One of the best bars in Chamonix with good service and friendly staff and bouncer and best of all is the rum and the fact that it´s a pirate themed bar. I really recommend this bar

Small but lively bar with good music and great vibe On the night we went at about 10:30 it was pretty busy mainly with locals. Good quick service and pretty friendly bouncer.

Pirate ship themed bar in the centre of Chamonix. Very novel and atmospheric. Check out the dedicated smoker's den. Worth a visit for its pure quirkiness.

Idiotic locals bar with a childish pirate theme. The favourite here is setting fire to the bar and then doing a shot. Great music and packed out crowd most nights make this place worth a visit but then under skilled bar staff and cripplingly slow service can be a real pain. I probably won't visit again.

A wonderful bar with pirate style. The team realy understand the business. You have fun, a lot of good shoots, and other drinks. If you are at Chamonix it is a must to do.
