Many people believe that après ski is all about thumping music, dancing on tables and staying up all night. Whilst this certainly is possible and great fun on occasion, it is not for everyone.

Fortunately, places like La Plagne have great diversity and suitable establishments for every taste. If your tabletop dancing days are behind you but you still enjoy a few beers and a laugh, La Plagne has plenty of more relaxed, pub-style venues to choose from.

These boozers are great places for having a few beers, chilling with your mates and ex-changing your stories from the day with fellow skiers. You can then leave at a reasonable hour and retire to your catered chalet. La Plagne has many great drinking establishments, but read on to find out which ones you simply cannot miss!

Bar La Mine – Brilliantly located in the heart of the action at Plagne 1800, English pub Bar la Mine has DJs and live music, TVs showing live sport and a mining theme. It also has an enormous selection of beers, ciders and wines. It is a popular après spot, so there is always a lively and friendly atmosphere, but there is also plenty of space to sit down and talk or watch the game. The venue is right next to the slopes, making it the perfect place to meet after a long day on the slopes.

Igloo Igloo – This is a funky bar that’s designed like an igloo, and is found inside Plagne Centre’s Galérie du Pelvoux. Step inside and you will be blown away by the neon colours and icy decor, featuring half life-sized polar bears and penguins. Igloo Igloo is a premier spot for DJs and live bands, but you can also sit down on the faux-ice white seats and sip on a homemade cocktail. There are even complimentary nibbles if you get there early, and many patrons comment on the friendliness of the staff.

Le Luna Bar – If you’re looking for a cool rustic-style pub with dim lights, lots of seating and a chilled out atmosphere with occasional live music, Le Luna Bar is the right place for you. It offers a refreshing change of pace from the clubs, which can be hard to have a conversation in. I really like this bar because it has fun pub games on hand, such as table football, darts and pool. Beers, whiskies, cocktails, wines and non-alcoholic drinks are all on the menu, and it is a great spot for a relaxed drink after shredding powder. You can find Le Luna Bar in the Plagne Centre, and is likely to be just a stone’s throw away from your catered chalet. La Plagne regulars often cite this as the best establishment for a relaxed pub in the area.

Bar le 5 a 7 Siete – Bar le 5 a 7 Siete is located in La Plagne Soleil/Village, and is my number one choice for a drink in the area. This cosy wine bar is ideal after a freezing day on the slopes, as you can get comfortable in front of the roaring log fire, sip on your favourite wine and catch up with friends. Alternatively, order tapas and enjoy them out on the brilliant sun terrace, from where you can enjoy lovely views of the surrounding area.

These are just a few of the great drinking establishments, but there are many others to choose from. The best part is that you never have to venture far from your catered cha-let! La Plagne attracts groups of young friends looking for fun yet casual nights out, and it is easy to see why!
