Tremblant — Apres-ski and nightlife


Apres-Ski / NightlifeSince many of the hot spots also are restaurants, see Dining for more information.On sunny days, the best apres-Ski is in the Place St. Bernard, where a stage often is set up with a live band cranking out the tunes. People sit in chairs with a brew and enjoy the sun, listen to the music and watch everyone looking for their friends.

La Grappe a Vin is the place to go for fine wine or liquors and light fare. Microbrasserie La Diable has canned music, good sausages for late-night snacks and six beers brewed on the premises. Blues bands play every Friday and Saturday.

Le Shack is a bit louder and often has a live band on the weekends. The whimsical decor of trees and flying geese overhead makes you feel like you’re outdoors. The dancing never stops here, so be prepared for a lot of apres-ski exercise. Shooters are served in the traditional Quebec glass ski boot.

Cafe d’Époque in Vieux Tremblant sports strobe lights, loud live music (also CDs) and lots of bodies pressed together on the crowded rustic wood dance floor. OK at night, but a bit of a pit when exposed to daylight.

P’tit Caribou is also in Vieux Tremblant and consistently gets high ratings from Canadian magazines. Great, loud music and bar-top dancing by go-go girl wannabes. The people and the noise create the wild party ambience. You’ll feel like you’re 20 again, be ready to stay up far too late into the night.
