Verbier’s strong reputation for après ski is primarily based on the more hedonistic side of resort nightlife with several dozen lively bars to choose from, the majority of them with famous names like the Big Ben pub, the Nelson and the Pub Mont Fort. You may notice a slight British theme to the names of these establishments and you’re indeed likely to find that young Brits predominate within.

By no means everywhere is raucous however. You can have a quiet drink in one of the hotel bars, in the lounge bar at the Farinet (away from its live music venue next door) or in the New Club piano bar.

There are three night clubs, open to 4am, of which The Farm Club (+41 (0)27 771 61 21) is the one to see and be seen in although the Coco Club (+41 (0)27 771 66 66) is also good.
