On the way down from the mountain the Sonnblick bar is a good place to wait for the slopes to quieten, and the Philips bar in Innerwald gets pretty lively. At the foot of the slopes, Marco’s bar has mushroomed in size and is a safe bet. The Kuckuck is okay, but the undisputed king of après is the Schrim Umbrella Bar; literally squeeze yourself in and join the party! The Alm Rausch gets pretty crazy and is always packed with the maddest sort of Dutchmen. But there are so many bars to checkout around the Giggijoch, and we can’t possibly list them all here. Fire & Ice is rammed until it closes until 3am, and the multi-bar and club Bierhimml is heaving at weekends – rammed full of moody teenagers who’ve come up from Innsbruck. It’s worth remembering if only for the top kebabs you can get at 2am. There are a few strip clubs open until 5am – Hasenhütte and Rodelhütte are at opposite ends of the village, and Mirage is behind Die Alm. And if your bed still isn’t beckoning you then the Kühstall is open until the morning sun starts shining.
