Our Top Eight Morzine Bars: Everything you need to know
Want to find out more about why we’ve chosen these bars as our favourites? Here’s why:
The best bar in Morzine for covering all bases
Cavern is the best bar in Morzine to go to if you’re looking for a lively party and you’re in the mood to dance in your ski boots. It’s also the ideal bar if you want to be in the centre of town - just in case you want to hop across the road for a round of pool at Coyote Bar. Or you could walk one minute down the road to Tibetan if you feel like more of a lounge-bar feel. Cavern really offers everything – from live music to DJ sets – and, as the unofficial gateway to L’Opera, it's open late, so you can even head back after dinner for a groove on the dance floor.
The best bar in Morzine for après off the mountain
By day, Le Tremplin is a chilled hotel-come-bar serving delicious lunches for people popping down the Pleney run for a bite to eat. By 4pm, the tables turn – quite literally. The DJs start spinning their decks and the pints start pouring. People start climbing on to tables, moving to electro-swing and the best mountain beats. The party continues all the way until 8pm, making it one of the latest running après sessions in Morzine – and the perfect stop off if you're looking to carry your post-ski party right up to dinner.
The best bar in Morzine for post-dinner drinks
It’s time for a night out in town – but you don’t want to head to the dance floor straight away, especially because you’re full after a delicious three course meal cooked for you by Chalet Heavenly's chef. Tibetan has more of a chilled lounge feel, so it’s a great place for big groups to head to for some casual drinks before you feel the party vibes kicking in. Previous Chalet Heavenly groups have indulged in magnums of Grey Goose, Champagne, and delicious cocktails – and then continued the night until the early hours at L’Opera down the road.
4. Café Chaud
The best bar in Morzine for drum and bass
It’s true – Café Chaud isn’t for everyone. But it is an absolute hotspot for locals and chalet guests who are looking for a more alternative music scene. While L’Opera is perfect for those who want to boogie to the latest club tunes, Café Chaud is the best bar in Morzine for those who like to experience the dirtier side to music. With seasonnaires and locals throwing their wildest shapes to the early hours, and drinks some of the cheapest in town, Café Chaud is not for the faint-hearted.
5. Happy Hours
The best bar in Morzine for access to Montriond
Technically, Happy Hours is situated closer to Avoriaz than it is Morzine, but when it’s the closest après bar to Chalet Heavenly, we can’t keep it off the list. Happy Hours sits at the bottom of the Ardent ski lift – the closest Avoriaz access point for people staying in Montriond and the villages surrounding Morzine. The bar is extremely popular with seasonnaires and throws some great parties, with live DJs turning tables on its terrace.
6. Dixie Bar
The best bar in Morzine for live music
It’s not all about the DJ sets, and those in search of the feet stomping live music après in Morzine can often rely on Dixie Bar to provide that. The home of Irish band Dixie Micks, there’s a long-standing understanding that if the band are in town, Dixie Bar is not to miss. And when the band isn't in town, keep an eye out on the sign as you walk up Morzine high street for any live music that they have going on – you really don’t want to miss out on the atmosphere.
The best bar in Morzine for partying until the early hours
It’s true – most people don’t head to L’Opera until they’re ready for their last stop of the night. This means the club doesn’t really start filling up until 11pm. But when it does – it’s good vibes all round until the very early hours. Like any club, the drinks prices are extortionate – but in return, you get a dance floor full of people giving their all to the best club tunes and chart hits. If the alternative music scene is more your vibe, then Café Chaud at the other end of the town could be the place for you.
8.Chez Roger and the Strip
The best bar in Morzine for a chilled beer
If you’re looking to enjoy a civilised pint in a buzzing atmosphere, Chez Roger is probably the bar for you. It’s a proper locals bar, with the French landlord giving you that French-style slightly brush-offish service. But if you’re looking for a place for decently priced pints and a chilled, yet buzzy atmosphere, Chez Roger – or Rogers at it’s known to locals – is a great option. For those looking for a bit of a bar crawl, try Bar Robinson and Dixie Bar at the same time – they’re all on the same street and all bring something slightly different to the après table.
