Les Gets' night life has a warm and friendly atmosphere. The ski resort is best described as a mid-sized. There are a good number of bars worth checking out. Many of these host live music and televise big sporting events. The majority of bars are open until 2am, and for those with energy still to burn, there is the Igloo Nightclub Igloo Nightclub — which is open until 5am! If you're looking for a loud party town, then Les Gets might not be for you. For a full picture of what's going on in Les Gets, during your ski holiday, Check out the Les Gets Skiing Holiday website.
Possibly Les Gets' most well known pub, Bar Bush is traditionally the 'go to' spot for seasonnaires finishing their shifts and holiday makers starting their nights out. While relatively small, there always seems to be a lot going on. There's an air of competitiveness in the bar, centered around the darts board at most times of the day and especially during the weekly quiz night (Fridays from 9:30pm). The ideal venue to watch sports (6 nations, football matches, winter events, etc).
It's worth keeping an eye on their winter schedule. Highlights include: themed costume party towards end of January, open mic night in mid February and full-moon UV paint party in the first week of March. Open every day from 4pm.
Great bar for chilling out while watching sports events (3 TV screens with 3 different sports channels). Canadian style decor, huge moose head and a black bear. There's a balcony for smokers, a pool table and a darts board.
There's an outdoor, covered area with large gas heating stands during the winter months.
At the foot of the main pistes (in front of De Neige) sits this outdoor bar. Attached to the Bellevue Hotel and featuring live music and themed events. Enjoy the outdoor covered bar and/or the indoor restaurant. Often a little too busy to enjoy a relaxing drink, but a great place to be if you're in the party mood or just wanting to do a little people watching.
Open every day from 11am to 9pm throughout the ski season. Pro tip: There's a small snack hut next to the bar that serves crepes, paninis and hot-dogs... a quicker way to refuel than having to wait for table service.
Locally owned underground bar with two bowling lanes, pool tables and darts board. Often themed evenings (back to school, horror nights etc) and loud music.
During the ski-season Bar Bowling is usually busy with a mix of locals, seasonnaires and tourists in general. Perhaps more suited to a younger crowd, not the best for a catch-up over a quiet drink.
A compact, central bar. Mostly visited by younger locals and holiday makers. There's big screen TV's for watching sporting events, occasional live music, DJ sets and tattoo evenings. Free nibbles come as standard and there's also a great selection of pub food and local beers. The front has a covered outdoor drinking area, perfect if the weather suits or if you have a blanket.
Le Barbylone opens every day in the winter from 8am to 2am (except Monday mornings). Top tip: It's ideal for a pre or apres-ski breakfast, depending on what time you start your day. In the summer, Le Barbylone is open from 2pm to 2am.
Authentic Australian style bar and restaurant. An inviting selection of reasonably priced food with a wide selection of wines and gins! The food options vary from asian (pad thai and noodle dishes), to burgers, loaded chips and nachos.
Keep an eye out for their occasional sushi nights and live music events.
Amazingly, Igloo Chalet Club first opened its doors to Les Gets visitors in 1938! It remains the only nightclub in resort. Closed on Mondays, but open every other day during the winter season — from 11pm to 6am. The club plays host to a variety of specialised nights such as foam parties, themed nights (80s, rock, disco, Valentine's, New Year's) and often hosts local DJs. The interior has a traditional chalet feel with lots of old wooden beams.
Word to the wise: while a 6am finish sounds like lots of fun, staying until close on your last night and then travelling out of resort later that day is anything but. A late night followed by a ski session can be great, a late night waiting for a flight home can be really unpleasant. Trust us, we learned this the hard way. Sidenote, if you're under 30 you may not be effected by said late nights... yet.
Small, compact bar with wooden, traditional design. An ideal spot to either sit at the bar or find a quiet corner and enjoy a post slopes drink. There's always a good atmosphere and a good mix of clientèle. Serving an array of different beers and ales as well as tapas and pub grub.
There's live music events throughout the ski season (with occasional jazz nights), the Guinness is amazing and there's irish stew... what's not to like?
There is a very convenient night shuttle bus called the "Navette Nocturne" which runs around Les Gets dropping people off after a night in town.

This shuttle can be booked by calling the number below any time after 17:30 in the evening. It only operates during the winter season.
It runs from 19:30 to 23:30 each evening from mid December to mid April.
Night shuttle booking number: +33 (0)6 23 37 82 01 (18:30-22:30)
