The best après-ski in St Moritz


St Moritz’s après scene is muted compared to Swiss rivals like Zermatt or Verbier, but there are still huts on the mountain for lingering in over a final drink before descending to bars in the valley. The after dinner scene is sophisticated and, naturally given St Moritz’s reputation for upmarket glamour, expensive.

With its high-class shopping on Via Serlas, whether at Cartier, Hermès or a fine Swiss chocolatier, art galleries and spas, après-ski activities aren’t limited to bars and cafés either. St Moritz also offers a host of varied winter activities and outdoor events throughout the season, most focusing on the frozen lake – including horse-drawn carriage rides, snow polo championships, the White Turf horse racing event and skating.

King’s Social House

La Scarpetta

A relaxed, cosy wine bar and delicatessen, La Scarpetta serves cheese and meat platters and homemade pasta alongside wines from producers the owners know personally. Decor is pared back and the focus is on warm service and simple pleasures.

A fun après spot at Hauser’s Hotel in the centre of St Moritz Dorf, RooBar’s terrace is regularly full of season workers, locals and the young at heart letting their hair down to the house DJs. Rum punches and boozy hot chocolates add to the appeal.
