La Folie Douce Après Ski Bar, Chamonix - Centre

The most famous mountain clubbing hotspot in the Alps comes to Chamonix

Featured in: | Updated

La Folie Douce opened in 1980 and it fastly became THE place to be for après-ski on the slopes. This is thanks to their unique combination of live music, DJs, dancers and performers.

Luc Reversade started this venture with a team of just 5 people. Following the bar's success in Val d'Isere, there are now chains in Val Thorens, Meribel and Alpe d'Huez, as well as Megeve, and over 400 people, work together to make La Folie Douce a reality. 

What you will find here is the very best entertainment. The party starts at 16:00 when DJs, singers, dancers and musicians carry the crowd away on an après ski adventure of total Folie. The whole show, somewhere between cabaret and street theatre with singers, big-screen projections and top class light shows all generations can enjoy some Folie fun together.

However, La Folie Douce is more than just an apres-ski bar and offers delicious food in their four restaurants. Their main eatery is La Fruitière, which serves contemporary cuisine made by Chef Franck Mischler. La Petite Cuisine serves local favourites in a canteen-style space. Le Mayen is where tradition meets culinary boldness or have a taste of Italy at La Piazza. And Le Kiosque Cafe is open daily from 09:00 to 17:00 so you can always pop in for a coffee first thing before returning for après at the end of the day.
