For slopeside convenience and a more traditional pub feel we suggest you head to Marmot Arms in Tignes Le Lac, situated at the bottom of the palafour lift 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 apres into the late evening. For a more stylish Apres and a cosy drink by the fire then Le Whitney Bar is the place to go. Enjoy fine wine and gourmet snacks and settle into the comfy sofas.
In Le Lavachet Scotty’s Bar is a lively place popular with English-speaking visitors and has historically been popular with British skiers. A lively après venue with regular live music and big plasma screens for sports. If you are after something a bit smarter or more 'up-market' then head to So Bar where you can enjoy excellent wines, beers, spirits and food. Open until 2am in the morning it's perfect for a quiet apres drink or a late night glass of wine.
Le Loop Bar in Le Lac has a sunny terrace which makes this 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 but unfortunately is often very busy as a result! Right next to the Marmot Arms, you will find the Jam Bar. A great place to have a chilled out drink and bite to eat whilst making us of their wifi, a great spot for a relaxing drink with friends and family.
