The town is full of good-looking people spending daddy’s money, but don’t let this put you off. There are plenty of bars to choose from and the place deserves its party reputation. The Mountain Echo is a free weekly magazine that you can pick up in most of the bars with listings for live music, events and special deals.
Between 3-5pm, if you’re up for being sprayed with champagne while dancing on a table then head for the Folie Douce. This is a crazy outdoor daytime ‘nightclub’ on the slopes – although be aware that the drink prices are extortionate. In town there are loads of bars. The Morris pub is good for live music and has a sun terrace in spring. Hidden away opposite the ESF office is the Bluenote, which is a small friendly bar packed with seasonaires. If you want to watch sport then head to the Pacific bar – it’s a bit of a dive but has loads of screens, reasonably priced beer and also cider on tap. Le Petit Danois is a low-ceilinged hangout packed with hot scandis, and later on the Saloon bar gets busy with sweaty teenagers fuelled by their lethal jugs of long island. And if you’re still able, there are four nightclubs to choose from, with Dick’s Tea Bar being the favourite with the Brits.
