Apres Ski Meribel
For apres ski Meribel there is a really lively nightlife scene with crowded bars, loud pubs and popular nightclubs all remaining open until the early hours of the morning, but because the venues are dispersed across the valley people tend to stick to one or two places.
The Rond Point is without doubt the focus of the action with a busy sun terrace and live music. Located above the centre of Méribel by the roundabout (le Rond Point), the bar is also known as The Ronny.
In the town centre, The Pub, Scott’s Bar (both in Hotel Doron) and La Taverne (Hotel le Roc) are lively from late afternoon through to the early hours, as are Jack’s Bar, Evolution and Cactus Cafe in La Chaudanne and Rastro’s in Mottaret.
Le Poste de Secours makes a refreshing change from the British-dominated bars and pubs, providing a more authentic French atmosphere (at a price) in Méribel Centre. A wide range of international beers, cocktails and champagne by the glass.
After the après-ski scene has run its course, party animals should head for Dick’s Tea Bar or the Loft in La Chaudanne. The former is an expensive, British-run bar and nightclub that’s like Clapham-on-Snow while the latter is French-run and plays Euro-pop.
Both nightclubs have dancing all night long, with well known DJs playing both old classics and funky new music.
The stylish Barometer bar plays good music, has good service, opens early for après ski cocktails and remains open late serving wines by the glass.
Le Pub is one of the largest and most popular pubs in Meribel; it has an après ski happy hour with live band performances regularly and live screenings of the English football (soccer) matches.
Opening hours: 16.00 – 01.30
Happy Hours: 16.00 – 1800 & 22.00 – 23.00
