With live music everyday, Le Rond Point is the ideal spot for a boozy and bustling outdoor après-ski session. Located directly on the main Doron Piste leading down to La Chaudanne, Le Rond Point boasts a huge outdoor terrace with amazing piste views, and perfect for catching the afternoon sun. The venue has a grand band stage for outdoor live après entertainment, as well as a terrace snack shack that serves hot food until 16:00. Easy to reach from the top of the Rhodos gondola or Saulire mid-station, we recommend you get there early to secure a table before the music begins. If skiing home proves a challenge once the venue shuts at 19:00, take the free Altiport-Chaudanne (C) shuttle bus from the bus stop directly above Le Rond Point, it runs every 15-20 minutes.
Also on the mountain is the Folie Douce. It's situated at the mid station of Saulire cable car, close to the Biche and Mauduit pistes. It's like an Ibizan beach party, but on the mountain. Expect club music, champagne, dancing on tables and general revelry. The après-ski fun starts at 15:00, come and watch their amazing crew of artists, acrobat dancers, singers and musicians.
Located a short walk from La Chaudanne and directly opposite the Chaudanne bus stop, Jacks Bar is a resort favourite for après-ski entertainment. Familiar tunes, good-vibes and ideal for saving a buck, Jacks bar features live après music every weekday, and happy hour prices on all spirits, mixers, jugs of beer and vin chaud from 16:00 to 17:00. For those wanting a place to unwind after a hard day on the mountain, they also offer a comfortable lounge area away from the main stage, an arcade machine and free pool table. Hot pizzas, nachos and hot dogs are listed on the bar menu, with kitchen open non-stop from midday-23:00. Wednesday is the biggest day of the week for an après ski session here, boasting a three-band music medley from 17:00-20:30 and an extended pizza happy hour from 21:00-23:00.
With live afternoon music on offer Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, Lodge du Village is your one and only stop for après entertainment in Meribel Village, and definitely worth the short bus ride from Meribel centre. Playing host to some of the best bands in the Alps, LDV is often packed with those making use of the generous happy hour deals, spilling out on to the balcony for breathtaking mountain views. When there is no live music LDV is a great place to hang out; warm, cosy and some of the friendliest staff around make for a great atmosphere. Tasty cocktails, free WiFi, a good value snack menu and live sport on the TV's all contrive to make you stay longer than you anticipated. If you do want to stay for one more (you probably will), there are free buses every 20 minutes to Meribel and Les Allues until midnight. Open every day from 12:00 with food served from 12:00 - 15:00 and 16:00 - 22:00.
