Places to Drink in Verbier


Verbier is just as famous for its buzzing après scene as for its great skiing. However, considering its size and reputation, Verbier isn’t overburdened with bars and clubs. We think that the scene in Verbier is near perfect – ranging from full-on, hang-from-the-rafters après-ski hang-outs to the kind of mellow, groovy cocktail bar where you can have a conversation without shouting yourself hoarse.

The après ski is concentrated in a relatively small number of venues. Most of those are in the centre of the resort within a short stagger of Place Centrale.

On the slopes

The Ice Cube bar
Just below Les Ruinettes, with panoramic terrace and resident DJ, the Ice Cube bar has quickly established itself as top spot for scenic, dancey drinks on the mountain before that final run down.

Bar 1936
Found just above the bottom of the Mayentzet chair, Bar 1936 is a little mellower and consists of a couple of Mongolian yurts with a carpet of sunloungers on the snow outside. Great for watching the sun set, with beer in hand. Inside are big squishy sofas and a cosy wood stove.

Le Rouge
Technically not in fact on the slopes but situated at the bottom of the eponymous ‘red’ piste, is Verbier’s après melting pot, where fur and Gore-Tex meet in a dozen languages and all ages. Not to be missed. Rue de Ransou 37, 1936 Verbier.

Pub Mont Fort
A half-minute climb up from the bottom of the piste, the Pub Mont Fort attracts a younger crowd, popular with Brits and instructors post-work, and invariably heaving. There’s a terrace, giant TV showing sports, and billiards. A popular choice for chalet staff on their evenings off.

In Resort

Cosy, four-metre sunken fireplace downstairs, stylish cocktail bar with balcony upstairs. Route de Verbier Station 55, 1936 Verbier.

Nelson Pub
Centrally located in Verbier and popular with locals, The Nelson Pub has small TVs and an automated betting console for trotting races. Yes, you read that correctly. Place Centrale, 1936 Verbier.

Overlooking Place Centrale, the sound of live bands can be heard pounding from the glassed-in terrace of the Farinet from late afternoon to early evening, as revellers dance on the bar inside in ski boots. The adjacent lounge bar offers squishy sofas, waitress service and the prospect of an audible conversation. Place Centrale, 1936 Verbier.

Crock No Name
This cosy bar just uphill towards Savoleyres is calmer, serves innovative cocktails, and lets its expensively coiffed hair down at weekends with live music from 10:30pm. A little pricier than some other places, it’s definitely the better place to be if you prefer a slightly quieter evening. Route des Creux 22, 1936 Verbier.

Casbah nightclub
Having moved a couple of doors from its original home under the Farinet, Casbah has retained its North African décor and youthful energy. Attracting a younger crowd and offering more reasonable prices than the Farm Club, the Casbah has carved a reputation for itself in the last few years as the absolute late-night party central in Verbier. Often filled to capacity, come early if you don’t want to queue. Place Centrale, 1936 Verbier.

The Farm Club
Now in its fifth decade, the infamous Farm Club is well worth a visit to experience the chic interior and even chicer clubbers in the Hotel Nevaï. Can get busy, but that just adds to the atmosphere! Route de Verbier Station 55, 1936 Verbier.

Part of the Central Hotel, the “Tbar” doubles as a coffee shop during the day, where English breakfast, soups and sandwiches can be had, and a lively bar every evening. Games can be watched on their large flat-screen TV and live music can be heard on certain nights. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is relaxed. Place Centrale, 1936 Verbier.

Coup d’état
Open in winter only, this bar is owned by the same people as the Pub Mont Fort but has a completely different vibe. Smaller and less crowded, the chic interior, great cocktails, classy drinks menu and chilled out sounds make it a good option if you want a mellow night out with a group of friends. Two minutes walk from Place Centrale, just past the Post Office. Rue de la Poste 20, 1936 Verbier.
