Après Ski in Courchevel



Courchevel is not well renowned for its lively apres ski, and although it does not rival the likes of Val d’Isere or St Anton, it does hold its own. There are only a few mountain restaurants which stay open for apres so everyone heads into the bars on the main high street of the resorts. Many of the bars have live music which encourages lots of dancing and drinking until the early hours. Courchevel 1650 and 1850 are closeby one other, so it is possible to take a short taxi ride for a change of scene. 1550, 1650 and 1850 are all linked by a public bus service that runs until after midnight.

We have been lucky enough to sample the best of the bars that both Courchevel 1550, 1650 and 1850  have to offer and produce a list of the ones that we would recommend going to; they each stand out for their own reason, but you better go and test a few to see which you like best...


The ‘real’ apres ski bar of Courchevel

Ku de ta –Bar/Restaurant   1850  
Without this piste side bar, Courchevel would lack a popular après ski venue, all other resorts have their big name bars and nowhere else in Courchevel really caters for the big party atmosphere. The bar is located next to the Forum building in the centre of the resort,  so from 4pm onwards or before if you finish skiing, the party starts here. You'll find funky live bands and chilled out ambiances and whilst you are drinking why not have a late afternoon snack of tapas and crepes to go with your vin chaud or hot punch. There is also a vodka bar, what else do you possibly need to start the après ski?
For the sports fans they have Sky Sports and show all the big games throughout the week or any other big sporting events that generates interest like the Grand National, Boat Race, Football and lots more. The prices are not crazy typical Courchevel prices and so it appeals to everyone not just the elite, there is something for everyone.



Most popular nightclub – all nationalities

Les Caves –  Bar/Nightclub     1850    


This nightclub is situated near the entrance of Courchevel 1850. This is the place to go once all the other bars have run their course; people from all nationalities tend to end up here to carry on the evening. Look out for the big pink door! Les Caves often have weekly events such as guest DJs playing a variety of sets. This bar is not only popular with the tourists but also with the locals, it is however not for those on a budget, as drinks are quite expensive. The Coyote restaurant and bar is situated above Les Caves, decorated in cow skin and Parisian themed,  for a change of scene.


Perfectly situated in the sun & at the bottom of the piste

Le Tremplin – Bar/Restaurant    1850    


Le Tremplin is perfectly situated at the bottom of the ski runs in Courchevel 1850, making it the ideal location to stop for an après drink. With its large terrace you can sit back and relax with a drink, whilst basking in the sun. They often have live music playing from 4pm daily, and with very efficient table service you don’t even need to leave your seat.



Late night dancing in 1650

Funky Fox –   Bar/Restaurant/Pub  1650            

Located next door to Sport Gliss, near the Sherpa supermarket at the top end of Courchevel 1650. This is the bar that everyone tends to end up at the closing stages of the night with dancing going on until 4am. The Funky Fox doesn’t really get busy until later on in the evening, people head here after the other bars run their course.

The Funky Fox offers everything you could want from a night out in the Alps, from live music and DJ’s to pool tables and even a Wii competition. They have a monthly drum and bass night which draws in not only the tourists but a lot of the locals, this is one of the most popular nights in Courchevel 1650. You can also watch all the big sporting events on their projector screen, whilst enjoying a few drinks. This however is one of the more expensive bars in Couchevel 1650, but still doesn’t reach the pricey heights of 1850.



The perfect bar for cheap beer and nachos

Le Bubble - Bar  1650          

By their own admission this bar is a 'coffee sipping, Mutzig slurping, Nacho munching, Ski boot dancing, late night buzzing kind of place;' says it all really!

Great bar, great staff!
