests can climb inside for a souvenir photo.

Ongoing entertainment will include children’s birthday parties, musical evenings, games and non-stop TV sports nights. The restaurant in Courchevel is the first Stars’n’Bars to open in France, and there are two other restaurants in Abu Dhabi and Amritsar, India.

The Aquamotion 15,000 square meter water park is packed with features such as indoor and outdoor pools, a diving pool, surfing area with a spectacular wave, three lane water slide, wild water rapids, saunas, steam room, hot tub and climbing wall.

Both Kate and Didier are attending the opening ceremony this weekend in Courchevel, which coincides with the opening of Aquamotion for the new ski season. Kate told Monaco Life, “It’s so exciting to see families from so many parts of the world enjoy the Stars’n’Bars experience. And this time, our new location is close enough for many of our regular Monaco customers to visit during their ski vacations and have a home away from home.”
