Brits go, er, bananas for Bananas, one of the most popular bars in Val d’Isere which is made up of two separate bars – one for beer and one for spirits. A clever incentive, if ever we saw one, not to mix your drinks! There’s a great atmosphere inside, with a cocktail menu that champions pint-sized mixtures – we kid not! – such as the Titanic, a lethal blend of curacao and vodka.
The food is also a reason to stop by, with a fusion of Tex Mex and Indian dishes making up the mouthwatering menu. Situated at the bottom of the slopes, Bananas is one of the best places to come for an apres-ski bevvy or three. Warm yourself by the log fire and gear yourself up for a night of a thousand cocktails.
