The best après ski bars in Morzine

Bar Tremplin

Bar Tremplin is a Morzine institution! It’s the best après ski bar in Morzine town.

With DJ’s spinning classic tunes from 4pm each afternoon, a terrace in the sunshine and a great selection of drinks, it’s not hard to see why.

The terrace also looks onto Le Stade, the steep red home run into Morzine. This makes it a great place to kick back and watch people ski (and crash) on their last run of the day.

Skiing with kids? As the bar is right next to the bottom of the piste there is also loads of room for kids to play in the snow whilst parents enjoy a nice sit-down and a drink.

In the summer it is much the same. Just swap skiing for mountain biking and you’ll get the picture.

For more information visit the Bar Tremplin website.

Le Crépu

Le Crépu is a classic ski bar, complete with a fully wooden interior for those “chalet vibes”. It was completely renovated in 2019, sprucing up the interior and expanding their outdoor terrace to provide even more table space.

Situated in the town square, opposite the Credit Agricole bank, it’s a great central spot to grab a drink with your friends after a day’s skiing or biking.

As the night goes on sometimes there’s live music, screenings of ski/snowboard or mountain bike videos or just some good tunes. Whatever’s going on, there will be plenty of drinks to be consumed and some good vibes to enjoy.

For more information visit the Le Crépu website.

Pleney ski area

La Vaffieu

This chalet restaurant is located in a quiet spot at the top of Pleney gondola, next to the top of the Belvedere chairlift.

Conveniently located in the beginner ski area, Le Vaffieu is accessible to all including pedestrians so it’s a great place to meet any non-skiing members of your party for a drink or to reconvene after ski school.

It has a huge sunny terrace which gets the sun all day, making it the perfect spot to catch a couple of drinks anytime of day, not just for après!

Located at the top of the Super Morzine telecabine, the bar is accessible for skiers and non-skiers alike, making it a great meeting point for all the family.

After a great day on the mountain, there’s no better place to settle down with an Aperol Spritz before catching the last bubble into Morzine.

For more information visit the L'Passage Facebook page.

La Folie Douce

If you’ve been skiing before you’ve probably heard of the famous Folie Douce bars, present in many of the French ski resorts. Folie Douce translates to “sweet madness” in English and that’s rather accurate!

At the Folie Douce you can expect an après ski experience, rather than an après ski bar - it’s certainly not for the faint of heart.

Live DJs, singers, dancers and light shows all add to the crazy party atmosphere. Dancing on the tables is not only encouraged, it’s a must.

If you want a real Folie Douce experience then be sure to reserve a table in the VIP area. Located on the Avoriaz plateau, you’ll hear it before you can see it!

For more information visit La Folie Douce - Avoriaz webpage.

The best bars to watch sport

Dixie Bar

Dixie Bar is a go-to bar in Morzine to watch two main sports – football and rugby – but they also show tennis, F1 and more.

Let’s start with football. Dixie Bar has the licence to show Premier League, Champions League and many other top European games. When there are big international tournaments in the summer they also show those games.

Remember that because Morzine is in France it is possible for bars to show Premier League games at 3pm on a Saturday. Something that still isn’t possible in the UK.

Dixie Bar also specialises in showing rugby and is the spot to catch Six Nations games that take place in February and March each year. The atmosphere is always excellent and the beer flows freely – awesome fun!

Dixie Bar is located at the bottom of Rue du Bourg, on the corner just before you cross the bridge.

The Haka Bar

Although Dixie Bar is best known as the go-to Six Nations venue, Haka Bar is also a great bar to catch the games.

It tends to be a little less busy and boisterous than Dixie Bar so is a good option if you can’t be bothered with all that.

Haka Bar is located in the town square, opposite the Credit Agricole bank.

Hideout Hostel

Hideout Hostel’s food is the opposite of what most other restaurants in Morzine offer – and that is the point.

Each season they switch up which cuisine from around the world they offer and they’ve never failed to hit the mark with delicious, inventive and fun dishes. Previous seasons have seen pan Asian small plates and Mexican street food.

Hideout’s reputation for excellent food means booking ahead is heavily advised. The bar is popular with locals and tourists alike with a nice busy-but-not-too-rowdy atmosphere, so arriving an hour early for a beer is a great way to spend your evening.

Great wine bars in Morzine

Le Coup de Coeur

You know you’re in the best wine bar in town when the wine list is literally an encyclopaedia. If you’re a wine buff then Coup de Coeur Bar is the bar for you. Even the walls are lined with wine!

At first glance, La Chaudanne is a very nice restaurant. However, for those in the know, it’s also home to a secret underground wine bar.

Upon entering the restaurant, you’ll notice the glass panel in the floor of the foyer. Look carefully and you’ll see it offers a peek into the cosy wine cellar where you can enjoy a glass (or bottle) from La Chaudanne’s excellent selection.

In the traditional French style, apèro-style cheese and charcuterie platters are available to accompany your drinks should you feel a bit peckish. And if you’re inclined to stay for dinner in the restaurant, you can bring your bottle upstairs with you.

Section 9

Bars with a poppin’ dance floor

The Cavern Bar

On a good night the whole of Cavern Bar is one big dance floor. Expect party anthems from the last few decades and a great, hot and sweaty atmosphere. The DJ changes from night to night but we love a bit of DJ Ronnie who always supplies the bangers at the right moment to keep the energy high and the party going!

Grab a group of mates, a couple of rounds of shots and head on to the dance floor (basically the whole bar) – you’re guaranteed to have a great time!

Cavern is in the heart of Morzine’s nightlife area, just off the town square. And true to its name, it is situated underground.

For more information visit the Cavern Bar website.

Tibetan Café

Tibetan Bar, which is often known as Buddha Bar, is another classic ski bar in Morzine. It was recently refurbished but maintains its kinda-Tibetan decor as well as it’s let-all-have-a-good-time party vibes.

The bar is well stocked with any and every drink you could wish for and the service is snappy.

Throughout the winter and summer seasons Tibetan Bar has a DJ every night playing a great mix of party classics from the 80s through to the modern day.

Reflecting the music, the crowd here tends to be a mixture of ages too which can lead to some brilliant dance floor action and hilarious drunken conversations.

Tibetan Bar is in the heart of Morzine’s nightlife area, just off the town square.

For more information visit the Tibetan Café website.

Café Chaud

In all honesty, Café Chaud isn’t to our tastes but this guide wouldn’t be complete without mentioning it. But if you’re up for a grungey night with drink deals and a crowd in their late teens/early twenties then this is the place for you.

Café Chaud is tucked away down a back street just a few minutes walk from the town square, and on the same road as La Grange Restaurant.

For more information visit the Café Chaud website.

L'Opéra Nightclub

L’Opéra is Morzine’s one and only nightclub and is infamous in its reputation as the place to end a wild night out. Dance music accompanies smoke machines, lasers and dancing in cages. It can get pretty wild here in the wee hours.

The drinks are expensive, but let’s face it, you’ve probably had enough by the time you get here. If you are in the mood for more drinks, we recommend teaming up with some friends and buying a bottle of spirits from behind the bar. That bottle will come with free mixers so it generally works out the cheapest way to drink here.

L’Opéra Nightclub is centrally located on the road that connects the town square with the Pléney lift (Taille de Mas du Pléney). It is underneath Restaurant L’Étale.

For more information visit the L'Opéra Facebook page.
