La Tania is generally a more chilled night out, with a smaller selection of restaurants, pubs and bars to choose from than some of the other local resorts. As pints are still available at €5 though, who’s complaining?
Bars in La Tania
A local favourite hangout is Pub Le Ski Lodge, which offers live bands and an animated atmosphere throughout the night. Sport fanatics can also enjoy the major events on a big screen. If you fancy a more upmarket night out, La Taiga offers a wide selection of cocktails amidst a very lively atmosphere and newly opened Chrome Bar promises to be a great hit.
Dining out in La Tania
Pub Le Ski Lodge offers immense helpings of pub food at great value for money with a range of pies, salads, burgers, steaks, pasta and curries on offer. For amazing, local Savoyarde cuisine try out La Taiga, Les Marmottons (savoyarde cuisine and fabulous pizzeria) or there’s always Le Farçon, La Tania’s very own the michelin star restaurant. Alternatively, should you not fancy leaving the comfort of the chalet there is always the option of a takeaway pizza or Indian!
Courchevel 1850 has a very lively nightlife with plenty of bars, restaurants and clubs on offer until the early hours of the morning, however it tends to be relatively pricey.
Les Caves is an trendy nightclub full of upscale clients. Not for those on a budget; water costs about £10 for 250ml, so imagine the price of an actual drink. Nonetheless, it is probably worth a visit as its lively and open until 5am. Le Milk Pub is a trendy French underground après ski bar with live music and Le Kalico is a rather popular bar frequented by tourists and seasonnaires alike which is very busy until the early hours. There is an extensive range of other pubs, bars and restaurants available too.
Closer than Courchevel 1850 is Méribel, which is also host to a lively night life, bars and restaurants. Worth checking out are Dicks T-Bar (open until 4am) or the Ront Point which is a compulsory apres ski stop for live bands at 5pm and toffee vodka. This however, results in a slightly precarious ski to the bottom of the slopes and a taxi home, which will set you back about £25 in the early evening. (Definitely makes up for missing the last lift home to La Tania though!)
Buses from La Tania run until 23.40pm and information on taxi firms and bus timetables can be found in the tourist office.
