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!
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.
Sunset and early evening
With a lively and vibrant après-ski scene, Morzine has plenty of spots opening their doors to welcome you off the pistes.
At the base of the Pleney and one of Morzine’s most popular après haunts, Le Tremplin usually has a DJ or band 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. Le Tibetan Café has a great après vibe with cocktails and live music. If it's a good glass of wine you enjoy for après-ski then head off to Le Coup de Coeur wine Bar on the main square in the centre of Morzine.
In Ardent, Happy Hours bar at the bottom of the Ardent cable car directly below the Lindarets ski area holds regular parties as you come off the slopes of Avoriaz. It’s well worth heading there if you fancy a bit of lively après.
