La Clusaz Restaurants, Bars & Apres-Ski

La Clusaz has plenty of good dining options, including delightful authentic Savoyard experiences out of town.

With around 60 restaurants, La Clusaz has plenty of good dining options. For excellent food and wine try La Scierie in the village centre or a little further afield in Les Confins you'll find Le Chalet du Lac, the oldest farm in La Clusaz, serving regional home cooking in a delightful setting - well worth the trip.

Le Grenier and L'Arbe are both excellent restaurants in the heart of the village or, as an informal alternative, try the Ecuelle with its wonderful pizzas and excellent, friendly service. For a really authentic evening the Chalet des Praz, built in 1792 and located on the Cret du Merle piste is a great choice or the Bercail, accessed by snowmobile and very popular for its cosy atmosphere and Savoyard charm.

Night owls can continue until late at Club 18 or at L'Ecluse with its glass dance floor over the river.

La Clusaz Après-Ski

La Clusaz is a fairly chilled place in the evening, not a resort renowned for its après-ski. On the mountain the Relais de l'Aiguille is a good choice for a drink at the end of skiing as are many of the bars on the home trail at Cret de Merle, particularly late in the season when the weather is warm.

Off the mountain a great meeting place is the Caves du Paccaly, a delightful rustic bar in the village centre with scrubbed tables and old wood decor.

For those wanting to chill-out try the Grenier, very popular with locals and featuring a big fireplace and wooden platters of Savoyard and Mexican canapes. Other lively bars include the Salto, the Pressoir, popular for sports coverage, and La Braise with its excellent selection of wines, a very popular bar with resort staff.

The tourist office offers weekly complementary vin chaud in the Place de l'Eglise and four times each winter the lifts stay open for all-night skiing under the full moon. The wackiest event of all is the Defi-Foly in April in which competitors use any sliding device they choose to tackle an insanely steep slope into Lac des Confins. He/she who travels furthest across the water before submerging is the winner!
