Folie Douce Chamonix

Folie Douce Bar & Après-Ski

New to Chamonix’s après ski line up for 2019 is the Folie Douce Bar and Hotel. Firmly cementing Chamonix position as one of the worlds premier ski destinations.

Located at the bottom of the Brevent ski area Savoy piste, discovery the unique après atmosphere that the Folie Douce brand is famous for across the Alps.

Eclectic genres, live world class DJ sets, dancing on tables with people from all over the globe. Watch the sun set with a glass and then head inside where atmosphere continues in one of the many lavish dance and bar areas the hotel has to offer.

Too cool for school. It’s the place to be seen for après in Chamonix, open 4pm – 11pm every day.
