Given Chamonix is a quite a swanky resort it’s not known for being cheap. As great as being plush and chic is, sometimes it’s nice just to find a cheap beer at the end of the day when the whole ambiance thing isn’t as important as a swiftly before going home for tea.
As much as I don’t endorse binge drinking of course, being married to a Yorkshireman I am conditioned to look out for bargains and happy hours 😉
A recent discussion on Snowheads consequently caught my eye. I was eager to see all those marvelous bars and restaurants with special offers to look forward to visiting next time we go out a. Then I realised that we knew them all. Is that as a result of a well honed yorkshire nose, or the sheer fluke that we’re the Cham Sud side of town? Um, probably both, but it doesn’t half make it convenient and we’re far enough away not to have to listen to the noise afterwards.
So here we go……
Our closest and favourite is The Jekyll, just next to L’Impossible on the same road as us. You can sit out in the summer and catch the last few rays of the sun between 4.30 and 6pm, and if I remember correctly a jug of beer is 9E and glass of wine 2E. Same format in the winter, just indoors of course. Later in the evening there are promotions on cocktails and shots.
A little closer into town we have Cham Sud with a selection of bars. In the summer you’ll find the Monkey Bar open with it’s BOGOF on beer and wine early evening. In the winter you have both the Munster Bar and Monkey Bar offering early evening deals.
I look forward to finding some more 🙂
And we have…..
