Zermatt is known for its apres-ski activities which include tea dances, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and discos. Yes, Zermatt has amazing night time activities. Here are some things you can do.
For music and dancing, you can try going to Papperla Pub which is just across the bridge from the church square has the liveliest apres-ski bar in town. The crowds spill over into the street and they have frequent live musics. There is also a place called Snow-Boat which is close to Sunnega Express. This place emerged as prime apres-ski venue with live music, exciting cocktails and a late night house with techno DJ sessions. Over on the Sunnegga near Rothorn mountain there is the Blue Lounge which has live music during the day. For more dancing or listening to music, you can try going to Hotel de la Poste. It is the hot spot of Zermatt. They have disco downstairs, Papa Caesar Lounge Bar on the second and on the ground floor there is Pink which is Zermatt’s premier jazz address. There are many more places to listen to music and dance through the night! So wear something comfortable with your dance shoes to have an amazing night.
If you want to quietly enjoy your drink, you can try going to Old Zermatt which is slightly more quieter or Elsie’s Bar which is most pretentious and is where the upscale crowd meets for oysters. There are also Mont Cervin Palace, Zermatterhof, Monte-Rosa Hotels, and the Schweizerhof (which has a very nice fireplace) for you to enjoy drinking before and after dinner. If you want a romantic evening with the view of Zermatt, you can try going to Panorama Bar.
Many hotels offer bars so if you want to spend a romantic evening in a bar, just check out some hotels. If you want to go to a unique but very interesting bar, you can try going to Vernissage. This place has a combination of bars, art galleries and a movie theater. The lower level has a theater set up more or less like some Hollywood mogul’s screening room, complete with a bar and lounge chairs. Just grab a drink and make yourself at home.
Zermatt really offers many incredible bars and restaurants. All you really have to do is follow the narrow winding streets and you will discover your own favorite place. And the best part is, you can have one for the road since you won’t be driving!
