Méribel has a lively après scene and lots of Brits frequent the resort (depending on how you look at it, that can be a plus or a minus).
La Folie Douce is the youth magnet après bar in La Saulire’s mid-station, and at the end of the day the mostly British-run bars in the resort center and around Rond Point are often packed with party goers. Then the action begins at venues like Jack’s Bar and continues until the early morning hours at O’Sullivans much later.

In the middle of town, with an English pub atmosphere and a large selection of wines, the Barometer has occasional music, but is generally a bit more relaxed than the busier places nearby.
