Whether you're looking to celebrate a fantastic day on the slopes with a quiet beer or two or party in your ski boots, Meribel has some great bars to take care of all your apres-ski needs. Here are a few of our recommendations:
Jack's is a great spot for apres, just off the Chaudanne in Meribel centre it has with live music every afternoon from 5-7pm and a happy hour just beforehand to warm you up.
Evolution is Jack's sister bar which does apres a little more sedately. Relax with an expertly mixed cocktail (we recommend their espresso martini or mojito), a glass of wine or beer. There's no live music so if you want to chill out after a day on the slopes this is a great choice.
Under new management (Jez), La Terrasse in Meribel Village, offers a daily happy hour, live music most days of the week, cocktails, live sport, bar snacks all day, lovely staff and we do minibus pickups from there!
The Ronnie is one of our favourite apres venues. It is just off the piste below the mid-station of the Rhodos lift on the Saulire side and catches the sun on its terrace until late in the afternoon. You can apres here all afternoon but things really kick off when the bands or DJs start.
The Folie specialises in its parties on the slopes which it does every afternoon between 3-5pm. DJs, musicians, dancers and champagne showers make it a pretty spectacular party.
Based in Les Allues, just a short walk from our chalets, apres is a fairly relaxed affair starting at 5pm.
Location-wise it's just off the Chaudanne so handy for an apres beer or two.

Although quite a few of the bars are open late, there are 2 venues in Meribel in which to dance until the not so small hours:
