BARS & CLUBS
There is quite an overlap between what constitutes a café, a pub, a bar and in some cases even a restaurant in Pas de la Casa; with many of the venues operating as all of the above.
Most have happy hours from around 16:00–18:00hrs and many have live music or DJs to kick off the early evening après ski.
Despite its reputation as ‘Ibiza in the snow’, the resort doesn't actually have any superclubs; and most of what it does have are basic disco-bars with theme nights.
That said, the town does rock; and with so many venues vying for business there's always some event or promotion going on, often sponsored by well-known drink/tobacco brands offering free shots and/or free cigarettes!
The listings below give a selection of some of the most popular venues around the town of Pas de la Casa: Avinguda d'Encamp, Carrer de Bearn, Carrer del Maia, Carrer de la Solana, Plaça dels Vaquers and Plaça Sant Josep are where most of the liveliest venues are concentrated.
Most of the resort's hotels also have in-house bars, many of which can be fairly animated depending on the liveliness and sociability of each week's clientele. At the very least they're ideal for starting the night off, and/or for a final wee cheeky one before bedtime. Many of the larger and better quality hotels also offer a café-bar service in their lounge bars, and these are often a good alternative option when you're in the mood for a more refined après ski experience.
