The Fall Line
As every bar owner knows, ‘cool’ gravitas begins with the name. In this case, a tribute to the gravity determined route a skier careers uncontrollably down following a fatal mistake on a challenging off-piste run.
The Fall Line is the brainchild of Ben, Jono and Fraser, three Brits hailing from different Val nightlife institutions (Saloon, Banana and Dick’s Tea Bar respectively). By entirely overhauling old local haunt, Bar Le Foret, they’ve managed to create a bar that serves both as a chilled out space during the day (read comfy sofas and wifi access) and a party destination at night (read great music, low lighting and a foosball table).
The owners, famed for their knowledge of drinks and drinking games, have quickly made The Fall Line an essential element of the Val après scene. This, despite the bar being a small walk away from most of the action. Drinks promotions occur every night – most notably with Gentleman’s club on Friday nights, where sharply dressed hommes can take advantage of Whisky Sours for €5.
