A BODY has been found buried in the concrete wall of a popular bar in a French holiday hotspot.

The entombed corpse was discovered in the bar L'Atrium in downtown Nice after police found traces of blood during a search of the premises on Wednesday.

It had been buried in concrete in one of the bar's cellar walls on 66 Rue De France.

The unidentified victim was discovered on Wednesday, according to the AFP and BFM Nice Côte d'Azur.

The manager of the bar was arrested for "kidnapping and unlawful confinement resulting in death".

Several individuals are currently being detained and heard by police, Parvine Derivery, Nice Deputy Public Prosecutor, told AFP.

The bar manager has allegedly admitted to having a row with a man, killing him and sinking him in a concrete slab, according to a police source quoted by the news agency.

There has been a flurry of comments following the discovery of the body in a bar described by many as friendly.

Chris Gaillot, who is from Nice, said: "How awful! We're at a point where drinking a coffee can cost us our lives.

"[There is] too much insecurity and violence, this city is dangerous."

Sandrine Assoumou Evora reacted to the news saying: "What world are we living in?"

"This story knocks you out for six," Leslie Longatte said.
