featured in Nightlife guide Updated

Tignes wouldn't be the resort it is without a good dose of après-ski to end the day.

 There is no shortage of places to go for a few drinks and some live music after a day on the mountain.

Whether you prefer to soak up the last of the afternoon sun with a quiet beer or dance on the tables in your ski boots, Tignes has no shortage of great spots on which to set your sights when the lifts shut for the day. 

Loop Bar & Restaurant, Tignes Le Lac


With a lively and vibrant après-ski scene, Tignes has plenty of spots opening their doors to welcome you off the pistes.

In Le Lac, Loop Bar is a lively après bar with a sunny terrace which makes it a great spot for ending the day with a cold beer or two. Overlooking the Trolles black run, the off-piste Lavachet Wall and the Rosset learner slope, you can kick back and watch the action from your deckchair. Later in the evening they frequently have live music and DJs which makes it a busy bar for later on in the night too. For slope side convenience and a more traditional pub feel The Marmot Arms, also in Tignes Le Lac is situated at the bottom of the Palafour lift, where you can enjoy sports on the big screens, draft beers and a simple menu. They also have live music and DJs so it is a great place to go from après into the late evening. Right next to the Marmot Arms, Jam Bar is a great place to have a chilled out drink and bite to eat whilst making use of their WiFi, it's a great spot for a relaxing drink with friends and family.

Late nights

If you're looking for some late night fun you're in luck, there are several bars and clubs in resort that stay open until the early hours, and Tignes has three nightclubs, each with their own distinct look, clientele and atmosphere.

Since Jacks Club changed hands and then sadly closed, Caves du Loop is now THE late-night dancing venue in Le Lac, found underneath the ever popular Loop Bar. This upmarket wine and cocktail cellar bar hosts regular happy hours and live bands and plays funk, soul and upbeat vibes into the small hours.

For clubbing in Val Claret, all your DnB, electro and hip-hop needs are met by Melting Pot.

Sophisticated spots

If you're looking for a more civilised evening or have something to celebrate, there are several hotel bars in the resort that cater to wine enthusiasts, cocktail aficionados and casual drinkers alike, and many will also have live music. Some offer a little snack alongside your choice of beverages, ranging from a bowl of nibbles to an entire tapas board.
