You Ain't Lived Till You've Rocked On The Tables ! The 3hrs of Live Music with a DJ on The Balcony most afternoons IS SPECIAL. When The Suns Out IT ROCKS. Drinks & Food Expensive BUT worth Splashing out on a £90 Bottle of Champagne to help you dance with Ski Boots on !!

My husband ordered lamb and he was very happy with the... More

The coolest place in the Alps and i think in Europe. After skiing you can go there to have a lunche at 13.30/14. At 15 begin the music with party, dancer and live sax..very very nice! Must to go.

It’s an amazing place, champagne showers, live and dance music and a great DJ! The views are outstanding and the atmosphere is clubbing! The food is a bit pricey but is very good. We stopped here almost every day after skiing to listen to music, relax, have a drink or have lunch. Great music, great atmosphere, people of all ages... More

Awesome. Sit back and chill watching the onsie dressed crowd get their boogie down the the dude in the mankini on the mike, the bearded one on the sax and the groovy female vocalist. And the bass from the decks. The lifts slide by overhead, and some Russians in fancy dress drink champagne as they party on down standing on... More

We loved it, not because of the noise ;) but because of the cuisine and the friendly employees! We'll come back!

Great atmosphere any time or day of the week! Good food and good drink (if a little more expensive) but they are making a great name for themselves.

OK so I had read the reviews and various friends had told me to visit La Folie Douce during my visit, we ended up doing so 3 times while i Val Thorens. The apres which kicks off around half 2/3 is really worth it with a mixture of great club music and lots and lots of dancing. It will be... More

It was amazing sight as you came back from your days skiing. It is located on your way back to Val Thorens. It is a very inviting when you stand at the top of the mountain looking over the crowd with music blasting out over the valley. As you slide down the mountain the atmosphere gets better and better as... More

I went to La Folie Douce after a day on the slopes and was attracted by the crowds and music. Had a few beers, soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed the views from the outside deck. Just be sure you are able to ski down after!
