“A chamonix institution. This is where to hang out after skiing the vallee blanche, shopping in town or pretty much any time. You haven't seen Chamonix life if you haven't visited Elevation.”

“Great local vibe for cocktails, beer. Food is served during regular meal times, and people seem to love it. Also check Elevation 1904 next door, not listed on Google or Airbnb but a great spot for locals. The barman rocks and by the way, holds the medal for the best Espresso Martini!”

Place to eat
“This is the old favourite any time of the year – opposite the train station in Chamonix, with happy hour and live bands covering all the classics that get the crowd dancing on the tables during aprés ski. In the daytime this bar is transformed into a cosy restaurant with checked table clothes and outside seating on the sun terrace. A tasty menu is served and enjoyed by locals and tourists alike.”
