The summer months are a time for the young to travel, let loose, and really party hard. A new club on the island, Space Menorca, has introduced a new concept of sophisticated nightlife, with the most powerful sound systems, advanced LED technology, and the latest video mapping software. If this new club is trying to unveil a new way to party, then it certainly has the space to do so. It is divided into three areas: an open entrance hall with bar, for you to meet up with your friends before getting lost in the fray; a main club room with dance music, for you to get your groove on; and a large outdoor “chill-out” terrace upstairs with lounge seating and two bars, for you to take a break from dancing and chatting with your friends.

It is set on Paseo Maritim in Plama, and spread over three floors. It has the usual terraces with wonderful views, a restaurant, and VIP rooms like most clubs. What makes it special is the three separate rooms which each feature a different kind of music with one playing mostly house music for those who like to dance, one playing funk for those who like to “get down” and funky, and another featuring chill-out music for those who need to relax and have a few drinks. The club also features a variety of party nights and exclusive music events.

ZERMATT

1. The Schneewittchen, Zermatt:

With the winter months just around the corner, it’s time to start preparing for your winter travel. For those of you who aren’t tired out after a day on the slopes, one of the best party clubs in the Alps, is very close by. It is located in the Papper la Pub, which is also a nice place for a drink, and opens at 11:00 p.m. running until 3:30 a.m. Since opening in 2003, it has been the meeting point for locals, season workers, VIPs, ski teachers, ski bummies, and international party people. It is a great place to meet people in the area and make friends with fellow visiting skiers. There is a wide variety of events held here. The most famous of the nights to attend are the Rock ‘n Roll Sundays which feature bands from all over the world. On top of this, the club shows popular DJs and party labels, and has some of the craziest party themes. You can check out the website www.papperlapub.ch/das_schnee.html to see what theme will best suit you, when guest DJs will appear, and the dates of special live performances. Whether you need to fill the time between slope sessions, or are just a party hound, the Schnee or the “snow” is, ironically, one of the hottest spots in the area.

VERBIER

1. Pub Mont Fort, Verbier:

For those skiers who like a cheap drink after they get off the slopes, then a wild party once they have rested up will find the Pub Mont Fort to be a paradise in the snow. This beautiful historic building in the heart of the Swiss Alps is host to many wild nights w/ after skiing parties, live music, half- priced happy hour and much more. On top of this, they have weekly drink promotions, sports on the big-screen, and great food. There are two large bars on both levels, and more importantly, customers can try their luck at the legendary shots bar, where the “shot master” creates a new shot almost every night. As the season approaches, go to the website www.pubmontfort.com to see the upcoming weekly promotions and parties. This place is for a variety of skiers with their delicious and fresh menu, wide variety of drinks, many types of live music, and a never-ending list of party ideas.

2. The Farm Club, Verbier:

For those skiers and partiers who love the spotlight, there is a nightclub which claims to have the highest profile in the resort. The Farm Club carries a great history, still having the two original owners, and has a great reputation that has yet to be challenge by others in the area. It has seen the likes of David Bowie and Diana Ross, both of whom used to dance the night away with slope workers and ski bums. To preserve this history, the booths, benches, and even support beams have been renovated and replaced. When you dance in this club, you are literally dancing in the same place as European royals and countless celebrities. The clubs chic, sexy interior is home to many events and parties, and should be on the list of any partier headed to the area for the ski season.

As the season gets closer, check the website www.hotelnevai.com/farm-club for current hours and upcoming events. This club is known as the place to see and be seen, so if you wish to get on the map, or share a drink with a famous celebrity while you talk about the slopes, this is the club to go to.

Traditional Verbier Restaurants for Great Alpine Eating

Posted on

As the main resort in the four valleys, Verbier offers the holiday-maker a wide selection of great restaurants to choose from. Whether you are taking a summer break or a winter sports holiday, there are good quality and good value traditional Swiss eateries close to every Verbier rental apartment. Here are three to try:

Le Carrefour – is on the Route du Golf, just above Verbier’s Rouge slope. It claims to be one of the oldest restaurants in the area and always seems to be busy (so probably best to book a table for lunch or dinner). Really good quality Alpine food can be enjoyed, from a simple fondue for two at about 30 CHF to a delicious tender house-speciality grilled beef fillet at 58 CHF (served, still cooking, on a hot slate).  There is also a children’s menu with prices from as little as 11 CHF and the house speciality tarte tatin really is a ‘must try’ desert.

La Marmotte – in Savolyeres, is a cosy and traditional restaurant blessed with some exceptional views. Not really the easiest restaurant to get to, I suggest you try it for lunch, before considering how comfortable you might be making the trip at night. Traditional fondues and croûtes au fromage vary in price from 21-32 CHF; their röstis are excellent and good value at 30 CHF or less. La Marmotte’s salads are always tasty, fresh and served as notoriously generous portions.

Au Vieux Verbier – despite being one of the larger restaurants in Verbier, it is independent of the many hotels. Located at the base of the Medran ski run Au Vieux has a light, fresh, interior and the terrace is a welcome sun trap. The menu changes seasonally, food is fresh, excellently prepared and served in very generous portions for prices (for main courses) of about 22-48 CHF.

Any of these restaurants will seriously top-up your calories but if you don’t burn them off walking back to your holiday apartment, you’re bound to burn them off on the slopes the next day. Enjoy!
