Zermatt offers some of the Alps best nightlife and après-ski. You can start the party early at one of Zermatt’s on-mountain restaurants and enjoy a world-class bottle of wine in the sunshine, or take the festivities down the slopes into the village and then well into the night. Like many huate resorts, don’t be surprised if you’re schlepping your ski or snowboard gear well into the evening hours. There’s just too much fun to be had to go back to your hotel and risk missing any of the renowned Zermatt nightlife.
In Zermatt après-ski and nightlife generally end up melting into one. What starts as a cocktail or glass of wine at one of the on-mountain restaurants, such as Chez Vrony or Findlerhof, in the Findeln area of the resort, often turns into a late night out on the town. The main piste thoroughfare ends at Cervo Restaurant, which offers party-goers an exceptional outdoor patio area, and cozy indoor lounge area and live music. Other top-of-mind après-ski scenes include the Café Snowboat, or Zermatt Yacht Club—a snowboat complete with a sundeck—or Vernissage which is a chic, laid-back watering hole that attracts locals and tourists. If you’re après-ing in Zermatt on a shoestring, Sparky’s is your best bet, as it offers cheap beers and a welcoming atmosphere. If you’re looking to cut a rug, head to the discos and dance parties at Broken, T-Bar, Papperla and Grampi’s.
