Discover 5 of the Best Bars in Chamonix

When you arrange a transfer from Geneva to Chamonix, the main activity on your mind will be skiing. However, after a hard day on the slopes, the perfect way to chill out in the evening is to visit one of the numerous bars in the resort. Here is a guide to five of the best bars here, where you can either put your feet up or hit the dance floor at the end of the day.

1. Le Lapin Agile
This bar is known for its excellent wine selection as well as its delicious menu. With a focus on pasta and typical Italian cuisine, this is the ideal place to stop for a meal and a glass of wine to relax in the evening. Despite being quite small, especially from the outside, for those in the know this is one of the best bars in the resort and one of the first places you should check out following your shuttle ride from Geneva to Chamonix.

2. Slalom Bar
This cosy bar has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere, making it the perfect place to head to straight after you end your skiing for the day and want to enjoy some apr├Ęs ski. With large armchairs to slouch back in, you can enjoy some live music, live sports and a happy hour - making it the ideal place to chill out.

3. Le Vert Bar
This is the place to go for a more active night out. It has been named the 'Best Bar' in the resort on a number of occasions, and welcomes numerous guest DJs throughout the year. The fun starts at 4 p.m. and carries on until late, and there is also a large plasma screen for live sports.

4. Les Rhododendrons
This bar opened in 2009 and has been one of the most popular places in the resort ever since, so make sure you check it out when you arrive following your transfer from Geneva to Chamonix. You will find it on the roundabout next to the Flegere cable car, and inside there is a cosy atmosphere complete with a log fire. Pick up a newspaper, sit back and watch some live sports, or, if the weather is good, head to the terrace for some live music and to watch the sun setting.

5. Les Caves du Pele
This is one of the best wine bars in the resort and it is located right in the centre of the action. It has a great atmosphere and plenty of good wines to choose from, and there are also a couple of restaurants upstairs.
These are just a few of the bars that you will find when you arrive in the resort and settle in after your transfer from Geneva to Chamonix. Whether you spend every night in the same one, or you decide to try them all out for yourself, they make an excellent way to end the day after all that time on the slopes!
