Camp de Base Café: Nestled in a tranquil corner atop Montchavin village, this brewery bar offers local beers and a range of snacks and tapas. With a quaint terrace perfect for sunlit days, this locale is ideal for après-ski festivities, televised sports events, and game nights.
Le Dos Rond: This bar is renowned for its expansive choice of beer, wine, and gin (it also serves food). Happy hour stretches from 17:00 to 19:00 and is accompanied by live music and televised sporting events.
Les Coches Bars (1450m)
In Les Coches, two bars stand out:
White Lines Bar: Positioned at the village entrance, White Lines is a versatile lounge, pub, and club. Live sports events like Premier League and Champions League football, along with Six Nations rugby, are broadcasted. Herve, the passionate sports enthusiast owner, ensures lively atmospheres, especially on nights with live bands, DJs, and even karaoke. The bar celebrates international days with theme nights and offers games such as darts, table football, and billiards. Open until 2 am.
La Table du Tarin: Beyond being an après-ski bar, it's a restaurant offering live music sessions on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm. Conveniently, there's a free bus shuttling between the two villages until around 10 pm. A popular activity among guests is to take this bus up and later sledge down the hill post festivities.
After enjoying the last chairlift to Le Bonnet in La Plagne Bellecote, with its resident DJ, skiers can halt at Pierre Blanche or Le Poste on their descent. The latter usually features a DJ. Before skiing back to Montchavin, it's customary to visit White Lines in Les Coches village, especially during the happy hour at the ski day's conclusion. On specific days, live bands perform in both village bars. Do inquire about the music genre, timings, and venue.
La Folie Douce: An iconic bar, La Folie Douce has four restaurants, daily afternoon shows, and vibrant club nights. Every day, from 14:00 to 15:00, live artistic performances take centre stage. Situated in Les Arcs 1800 atop the Villards gondola, this spot in Paradiski is a must-visit. However, if you're skiing, ensure you give yourself enough time to return to Montchavin - Les Coches. To stay for club nights, the most economical return route involves a free shuttle bus to Bourg-Saint-Maurice, followed by a taxi. It's worth noting that taxis often decline heavily inebriated groups. La Folie Douce is also accessible by the free Villard gondola or skiing.
