Where you eat, drink and party depends on where in Les Arcs you stay, as it is split up into 6 ski resorts. However, late-night travel is available for those looking to experience Les Arcs nightlife and some are at walking distance, although you should only do so in the light of day.
Below are some of the best Les Arcs nightlife bars and restaurants to visit.
You can't ski all day on an empty stomach, so you do need to find somewhere to eat.
If you are at the top of Arc 2000, we recommend Les Chalet de l'Arc. Set in a traditional wooden chalet, this is home to crackling open fires for the frostbitten skier and an open terrace for those who want to sit outside if the weather is warm. They serve traditional French cuisine with large chunks of their own homemade bread and they are well known for their pasties which are stuffed with sausage, cabbage and plenty of Beaufort cheese.
Another popular place to visit is L' Ancolie, which is in the village of Nancroix. It is slightly expensive, but you do get to munch on rib steaks, venison, fondue, locally foraged berries, and much more besides at this restaurant located in a very romantic setting.
If you have survived the 7km ski run from the Aiguille Rouge, you should definitely stop off at La Ferme in La Pré de Villaroger in the hamlet of Villaroger for some fondue. And if you're hankering after something simple, you might want to try the Red Rock Cafe up at Arc 2000 for some good olf-fashioned burgers and fries.
These are just a few highlights, but there are plenty of other eating places at Les Arcs for all culinary tastes.
When it comes to Les Arcs nightlife, you are spoiled for choice.
Arc 1800 nightlife is particularly recommended if you're looking to party. The Red Hot Saloon has (according to their website) an unrivalled party atmosphere with live music, late into the night happy hours, fast food, and a bustling dance floor. Arc 1800 is also home to Les Arcs biggest night club, the Apokalypse which stays open until 4 am, so if you still have energy after skiing, this might be your go-to place to party. There are other great spots in this area too, most notably The O'Chaud Lounge Bar which attracts a lot of famous DJs and musicians, and which offers a great selection of cocktails and wines.
And in other places of the resort, we recommend Les Belles Pintes at Arc 1950 which is a great Irish bar serving plenty of fine beers, and at Arc 2000, there is the El Latino Loco if you want live music, Mexican food, and some incredible-tasting cocktails.
Again, these are just a few examples, but wherever you are at Les Arcs, you are sure to find a bar or nightclub that suits your particular tastes.
So, come for the skiing, stay for the nightlife. At Les Arcs, you really do have it all!Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
