Best Nightlife in Les 2 Alpes

Discover the top Les 2 Alpes nightlife


There’s no better way to celebrate a great day on the slopes than with a few well earned après-ski drinks amongst friends.

Whether you prefer to soak up the last of the afternoon sun with a quiet beer or dance on the tables in your ski boots, Les 2 Alpes has no shortage of great spots where you can amuse yourself when the lifts shut for the day. 


Up on the mountain at 2600m near the Jandri mid-station, things kick off at 3pm. The Pano Bar has resident DJ Alan Po Ca, guest DJs and varied entertainment including a sax player, an amazing balloon sculptor, and dancers. It can get pretty wild so if you prefer something a little calmer, the Diable au Coeur also has DJs on the mountain and a heated terrace bar, but without the same volume of music.

Down in the village, the liveliest places for après-ski are the Umbrella bar (only open until 7pm), and Smokey Joes. The Umbrella Bar is at the foot of the Coolidge slope at the Côte Brune Hotel. DJ's spin the tunes from 5pm and and dancing on the bar is encouraged! The umbrella roof is opened in good weather and it's a great place to dance while the sun is setting. Over in the main square Smokey Joes has live music six days a week and a selection of craft beers from their microbrewery in Bourg, plus a pool table and free WiFi. There is no terrace but much more space indoors than the other popular après-ski spots, so it's a good choice on bad weather days.

If you would rather enjoy a couple of pints than dance the afternoon away, there are plenty of pubs and bars to choose from, often with live acoustic music. Popular bars along the main street include the Windsor PubSecret BarPolar Bear Pub and Red Frog catering to British tastes, whilst the Motown Café, Mezzanine Bar, Lutins Bar and Boardroom are more French in style.

Late nights

2 Alpes' nightlife really gets going after 10pm. Rue des Vikings (up by the Diable lift) turns into a lively little street and has several bars worth stopping in at. The Jukebox serves up a selection of music themed nights from house to 80's to prohibition-era Jazz whilst across the road, Melt-In-Art combines the roles of bar and art gallery. The K-re shooter bar at the top of the street has the biggest selection of cocktails in town and the Polar Bear Pub by the roundabout is always popular. Just around the corner, The Spot has regular live music and DJ nights.

Any bar with a pirate flag flying outside is going to be dangerous and the legendary Rhumerie on the main street is no exception, specialising in home-flavoured rums and rum based cocktails all set to a pirate theme.

After midnight, popular dancing spots include Smithy's, the next-door Minibar and the Grotte du Yeti on the Place de Venosc. These don’t open any later than the rest of the bars, but they do attract the crowds later on with live DJs and a good party reputation.

After the bars close (around 2am), the Avalanche nightclub beside Smithies and the Café Brasilien by the cinema are the destinations of choice for those not ready to head home. Both are busy until 4 or 5am with a mixture of resident and guest DJs pumping out the tunes. Up in the Village 1800 area, O’Brian’s bar also keeps the party going into the small hours of the morning.
