You will find a great selection of Meribel bars and Meribel pubs here , plus 3 discos/nightclubs including the one at Mottaret. Below is the list of all the best bars in both Meribel and surrounding areas. Most are in the main town but there are also a few out of town and of course up in Mottaret. Many have ‘happy hours’ which means a slight discount on most drinks especially beers. As a group you might want to buy beer in a large jug. Cheaper than individual glasses. In Meribel beer is highly taxed and more expensive than the UK but wine has low tax and is cheaper so it might be worth changing your drinking habits for a week? Many bars have apres ski sessions with live music 5pm – 7pm so Meribel has gained a bit of a reputation as a party town. Most bars stay open till 2am then it’s off to the nightclub if you want to continue in to the early hours.
