Every resort has an Apres ski vibe and Chamonix definitely doesn’t lack atmosphere or disappoint you for choice!
The best place in town for après ski! Pop your skis out the front with the other hundred pairs, and if you can get through the front door you will find people dancing on tables, a fantastic live band and great happy hour prices.
In the daytime the bar is transformed into a cosy restaurant with outside seating. A tasty menu is served and enjoyed by locals and tourists alike; the plat du jour is definitely a winner.
For something a little bit less hectic than Chambre 9 head across the road to Elevation for a more relaxed environment with plenty of outdoor seating and large bench tables inside. The café bar serves food all day so it is a great option for chilling out after a hard day on the slopes and grabbing a bite to eat.
An awesome spot to enjoy your After Ski drinks with live music and great DJ's! Don't forget to try the Moo burger if you're hungry after a long day on the slopes, because Moo is a lively bar with great apres skiing as well as a lovely restaurant.
In the main square opposite the tourist office, La Terrasse is another popular spot for a lively après ski. DJ’s and bands from 4pm with great happy hour prices, including the famous beat the clock – 5 Euros jugs til 5pm, 6 Euros til 6pm!
Head to the MBC to try some of their 5 beers on tap, and of course the MBC beer of the month! Live music, great pub food, and a fantastic pub environment, the MBC is another popular après ski venue.
Rhododendrons - Les Praz
An après-ski bar with a view. Situated at the foot of the Flegere cable car the ‘Rhodos’ is the perfect place for a chilled out après-ski in the winter or a lazy afternoon session in the summer. The terrace is the place to be in good weather, however inside there are soft, cozy leather sofas, log fire, a stack of newspapers/magazines and sometimes live sport on TV. Only a 15-20 minute walk from the centre of Chamonix or short bus ride with the bus stop directly out the front. Lunch menu is from 12-3pm then it is great pizzas for the afternoon, evening crowd. Live music from 6pm.
The Office Bar – Argentiere
If you have been skiing in Le Tour or on the Grands Montets all day, the office bar is definitely worth a look in. A great favourite with the locals for après ski with live music, full bar and beers on tap, sunny outdoor terrace, delicious homemade burgers, steaks, BBQ ribs and more!
Kitsch Inn – Les Houches
Before heading back to Chamonix after a day out in Les Houches make sure you head to the Kitsch Inn. Fun and quirky décor, friendly staff, prime location, right next to the Bellevue cable car and the bus stop is just out the front.
