5 of the best bars in Les Arcs 1950

Thu September 28, 2023

The Les Arcs 1950 nightlife is something to behold and perfect for those who put enjoying an après ski beer or dancing the night away into the early hours high on the priority list of their ski holiday.

You should also ask your Chalet Host for advice on which venues are the best. They will, after all, probably have frequented most of them! But to give you an idea of what’s on the other side before you grab your flight, here are 5 of the best bars in and around Arc 1950.

1. 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 also been dubbed as the nightclub ‘made in Arc 1950’, so it's a brilliant place to dance the night away.

The O’Chaud bar regularly hosts events throughout the winter, with music ranging from R’n’B to house and a daily opening time of 15:00 - 03:00.

Plan your trip to O’Chaud’s:

  • Opening Times: 3pm – 3am (Winter only)
  • Prime Time: Thursday Night
  • Speciality: Cocktails

Here’s a peek into what a night at O’Chaud’s looks like…

2. Pub Les Belles Pintes (Arc 1950)

With a wide selection of draught beers, wines and live music, Les Belles Pintes is a great place to unwind after skiing with a taste of Ireland. ‘Dublin’ down on that traditional pub vibe, you’ll also be able to catch live sports on the big screen and enjoy a round of darts or pool.

Oh, and make sure you don’t miss out on Happy Hour between 16:00 and 17:00 every day.

Plan your trip to Les Belles Pintes:

  • Opening Times: 11am - 12pm
  • Prime Time: Tuesday Afternoon
  • Speciality: Pints!

3. 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 on the large south-facing balcony. 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.

Plan your trip to Le Chalet de Luigi:

  • Opening Times: 9am - 10pm
  • Prime Time: Sunday Afternoon
  • Speciality: Italian cuisine

4. La Folie Douce (Arc 1800)

Although this one is technically not in Les Arcs 1950, La Folie Douce gets an honourable mention as it's worth popping down to Arc 1800 to enjoy the live music, cabaret, and ultimate après-ski party! Dancing on the tables – optional. The infamous Folie Douce rightly deserves its reputation as one of the best après ski destinations in the area.

They have a packed schedule too with DJ’s and clubbing every day and huge event parties every Friday - just see for yourself on their Instagram page @foliedoucelesarcs

Plan your trip to La Folie Douce:

  • Opening Times: 9am – 8:30pm
  • Prime Time: Wednesday Evening
  • Speciality: Huge parties & DJ’s

5. The Bear Lodge Bar & Lounge

Last but far from least, the bar and lounge of the Bear Lodge is one of the most popular drinking spots to unwind after a long day on the slopes. The classy, modern decor is the perfect setting to enjoy a fancy cocktail or a tasty meal to warm your insides.

The ski in/ski out lodge has more to dazzle you with than just cocktails too, there’s also a spa, pool, and cinema room.
