Le Vagabar, Chamonix - Centre

Friendly bar with cosy log fire and sunny terrace
Featured in: Bars & Clubs · Updated


This bar is situated just beyond the end of the main pedestrian street in Chamonix and is full of character. 

Set within a popular hostel, this building used to be a stop-over for stagecoaches en-route to Switzerland over 100 years ago. Nowadays, LE VAGABAR™ continues to provide shelter and refreshment to tired and thirsty travellers (and local tradespeople!) who appreciate the warm and welcoming comforts of the bar.

In winter time, the beer flows and the log fire roars, whilst during the summer months, a drink on their sunny terrace is a must where you will find one of the finest views of Mont Blanc in the valey. You'll often find a lively, upbeat and friendly crowd in the bar who are complemented by the regularly returning locals and sprightly seasonnaires.

As well as serving a wide selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks, they also offer a modest menu of bar food and snacks from 17:00 to 21:30 daily and provide some of the best value accommodation in the valley.

It is great place to head to after an active day on the mountain for a relaxing chilled out drink, a game of darts or a bit of an apres ski party depending on the night. The bar also run quizzes on a regular basis and often shows sporting events on their satellite TV.
