La Maison des Artistes, Chamonix

Jazz club in a beautifully restored period house
Featured in: Bars & Clubs Updated

Enjoy live music performances from talented jazz musicians in a very cool venue.

The restored house of Maurice Herzog, mountain guide, leader of the first expedition to conquer an 8000m peak and former mayor of Chamonix. This is truly a piece of mountaineering history, and now you can enjoy a few drinks where the great man once sat. 

With a bar, stage and small lounge area on the ground floor you can enjoy some fantastic performances from up-and-coming as well as established jazz musicians and singers. The bar attracts a diverse crowd, that belies its chique interior. 

It is also a workshop and residence with a recording studio in the basement and lodging for guest musicians upstairs, making this a true muso hangout.

Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 17:00 to 02:00.

The Neighbourhood

Tucked away in a landscaped garden behind the casino in the centre of Chamonix, the Maison is accessible on foot from Rue de la Tour or by car from Rue des Allobroges.
