Après-ski in La Plagne

Après-ski in La Plagne


The centre of activity after dark is in the newest resort area of Belle Plagne, mainly aimed at the younger crowd and comprising a good choice of bars, a disco and clubs offering live music, decent food and loads of alcoholic options. For dedicated night owls, the Saloon Bar shut around 04:00 and  La Plagne 1800’s focal point is The Mine, complete with walls hung with mining artefacts and a small train, as well as great beer and loud live music. Monica’s Pub in Plagne Soliel is popular, as is the disco at Plagne Centre and No’Bleme for its home–made rum. Aime La Plgne is quiet, and the rest of the resorts – with the exception of the Club Med complexes, with their laid-on entertainment and parties – concentrate mainly on restaurants rather than open-all-hours joints.

The casual day and eventide eateries are the places to head for here, combining good food at reasonable prices with friendly service. Cuisine varies from meat-heavy meals, through the ever-popular pizzas to traditional Savoyard dishes. The desserts here are particularly delicious. The mountain restaurants, many set in traditional rustic chalets, give good food and great views, with a number open in the evenings.
