A gourmet break
Enjoy a drink and a snack in a friendly atmosphere
Two pubs are very popular with locals in Le Grand Bornand: The Green Monkey and Les 2 Guides. Both offer a relaxed and friendly welcome which really hits the spot after a day on the slopes. The bars Chez Marcel and Les Clarines are also great places for a drink with friends.
In La Clusaz, the Brasserie Centrale is one of the village’s oldest establishments. It’s also a favourite with locals, along with the Bali Bar and Le Bachal, which do great tapas to open your après-ski evening.
The friendly atmosphere at Le Central brasserie in Thônes is not to be missed, and the Aravis Cafe is a great place to meet up with friends and family.
If wine is your things, there are two bars with a great choice – Vins quand tu veux in La Clusaz and Ô Vin Cœur in Grand Bornand.
