La Folie Douce Bar

The place to be for après-ski in Avoriaz, accessible on foot and by skis!

featured in Bars & clubs Updated

The first Folie Douce opened in 1980 and it quickly became the place to be for après-ski on the slopes. This is thanks to their unique combination of live music, DJs, dancers and performers.

Luc Reversade started this venture with a team of just five people. Following the bar's success in Val d'Isere, there are now chains in Val Thorens, Meribel, Alpe d'Huez, Chamonix and Megeve, with over 400 people working together to make La Folie Douce a reality.

What you will find here is the very best entertainment. The party starts at 16:00 when DJs, singers, dancers and musicians carry the crowd away on an après ski adventure of total Folie. The whole show, somewhere between cabaret and street theatre with singers, big-screen projections and top class light shows, so all generations can enjoy some Folie fun together.

However, La Folie Douce is more than just an apres-ski bar and offers delicious food in their two restaurants. Their main eatery is La Fruitière, which serves contemporary cuisine made by Chef Franck Mischler. La Petite Cuisine serves local favourites in a more informal canteen-style space. Le Fruitiere is open everyday for lunch from 12:00 to 15:00, with dinner service from 19:00, while La Petite Cuisine is open from 11:30 to 15:00. The apres bar is open daily from 14:00 to 18:00.
