La Folie Douce Bar, Meribel

Famous on-piste après-ski bar near the mid station of Saulire Express

Featured in:

Following in the footsteps of its famous sister bar in Val d'Isere, this apres ski bar has become a popular place to party on the slopes since opening in 2012. This bar and restaurant is situated at the mid station of Saulire cable car, close to the Biche and Mauduit pistes.

After a great day on the mountain, skiers and boarders flock to this bar & restaurant's terrace to dance in the open air like they were in Ibiza which is what Luc Reversade, the owner, envisioned. Nothing stopped his dream becoming reality: the outside bars even have specially heated-column pumps to stop the beer from freezing in sub-zero temperatures!

They have planned everything to ensure that you enjoy the bar as much as they do, providing comfortable outdoor sofas, blankets and duvets in case the temperature drops, ski & snowboard storage and wifi access. The music builds up slowly throughout the day, so don't worry if you are stopping here for a coffee first thing or even lunch later on in the day. You'll still be able to hear yourself think.

Open 7 days a week from 10:00 to 17:00, with après-ski fun starting at 15:00. And from 13:30 to 16:00 you can watch their amazing crew of artists, acrobat dancers, singers and musicians perform.

Watch this...

The Restaurant

They offer you the choice of three places to dine on the slopes at either the great value La Petite Cuisine canteen, their fine mountain restaurant La Fruitiere or O'Fondue Bar, a French-style snack shack out on the terrace where you can order a cheese fondue to share.

Visitor comments

  • "One of my fave places in Meribel. Get there early to sit outside in the sunshine for lunch and then enjoy a drink or two dancing on the tables during the show. Careful not to miss the last chair lift if you have one too many!" - Trip Advisor
  • "They offer up the best outdoor, on-piste party. The music, the vibe... You cannot describe it. You must go to experience it yourself." - Trip Advisor
  • "The staff certainly know how to get a crowd moving. Tunes are great. Energy level high. If you like to party on the slopes, this is the place. Great mid afternoon til the time lifts start to shut down. Then off to the village for more." - Trip Advisor
