Meribel is renowned for its lively après ski scene and sophisticated drinking spots. From booming youth-filled clubs to relaxed and elegant wine bars, Meribel nightlife is anything but mundane.
To separate the average from the extraordinary, we’ve curated a list of the best bars and drinking establishments in Meribel, so you can make the most out of every night of your holiday.
Best Après Ski Bars in Meribel
First up, is our top picks of après ski bars. For post-skiing drinks on the mountain with a dynamic atmosphere, look no further;
La Folie Douce Meribel
An après-ski bar that’s nothing short of a magnet for young and beautiful folk from all over the world, La Folie Douce also happens to be blessed with one of the most stunning locations right on the side of the mountain. It’s certainly one place where you know exactly what you’re going to get – explosive parties, booming music and buzzed boarders dancing on the tables. It’s quite a show after a morning on the mountain!
If this sounds a little too lively, there’s always the VIP area to retreat to.
Opening times: Open every day from 14th December-April until 5pm
Address: Intermediare 1 Saulire Express 73550
Le Rond Point Meribel
If you’re looking for a live music, a great happy hour and a stunning view of the valley, Le Rond Point is a popular après bar. Their ‘Ronnie Loves Music’ festival is now in its sixth year and attracts revellers from across the Three Valleys and beyond. You can even arrange for a private party or wedding celebration to be held on the romantic terrace.
We recommend getting yourself a table as early as possible as there tends to be a massive rush of people piling in from La Folie Douce when it closes at 5:00pm.
Opening times: Every day from 9am-7pm during winter season
Address: Le Rond Point, Route de Belvédère, 73550
La Terrasse la Brasserie du Village
For après ski snacks or a rum infused hot chocolate, head to La Terrasse la Brasserie. With a beautiful sun terrace and a view to match, this place makes a great stop off on your way back into town.

With live bands and themed nights on the agenda, this Meribel bar is a fun spot to sip an exquisite cocktail (or three).

An interesting place with plenty to offer, Barometer bar and restaurant feels a little like a combination of a rustic English pub with a classy wine bar, in the best way. It never gets quite as hectic or rowdy as some of its neighbouring haunts, though they do tend to get a bit liberal with the music volume later on in the evening.
Choose from a satisfying menu of French classics such as snails or foie gras or sample one of their famous pizzas before working your way through the impressive wine list.
Opening times: Every day from 12-1am
