Val d’Isère après-ski has a varied and lively nightlife with loud pubs and popular nightclubs open until the early hours. Home of the original après-ski experience – The legendary Folie Douce, and the iconic Dicks Tea Bar which was founded in 1979. Take a look at our pick of the best après ski and nightlife in Val d’Isère:
La Folie Douce
Start of the season, end of the season…all season, the parties at La Folie Douce are something else. A popular bar for young skiers, La Folie is known for its bouncing club atmosphere, indoors and out, with an epic international line-up. Thanks to a modern restaurant serving regional delicacies and a canteen-style eatery for an easy bite, you won’t go short of food either. There’s an outdoor BBQ-style kiosk for grilled snacks while you party. La Folie prides itself on being an après-ski adventure for those who love to burn the candle at both ends.
Situated at the bottom of the resort in La Face, Bananas is a Val d’Isère institution open until 2am. Ideal for those on the descent from the mountain and for those late night drinks. This restaurant serves an assortment of Mexican, Indian and French specialities.
This is a well-loved après bar with international DJs, a host of live music and some of the best après-ski around. The order of the day here is dancing on the tables, and the atmosphere is always buzzing. It’s right at the foot of Solaise and the Face de Bellevarde, so you can jump straight in and enjoy the open-air setting with unreal views. There’s no need to fear going hungry after partying either: snacks and sandwiches will keep you going.
Dicks Tea Bar
Dicks Tea Bar has been a Val d’Isère après ski institution since 1979. Having played host to many 80s celebrities back in the day, today the After Dinner Club has a multitude of amazing live performers. Enjoy in house-musicians and DJs all waiting to entertain you.
