Les Gets is a very family-friendly resort so, as might be expected, après-ski is relatively quiet. But there is some life to be found. New to the resort centre is craft beer bar, La Beca with 13 draught beers plus a huge choice of international brands.
As the lifts close, the aptly named L’Aprèski at the foot of the pistes and lifts is part of the Bellevue hotel and the place to go as the lifts close. It has live bands and DJs some days, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Good snacks too – crèpes, paninis, hot dogs and the like.

Le Pub Irlandais
The popular Pub Irlandais brews its own beer at the back and usually has a fine selection of five or six blonde, amber and dark options. Expect live music some days, friendly and cheerful service every day. It also serves food - an intriguing mix of Irish and Mexican cuisine. The Black Bear Canadian Bar above it is also worth a look.

Le Bacchus By Crychar
For a quieter time, the Le Bacchus By Crychar ‘wine and tea bar’ in the Crychar hotel at the foot of the slopes fits the bill. It has comfy sofas and chairs, a roaring fire and an extensive wine list.

The place to go for late night dancing, L’Igloo first opened in 1938 and claims it was the first ski resort dance hall in France. The resident DJ plays all kinds of music, citing the Arctic Monkeys and the Rolling Stones as particular favourites.
