Après-Ski in Chamonix

The après-ski scene in the Chamonix valley is international and lively, with things getting started from the early evening.

Chambre Neuf, near the main train station, is a good choice during happy hour with live music and a good atmosphere. The Micro Brasserie de Chamonix (or MBC) is another popular après-ski stop, just 5 minutes' walk from the town centre. All beer is brewed on the premises and there's a good selection of bar snacks and live music. At the Les Houches end of the valley, don't miss family-friendly Brewpub Le Solerey, with its excellent craft beers and superb menu of slow smoked BBQ meats, as well as veggie and vegan options.

If you fancy a more glamorous venue, Les Caves on Rue du Moulin is a stylish wine and cocktail bar. 'Cha'Cha'Cha is a wine bar/shop with a wide range of wines, champagnes, spirits and craft beers. Here, staff will recommend the best wines and beers to enjoy with a selection of charcuterie.
