24 Apr The Best Bars in St Anton
Which are the best bars in St Anton?
St Anton is famous for being a beautiful, traditional Tirolean town with amazing skiing, and of course, its legendary après-ski scene. But which is the best sport to go for a drink after skiing or after dinner? In no particular order, here are ten of the best bars in St Anton:
What else should be first on our list than the MooserWirt. To many people the MooserWirt is St Anton! The après ski party here starts at in the afternoon and the fun doesn’t stop until 8pm. During those hours you can enjoy a powerful Jägermeister or sink steins of lager, while dancing on tables to cheesy music, losing your friends (but making new ones!) and feel like you have had the best night out ever. Yet when the doors close it’s still only 8pm and time for dinner back at the chalet!
Located on the opposite side of the piste to the MooserWirt, the KK is legendary apres destination in its own right, providing after-ski refreshment since 1965. Today it’s a great place to eat before sipping some beer and hitting the terrace dancefloor in your ski boots to sing along to rock anthems and classic après ski hits.
Basecamp is not quite as well known as the KK and Mooservirt, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the best places to get a drink after a day on the slopes. Basecamp leaves behind the tradition and campness of the better-known bars and offers something a bit sleeker. That doesn’t mean it is any less fun: the bar serves great food and at après time you can enjoy live music and DJs playing into the night.
Tucked away downstairs on Dorfstrasse, Bar Cuba is a favourite with Brits in St Anton. If you want to keep up with Premiership football, Six Nations rugby or even the latest test match, this is the place to go. Happy Hour every day is from 4pm to 5pm and when you visit make sure you try the infamous ‘Cuba Cocaine’ cocktail (the ingredients remain a secret that owner Andre will take to his grave).
Whatever you may think of the name, the Horny Bull is a great bar to visit. Expect live acts each evening and DJs pulling in an energetic, youthful crowd. Throughout the season you can enjoy ‘We love the 90s’ every Tuesday and ‘Soulicious’ every Wednesday and Friday for an upbeat mix of RnB, soul, hip hop and ‘raggaeton’. Pick your favourite and get your dancing shoes on!
This is a super fun après ski bar, located just off the piste, not too far from the Krazy Kangaruh and the Mooservirt. The sun terrace and balcony are typically packed with diners at lunch time and dancers during après.
Named by many as the best après ski bar in St Anton – The Underground bar is tucked away near the museum and is run by the infamous Joan, a local institution herself. Whether you are there for dinner, après ski, or evening drinks there is always live entertainment and a great atmosphere.
Piccadilly / Postkeller
The Piccadilly and Postkeller offer you two bars for one! Both are located in the Hotel Post and offer you the option to dance away until 4am. The Piccadilly hosts live music and is slightly calmer, with a chance to chat and relax. When you start finding your foot tapping, then just slide off next door to the Postkeller for some serious partying and to dance the night away.
For an option that’s more ‘local’ and that still offers great live music and dancing why not try the Murrmel, located in the centre of the town. Murrmel also has maybe the most popular apres musician for miles: watch out for Gunar, who plays almost every day of the season.
Hell’s Club is another spot with a name that doesn’t do it justice. This bar serves great food in a space that is decorated in a contemporary way that encourages a relaxed atmosphere.
Small and perfectly formed. A proper pub style bar that is always busy (because it can only fit in 37 people!). Guinness, ales, and a great gin and whiskey.
Galzig Bistro Bar
The Galzig Bistro Bar is known for its great cocktails and wine list. Small and cosy it offers something different from the usual party scene.
Anthony’s Happy Valley Bar
