Authentic Savoyard Charm Magda Korzeniak, Ski Specialist

"Morzine is a very pretty village with really easy access to the neighbouring ski resorts of Les Gets and Avoriaz. With the whole Portes du Soleil ski area on your doorstep, it’s also possible to pop over to Switzerland for the day.There are great restaurants and bars in town, ideal for a spot of après-ski."

Après Ski in Morzine

Après-ski in Morzine is very well catered for. Le Dixie Bar on Rue du Bourg is a popular stop with pool tables, games, live rugby and football on the big screens.  There's also often live music for early evening après-ski entertainment. The Tibetan Café (formally know as Le Bouddha Café) offers an unusual mix of Asian spirit with rock & roll tunes while Le Crépu is small and busy and there's always a good atmosphere. Cheap, strong beer pulls in the crowds early on to Bar Robinson and Le Rhodos is great for more chilled out après-ski with relaxing music, newspapers and comfy sofas. Bec Jaune is a microbrewery run by two ex-Londoners and offers craft beers and ales brewed on site. They also offer fresh locally-sourced food ranging from pulled pork buns to vegan superfood burgers.

For something with a bit of class, Hotel Le Samoyède's bar La Taverne is a popular choice for après, serving cocktails and apéritifs with tapas from 4pm. The Wine Bar at restaurant La Chaudanne is a chic but cosy vaulted cellar where you can make use of the sommelier's advice and enjoy their selection of wines and nibbles.

If you're determined to make a big night out of it, check out one of the resort's nightclubs. L'Opéra and Le Paradis and both are open until the early hours.
