About Bars & Nightlife in Val d'Isere
Val d'Isere has a great nightlife scene, starting at apres ski and finishing in the small hours of the morning, there's something going on every night of the week.
Whether you're looking for live music, dancing to some of the best DJ's on the international circuit, singing along to pop classics, dancing on tables spraying champagne or enjoying a fine wine or whisky by the fireside, you'll be able to find somewhere here to suit.
La Folie Douce is a legendary piste-side apres ski bar that opens early in the afternoon. Think Ibizan beach party, but on the snow. The DJ starts his set around 15:00 and really gets the show going with the help of professional singers and dancers. The huge outside decking area is full almost every day with tourists and seasonaires alike partying until the sun goes down over the mountain peak. La Folie is located half way down the OK piste on the way to La Daille. If you unsure of the location, just follow the pumping music, you'll be able to hear it from miles away!
Cocorico is Val d'Isere resort centre's answer to La Folie Douce, located just off the Rond Point roundabout underneath the Solaise bubble lift. It too has a large outside terrace and gets busy around 15:00 with live music from 16:00 and a DJ from 18:00 to 20:00.
Bars like The Fall Line and Victors have a more relaxed atmosphere, where you can take a seat and still enjoy good drinks and live music through the week. Saloon and Moris Pub are also great options for a drink after skiing, where you can enjoy a few games of pool or a couple of games of beer pong whilst enjoying reasonable prices on drinks.
If you are after a more stylish form of apres ski then try Les Barmes de l'Ours Bar, located next to the Face piste. Here you can enjoy the open fire, piano music and a wide selection of fine wines, beers and spirits. For cocktails, head to bar M at the Tsanteleina Hotel. In La Daille, try the Le Samovar Bar, grab a comfy seat by the fire or out on the terrace and reflect on your days skiing.
Val d’Isere has several bars and clubs open until the early hours if you're looking to stay out. You will also find that most hotel bars will remain open for as long as all of the guests are in there having a good time.
For night clubbing, Doudoune Club always has great DJ's (Pete Tong, Danny Howard to name a few) with regular parties throughout the season and is open from 23:00 to 05:00. Dick’s Tea Bar is a Val d'Isere institution and always a good option for late night partying. With great resident DJ’s as well as guest appearances the music is always fantastic and keeps the regular clientele coming back week after week. It's open until 04:00. You also have Le Graal club and Krystal nightclub to try out if you still have the energy!
La Cave sur le Comptoir has a good selection of French wines and champagnes, and offer small food platters to accompany your chosen vintage. You can also buy wine to take away if you are self-catering.
Best of the rest
Many of the bars have Happy Hours where drinks are half price; Victors does two for one cocktails from 21:00 - 23:00 every night and they have some fantastic creations to sample.
For any big sport events, Pacific Bar, Moris Pub or the Fall Line are the best places to go.
