Fabulous 100

Bar des Airelles

Visitors arrive in layered Dior and Chanel ski ensembles as a sexy ski valet swaps boots for house slippers to use while inside.

The space preserves the tradition of eclectic Alpine decor with a nod to Hollywood sexy and old-world glamour. The decor puts a modern spin on traditional ski lodge decor complete with the requisite lounge soundtrack and occasional live music act. After a $51-million renovation it has become the hottest après-ski scene in Courchevel.  Located adjacent to in-house restaurant La Table du Jardin Alpin, the space divides the hotel lobby from a lively outdoor terrace with direct access to Gloriette and the Relais des Skieurs slopes.  Après-ski drink staples include liquor-accented hot chocolate, hot red wine and endless bottles of champagne.
