Apres Ski in Tignes

Apres ski in tignes

Tignes has a wide option of après ski available due to the many different villages in the area, however the biggest draw is still the world renowned après ski bar, the ‘Folie Douce’. With the après ski entertainment kicking off at 3pm every day there is time to party all afternoon until the call comes to jump on the last lift to take you back over towards Tignes and Val Claret. Fortunately, those heading back down to Tignes-le-Lac can take the gondola back down, however those going to Val Claret can find their way down the blue or red runs (be warned though as they do tend to get quite bumpy and busy towards the end of the day!). At the Folie Douce, table dancing is a must and

has effectively become a rite of passage for après skiers. But possibly the best thing about this venue are the live performers each day, with DJ’s, dancers, musicians and singers performing every day of the week in rain, sun or snow!

Back down in Tignes there are so many après ski bars that we couldn’t possibly name them all, so instead here is a little selection of our personal favourites around the area; first up has to be the Loop Bar down in Le Lac. With a huge sunny terrace and lots of live music and DJ’s throughout the season, Loop Bar is a hub for entertainment.  If you are looking for something a bit more relaxed, then head for ‘Le Studio’ in Val Claret. Stylish and cosy, Le Studio offers a transition from some of the other bars around Tignes, with a friendly French crowd and a pleasant change in pace from the typical seasonaire vibe elsewhere! 

Last, but by no means least on our shortlist, is L’Embuscade; described by many as a bit of a hidden gem, this cosy French bar is the perfect place to head after a long day on the slopes. With funky music in the background, a pool table and very well-priced drinks there are few places better to head for a good bit of après ski in the Espace Killy. 

The Tignes Nightlife

There are quite a mix of venues for a night out in Tignes, so the best place to go depends solely on your own preferences!  For a more sophisticated evening, Ski d’Or Hotel in Val Claret is a good option. Here you can head to the bar , settle into one of their comfy sofas and enjoy one of the barman’s exquisite cocktails – all whilst watching the sun come down on the glorious Espace Killy ski area. From here, Le Caveau – also in Val Claret – is a great place to head to. Le Caveau also happens to be one of Tignes’ best loved restaurants but it has a lovely little bar area where they attract a host of live music acts coming from all over to perform. Although a little a pricey, Le Caveau attracts a variety of different guests which contributes to a fantastic atmosphere.

At the other end of the spectrum are the nightclubs in Tignes. Val Claret is home to two – Melting Pot and Blue Girl – and Le Lac is home to the other, Jack’s Club. Starting in Val Claret Melting Pot is set underground, and the origin of its name becomes apparent fairly quickly! Despite this, it is a good club with a host of great DJ’s - plus it is the only club in Tignes that has a policy of playing the latest music. Like most nightclubs in the mountains, Melting Pot is quite expensive, but it does attract most of the seasonaires until 4am in the morning when it shuts! Blue Girl on the other hand fills its speakers with an eclectic mix of music, but mainly euro-pop, R’n’B and techno music engulfs the cave like rooms

Further down the mountain in Le Lac is Jack’s Club which offers a rather different experience to the other two nightclubs. With 10 bowling lanes and a games arcade all open until 2am in the morning, and a nightclub which is open until 4am in the morning, you can listen to a mixture of 80’s and dance music in both French and English.
