The Latin American restaurant group, COYA, has announced the launch of its first European site outside London, opening in Monaco in May 2018. Coinciding with the Monaco Grand Prix, COYA will open above Jimmy’z and Monte Carlo Bay.
The 257-cover venue will incorporate a buzzing and vibrant bar and a contemporary Peruvian restaurant, COYA said. In collaboration with Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, COYA Monte Carlo says it is set “to revive the city’s culinary scene, providing a vibrant hub for international visitors and the stars of music, film, fashion and sport”.

Guests will be taken on a Latin American journey from the moment they arrive at the grand entrance of COYA Monte-Carlo. The sweeping terrace with sea views, COYA’s infamous Pisco Bar & Lounge, a luxury shisha experience and resident DJ throughout the summer will make this Monaco’s new hotspot.
A menu of globally renowned COYA dishes will be overseen by Chef Sanjay Dwivedi, who combines traditional elements of Peruvian cuisine with Modern European cooking techniques and Asian influences to create naturally light and healthy dishes.

The décor, designed by the London-based design studio Sagrada, who are responsible for all COYA venues (London, Abu Dhabi and Dubai), will incorporate Peruvian artefacts, plant features and bespoke hand-crafted furniture. A key design feature of the restaurant will be the Ceviche Bar – an open prep kitchen that puts guests at the centre of the action to watch the iconic Peruvian dishes being made.
A 30-seater Private Dining Room will provide ultimate exclusivity and a spectacular dining experience with unrivalled views.
COYA Monte-Carlo will be open in May throughout high season, closing in October 2018 for the winter period.
Happy Monday everybody! Your handy-dandy Style Editor here is ready to lift you out of the melancholy already setting in from the end of the weekend. What did you get up to? Did you go to the Wiener Ball or the Luxury Lifestyle Charity Gala? Did you hear about Philipp Plein and AS Monaco partnering up? It was quite a busy three days for the fashion conscious in Monaco!
With seemingly the worst of winter behind us, the layers are starting to peel off with the warmer spring temperatures and my, my, I quite like what I see. Blazers and florals and pailletes, oh my!
Are you ready for your style lesson? Let’s begin.
cat98000 One of my favourite mode mavens was living her best life this weekend serving Saturday Night Fever Realness. As much as I love Cat’s usual matchy-matchy Birkin completed looks with matching lacy dog leashes, THIS LOOK shows us that Cat truly comes alive after dark like some sort of nocturnal fashion moth. Where do we start?!
This iridescent asymmetrical shoulder sequin situation is not for the faint of heart. Doggy mom by day and Disco Queen by night, just put a spotlight on Cat and bam! INSTANT PARTY! No but really this fun party dress has got me shook. The colour is so multidimensional and I love a flair of drama. Also HELLOOOOO Cat’s bae. This glen-check 3-piece suit is a LOOK as well. I love a good fashion couple. Shine on Cat. Shine On.
sandrineglamorousmc Fitness never looked so FASHION until I saw Sandrine. This personal trainer looks like shopping gets her heart pumping as much as a good cardio session. Not too fussy Sandrine opts for simple and classic luxury staples. I love a formal blazer t-shirt combo especially when that blazer is Balmain. Black skinny jeans tucked into Hermès calfskin jumping boots are a perfect look for a mom on the go. And, of course, one can never go wrong with an Hermès Kelly bag, because you know … how can you live in Monaco without one?
If ever I would recommend a full look to someone to go out immediately it would definitely be this. Too bad my bank account isn’t balling. I’ll live vicariously through you Sandrine.
benny_hancock I always love when a fashion blogger touches down in MC. Benny Hancock was living his James Bond fantasy this weekend during his visit to Monaco, stepping out of the Heli Air like a boss in a fierce Arctic Army parka. Still on trend yellow tinted aviators to shield his eyes from the sun reflecting off the port, Benny was off to discover the best in town. Leather joggers (did Kanye really invent them?) and Vans add a streetwear element of next level coolness.
Sometimes in Monaco guys like to splash out on the luxury labels and the bling and while that’s all good and nice it’s not always “stylish”. There’s a difference between fashion and style and Benny has style. Boys take notes. Sometimes less is more.
galinapodzolko Sometimes you yourself are your best PR and that’s exactly what Galina seems to be following. This Russian designer soaked up the one hour of sun in Monaco this weekend in a few different and all equally stunning outfits. From head to toe, no detail is left forgotten.
I was completely smitten with this dusty rose floral dress designed by her for her namesake brand Galina Podzolka. Fun and flirty but still elegant Galina is giving us a spring teaser. That Devil Wears Prada quote “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking” comes to mind, but hey if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. The little red sunglasses are very on trend (currently Matrix inspired eyewear is the accessory du jour) and keep the look from looking too matronly. A pair of red strappy open heels add to the feeling of freedom that the promise of spring brings.
rachelward_e I already told you how much I live for a cute blazer and t-shirt situation. And while I do love classic black or navy, sometimes we gotta freshen it up for spring/summer. Model and blogger Rachel is showing us who the real style queen was in Monaco this weekend I mean peep her t-shirt! I love a good graphic tee. Layered under a white pinstripe blazer looking like a fashion gangster, Rachel kept the look fresh with her clean colour choices. Two-tone denim is always a good idea when you want to shake things up a bit. The 80s mood is till going strong.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a complete Monaco look without accessories from the quintessential brand. A Hermès Clic H bracelet and Hermès Birkin make sure that when you see Rachel around town, you know she’s serious about her style.
