Ask anyone whose been to Verbier for apres-ski recommendations and the Farinet is bound to be mentioned. It’s enormously popular and can be heard all over town from 4pm onwards, when a generous happy hour policy kick-starts the fun in the apres-ski conservatory. Featuring regular live bands, the glass roof slides back to allow either late afternoon sunshine or the snow to pour in. It’s your classic exuberant apres-ski experience.

Not for you? There’s another side to le Farinet: settle into the leather sofas of the lounge bar, where the Alpine lodge surroundings are sophisticated but welcoming. Prices rise accordingly but there’s a good cocktail list (long drinks from 15chf). Service can be a little slow during busy times but certainly worth a visit. Located on the Place Centrale, in Hotel Farient as you head up Route du Medran.

Open 4-10pm for apres-ski, 4pm-1.30am for lounge bar.
