5 of the best bars in Arc 1950

Thu September 28, 2023

We understand that for many guests an important part of their ski holiday is enjoying an après ski beer or dancing the night away into the early hours.

Here’s our shortlist of the 5 best bars in and around Arc 1950.

Don’t forget to ask your Chalet Host for advice on which venues are the best. They will after all, probably have frequented most of them!

1. George’s Wine Bar (Arc 1950 - under new management this winter)

George’s Wine Bar is a popular, convivial spot to enjoy a post-skiing debrief. Aside from their impressive wine collection, they also sell a large selection of beers from around the globe.

2. O’Chaud – Bar club (Arc 1950)

This modern, yet cosy, lounge-bar offers a relaxing environment in the day and a lively party scene by night. With a high standard of food, drinks and music, it’s a brilliant place to dance the night away. They regularly host events throughout the winter, opening daily between 15:00 and 03:00. Make sure you check out their cocktail menu!

3. Pub Les Belles Pintes (Arc 1950)

It doesn’t matter how far you travel, there always seems to be an Irish pub around the corner. With a wide selection of draught beers, wines and live music, les Belles Pintes is a great place to unwind after skiing and you will no doubt be able to catch the latest sporting events on a big screen. Don’t miss out on Happy Hour between 16:00 and 17:00 every day.

4. Le Chalet de Luigi (Arc 1950)

Chalet Luigi is the perfect spot from which to enjoy some delicious Italian specialities and an extensive collection of fine wines. Around 15:00 the restaurant transforms into a lively après ski party and this atmosphere continues throughout the evening and on into the night with great live music, DJs and discos running until the early hours of the morning.

5. La Folie Douce (Arc 1800)

The infamous Folie Douce rightly deserves its reputation as one of the best après ski destinations in the area. It's worth popping down to Arc 1800 to enjoy the live music, cabaret and ultimate après-ski party! Dancing on the tables – optional...

Of course, there is a 6th bar to add to the list… our very own Bear Lodge bar & lounge.

Whether you’re staying in our hotel or chalets we’d love to see you for an après ski or pre-dinner drink. We have a selection of beers, cocktails and soft drinks, and our attentive staff waiting to hear about your day on the slopes.

See you in Bear Lodge.
