The Mouth Bar is in La Plagne centre and has been referred to as a dungeon and a hole in the ground.. not quite but you can see why when you descend the stairs to get in! They have lots of sport on the big screens, raffles, party nights and a good lively apres scene, popular with holiday makers and seasonaires.
Scotty's Bar is a ski-in bar at the bottom of the Stade Olympic run in La Plagne centre. They do snacks and food all day and have regular music and happy hours to draw in the crouds. The burgers are really good and they have a great platter for sharing with friends.

There is often live music on and around après ski time with a DJ taking over on a Tuesday or Wednesday night and the pub also often shows live sporting events. Gets pretty busy for après.
Le Luna Bar, Place de la Cheminée and up the stairs in Plagne Centre. Something different is always happening in the Luna, there are four rooms in the bar and they all have different themes. This bar is great for après or late night drinks but especially for après as the happy hour starts at 5pm and does not finish until 8pm – plenty of time to take advantage of the cheap drinks! There is an extensive menu with loads of shooters and some good whiskeys.
The Last One Pub in Les Coches is a lively choice for après ski drinks. There are often live bands and music from 5pm until 7pm and the place has a great atmosphere.

There is also always a giant screen showing ski/snowboard DVDs or sports matches.
La Tête Inn in Belle Plagne boasts live music every day from 5pm until 7pm (often going on later into the night) during the winter season. It is a great building dating back to 1830 and inside the décor has been kept very traditionally Alpine which is nice as there are a lot of new, more modern bars popping up in La Plagne. There is a happy hour and the bar is open from 4pm – 2am.
Camp de Base Café is situated at the bottom of the Montchavin bubble in the village of Montchavin itself. This is a very small bar which is popular with the locals. Snacks are served all day as is the green Mont-Blanc beer which is made from the Génépi flower that grows high in the mountains – beware its pretty strong!

La Terrasse - located in the Aime 2000 shopping mall. If you are not a huge fan of loud music and want sip your drink somewhere a little quieter, try La Terrasse for après ski. It is popular with the locals and is where you will find the Aime ESF instructors after a hard days work. There is a TV that plays (more French than English) football and you can count on the ambience when football matches are being shown.
