Up on the mountain at 2600m near the Jandri mid-station, things kick off at 3pm. The Pano Bar has resident DJ Alan Po Ca, guest DJs and varied entertainment including a sax player, an amazing balloon sculptor, and dancers. It can get pretty wild so if you prefer something a little calmer, the Diable au Coeur also has DJs on the mountain and a heated terrace bar, but without the same volume of music.
Down in the village, the liveliest places for après-ski are the Umbrella bar (only open until 7pm), and Smokey Joes. The Umbrella Bar is at the foot of the Coolidge slope at the Côte Brune Hotel. DJ's spin the tunes from 5pm and and dancing on the bar is encouraged! The umbrella roof is opened in good weather and it's a great place to dance while the sun is setting. Over in the main square Smokey Joes has live music six days a week and a selection of craft beers from their microbrewery in Bourg, plus a pool table and free WiFi. There is no terrace but much more space indoors than the other popular après-ski spots, so it's a good choice on bad weather days.
If you would rather enjoy a couple of pints than dance the afternoon away, there are plenty of pubs and bars to choose from, often with live acoustic music. Popular bars along the main street include the Windsor Pub, Secret Bar, Polar Bear Pub and Red Frog catering to British tastes, whilst the Motown Café, Mezzanine Bar, Lutins Bar and Boardroom are more French in style.
