Après-ski in Alpe d'Huez is quite lively with a good number of bars spread across the resort. Up until this coming 2014 season most of the action happened a little later than other resorts in bars in town with a little live music. This year Alp d'Huez is joining the après-ski elite with the addition of a brand new La Folie Douce up on a sunny plateau at 2300m. There is a long Blue piste back into the resort from there. La Folie Douce has changed the face of après-ski at every resort it has graced like Val Thorens and Méribel. This will be no different and will become a major focus of the après-ski loving British market. In town we recommend Smithy's and for late night partying we recommend the Igloo Club (of course).
