With a lively and vibrant après-ski scene, Alpe d'Huez has plenty of spots opening their doors to welcome you off the pistes.
One of the highlights is the legendary La Folie Douce, located at the top of the Marmottes 1 chair, it has a large south facing deck from which you can see across to Les Deux Alpes. Après 'Folie style' gets going from 14:30 until the lifts close around 16:30, and offers high-energy live music performances from a range of DJs, singers and musicians accompanied by dancers and acrobatic performers in crazy costumes.
Another highlight is Smithy's Tavern, a British-style pub that's popular for a pint of beer off the slopes, it has a relaxed fun atmosphere and is popular with locals and tourists alike. Located below Smithy's Tavern is the Zoo Bar, small in size but big in atmosphere. A warm welcome is assured here and you can play pool and darts as well. If you're looking for something a little more cool, try The Underground Bar, and enjoy its laid-back vibes, tasty cocktails and bar snacks.
