Chamonix is one of the best places in the valley to have fun after you are done with your outdoor or indoor activities. There are several bars, terraces and night clubs where you can relax, have a drink, listen to live music, dance or just spend time with your friends doing something else except skiing, climbing, or swimming.
There are several places like Chambre Neuf, La Terrace, and The Jekyll where live band or DJs entertain you. There are the locals' hangouts like Le Vagabond, the Micro Brasserie de Chamonix or MBC, South Bar, Munster, Monkey Bar, Le Toff and Le Verte where returning tourists like going. If you do not mind a little bit more pricey hangouts you can try Le Privelege, The Clubhouse or No Escape where you can try some special cocktails and spend time before and after dinner.
For sport events lovers the bar Bar'd Up is the best choice. Apart from being a locals' place you can watch all the main sport events while having a drink with your friends. Bar'd Up also has a DJ and organizes themed nights.
Le Lapin Agile is the place for wine lovers. The bar has an outstanding selection of wines from all around the world and every day between 6 and 9 pm there is a complimentary buffet with the drinks. The local is also well known for his hot chocolate and the fact that it is not one of the hot spots in town. So if you want to enjoy a nice evening and a glass of wine or a hot chocolate this is the place to go to.
There are also a few night clubs in Chamonix and the valley for the people who like clubbing and partying. Le Garage is the biggest one and La Cantina is the club where a lot of DJs come to entertain.
For those of you who are not about too keen about dancing and partying there is a casino that has blackjack, roulette, and other game machines; there is a Cybar of web surfers; and a cinema where one can usually choose from three movies. Also for the music lovers there are several indoor and street concerts held throughout the year.
