Nightlife in Morzine
Discover the top Morzine nightlife
Morzine wouldn't be the resort that it is without a good dose of après-ski to end the day with! There is no shortage of places to go for a few drinks and some live music after a day on the mountain.
Whether you prefer to soak up the late afternoon sun with a quiet glass of French wine or dance on the tables in your ski boots, beer jug in hand, Morzine has plenty of great spots when the lifts shut for the day.
With a lively and vibrant après-ski scene, Morzine has plenty of spots opening their doors to welcome you off the pistes.
For some après action whilst up on the mountain, head to Inferno, a popular restaurant/bar found on the Nyon plateau. It throws big parties with bands playing on its branded double decker bus on the terrace overlooking Morzine and the surrounding mountains. You’ll find people dancing on tables in ski boots and really enjoying themselves before skiing down the hill in time for dinner.
At the base of the Pléney, L’Aubergade Hotel regularly hosts après events, from big charity events to sausage festivals - you’re likely to find something a little different going on at this piste-side venue. Local bands like the CAB Collective make regular appearances there and the team at the Aubergade certainly know how to throw a party. Also at the base of the Pleney and one of Morzine’s most popular après haunts, Le Tremplin usually has a DJ playing so it’s a great place to go to get the party started. Although be warned, if you start at the Tremplin there’s a high risk of you might not want to head home for dinner...après often quickly becomes an accidental late night after starting there.
One of the most popular and famous bars in Morzine to head to for some après is Bar Robinsons, known more commonly around these parts as 'Robbos'. It’s a no frills spot on the Rue du Bourg with the main pull coming in the shape of the beer it serves. The only beer on tap in Robbos is Mutzig, and we’re not talking about the watered down version you get in some resorts, this is the real thing. At 8% you’ll know when you’ve had a couple. And once you’ve had enough Mutzig but aren’t quite ready to go home, then Chez Roger is a great next stop off. It’s just up the road from Robbos and is great for an early evening drink or for a session that goes well into the night. Run by a local legend, Chez Roger’s is a cheap, cheerful place to hangout after a day on the slopes. Drinks are served with cheesy nachos as well so if you’re feeling a little peckish it’s a welcome extra.
In Prodains, La Kinkerne holds regular parties as punters come off the slopes of Avoriaz. It’s well worth heading up to if you fancy a bit of lively après.
If you're looking for some late night fun you're in luck, there are several bars and clubs that stay open until the early hours of the morning. In fact most of Morzine’s bars stay open until 02:00, and there are a couple of places that carry on the party for even longer than that.
A great starter spot for an evening drink or two is Le Crepu, and you’ll often find yourself there for a lot longer than you’d originally planned. The team know how to start the party, and as and when you leave turn right and bars such as The Tibetan Cafe, Coyote Bar and The Cavern are right on your doorstep. The Sherpa Bar serves local ales and seems to be a popular place for a late evening pint or two. It also often throws live music and quiz nights, making it a good place to go to if you want an easy going drink or two.
Quickly becoming one of the most popular venues in town Café Chaud hosts some of the biggest parties on the mountain, so you’re bound to have a good time if you head here. They like their alternative music, so you could find DnB, upbeat house, funk, world music or live bands on your visit.
There are only two clubs in Morzine, l'Opera is open until 05:00 and Le Paradis starts at 23:00 until 05:00.
If you're looking for a more civilised evening or have something to celebrate, there are several hotel bars in the resort that cater to wine enthusiasts, cocktail aficionados and casual drinkers alike, and many will also have live music. Some offer a little snack alongside your choice of beverages, ranging from a bowl of nibbles to an entire tapas board.
A great place to test out some local wines and cheeses whilst watching the sun go down behind the mountains is Coup de Coeur. The wine list features French wines including a number from the local Mont Blanc area (including Swiss and Italian wines). They also have a great pizza menu if you’re looking for a bite to eat. It has a heated terrace with views of both the Pléney and the Nyon mountains, ideal for watching the ski school torchlit descent on Tuesdays.
A popular restaurant in Morzine with a downstairs wine bar, The Chaudanne is a relatively hidden gem. It’s a glitzy addition to the wine bar scene in Morzine and serves a small menu of tapas as well as a good selection of wines. Many people choose to head here before having a meal in the restaurant above, however it’s a great place to visit if you’re looking for somewhere for a drink on a special occasion or for something a little upmarket.
Live music is not that hard to find in Morzine. From the smallest bar to the swanky hotel lounges, there's always something on. In fact, you’ll be pleased to know that the band scene here has really taken off over the last couple of years. Most nights of the week you’ll be able to find a bar offering some form of live music whether it’s a band, a DJ or a local singer. You’ll also find the odd open mic night if you fancy joining in yourself! Specific information regarding weekly line ups can be easily found by simply looking at any of the numerous information boards around resort, where each of the individual bars will post their weekly programmes and promotions.
The original live music venue and still going strong Dixie Bar's Irish band 'the Dixie Micks' can often be found gigging there and they’re a band not to be missed. Dixies is also a great place to head to for live sport. If there’s an important football match happening, you’re likely to be able to catch it here.
A surprisingly successful live music venue, in the day Beanies is a popular coffee bar serving hot drinks and delicious cakes, but by night it’s a wine bar often hosting singers like Amy Dearlove and bands like Zuri Aura.
Remaining at the top of the live music venue list in Morzine, Inferno is a popular restaurant/bar found on the Nyon plateau, so usually somewhere to head for a bit of an après party. It throws big parties with bands playing on its branded double decker bus on the terrace overlooking Morzine and the surrounding mountains. You’ll find people dancing on tables in ski boots and really enjoying themselves before skiing down the hill in time for dinner.
