Best après-ski bars and clubs
St Moritz Apres Ski is too civilized for raucous après-ski. In the late afternoon, you’re more likely to find locals having tea and pastries at Hanselmann’s than knocking back the beers. Rare sightings of beer-drinking, ski-suited types can be had at the Schirm Bar and Alpina Hütte, by the Chantarella mid-station on Corviglia, and at Hotel Hauser’s outdoor bar.
From about 4pm onwards, Bobby’s Pub in the Caspar Badrutt Shopping Gallery attracts a young crowd including Britons in search of Guinness and football.
After dinner, Crystal Hotel’s Piano Bar is good for civilised cocktails while locals live it up at Stübli (Hotel Schweizerhof), Cava bar (Hotel Steffani) and later at King’s Club (Badrutt’s Palace hotel) and Vivai (Hotel Steffani).
