Val d'Isere Town Centre

Val d’Isere has it all, a charming village with a superb ski area and wild nightlife. Unsurprisingly it’s quite a popular resort especially among the Brits, a place to see and be seen. There is always a great atmosphere in the resort with lots of events and parties to keep you thoroughly entertained. If you can party as hard as you can ski then Val d’Isere may just be the resort for you.

Originally just a small hamlet and farming area Val d’Isere has risen to become one of the premier European skiing destinations. Unlike many resorts it has achieved significant development without losing its charm and appeal. In 1992 the resort part hosted the winter Olympics placing it firmly on the world map and providing funds for a significant facelift and revamp. As well as the Olympics Val d’Isere hosts an annual downhill World Cup and in 2004 hosted the Alpine Ski World Championships making it only the third resort in history to host all three.

Val d'Isere Nightlife

Val d’Isere’s parties are world famous and a serious contender for best resort nightlife in Europe. Much of the action centres around the main street running through the village, during the height of season avoiding the party is harder than finding it! Here are a couple of our favourite spots:

  • The Moris Pub: A great bar with live bands and an energetic atmosphere most nights. Also the place to go for Henry’s Avalanche talk
  • Banana’s: One of the first bars you come to as you come of the slopes it’s unsurprisingly a great après ski spot
  • Cafe Face: Funky little bar with an interesting drinks tariff – beer starts a 2 EU a go at 16:00 and goes up by 20 cents per hour thereafter, a good spot to start the night
  • Dicks T-Bar: An extremely popular, extremely cheesy club which everyone must visit at least once
  • Blue Note: A nice little club which often plays good music

  • The UCPA has its own bar which is slightly cheaper than anywhere else in the resort. It has a pool table, comfy seats and a good atmosphere.
