La Folie Douce, Meribel – the best bars in Méribel

Méribel has a lively après scene and the resort is frequented by a large number of Brits (which can be a plus or minus depending on how you look at it).

La Folie Douce is a youth-attracting après bar in central La Saulire station, and by the end of the day, most of the British-run bars in the resort center and around Rond Point are usually packed with revelers. Afterwards, the action starts at Jack’s Bar and later at O’Sullivans until the wee hours of the morning.
