Of the bars in Chamonix, there is only one choice for those who want the party to go on into the night. Open until 2am, step down into the basement bar of Le Privilege for Champagne cocktails served up against a backdrop of live music.
English singer-songwriter Angus Newton plays to a boisterous crowd of après-ski revelers, with a 300 song repertoire to keep everyone entertained well into the small hours. He also welcomes guest singers – most notably Charlotte Church while she was staying at the resort in 2007. No doubt she made a dent in the cocktail menu, too.
