If you have been following us on our lead-up to the August Box, you may have heard us talk about Club 55. So, today we will share a bit of the history of Saint-Tropez’s Club 55!

the history of st tropez's club 55

Club 55 received its name based on the year that it was founded in 1955. It all started with Bernard de Colmont, the father of Patrice (who is the current owner), who built three beach cottages for his family without electricity or running water. At the time, there was one large wooden table in front of one of the huts that served as an informal restaurant for family and other friends with boats.

All of that changed in 1955 when the film crew of Brigitte Bardot’s first film, And God Created Woman asked to book the huts while filming. After the film, Brigitte Bardot and her husband at the time (director Roger Vadim) continued to visit the beach shack every so often and put the place on the map. To this day, royals, rock stars, actors, and yacht owners from all over the world come to hang out at this chic beach club.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted with overgrown bamboo that paves the way to the club. The beautiful outdoor dining is filled with white chairs and blue table linens right on the sand. Their menu includes classic French dishes as well as a variety of salads and freshly grilled seafood. During the summer months, it is highly recommended that you reserve a table and/or sunbed well in advance.
