Best bars in Val D’Isère
Coming in first has to be the world famous La Folie Douce! Head to the Folie for an epic après session on the way back to Val or Tignes. Situated at the top of La Daille, the Folie offers beer and bubbles by the bucket load which will definitely put you in the perfect mood after a days riding. Knock back a few Vogels and you’ll be dancing with Kelly Starlight (the outrageously fantastically camp-as-christmas hedonistic owner) and won’t want the rambunctious house beats to finish as you forget about any real life issue or problem whilst you drink and dance the afternoon away! The ski down to La Daille / Tignes is always amusing after a Folie session but you can get the bubble if your legs have had enough!
For those of you that want less house and more head bang, head to the Moris Pub for some live music and some good old fashioned pints. Boding an authentic feel-at-home sticky floor, packed with off-duty seasonaires tasting the utmost delights of another shot of Jaeger, the Moris has it all. Awesome things happen when you combine live music and après revellers.
For a bit more of a chilled, yet super friendly après vibe, head to the Petit Danois. Slightly tucked away off the main street, the bar boasts pool tables and well priced beers. Staff always friendly and help you get in the après vibe. Easy for time to run away with you here and find yourself still in ski boots at 10pm!
