08 Feb Debunk the Myth – St Anton is just a Party Town
Debunking the myth that St Anton is just a party town.
If you do want a party, don’t get us wrong, you can party the afternoon and the night away. St Anton has always been famed for its après ski – it was the birthplace of it after all. On the mountain you can party away to all the shocking après ski music and rock out to your favourite rock anthems at:
- The Krazy Kanguruh
- The Mooserwirt
- The Rodel Alm
- The Hospiz Alm
- Senne Hutte
- Underground on the Piste
- The Arlberg Taja
- Fang Haus
- Keller Bar
Night time continues in town and you can drink, dance, play pool, play table football, watch sport, listen to live music and have a great time at the likes of Bar Cuba, Scotties, Piccadilly, Post Keller, Murrmel, Pub 37, Bobos and Anthony’s Steak & Shake. But St Anton offers so much more than that. You just have to ask, or even better visit and see for yourself. There is literally something for everyone.
Wine bars like Nikki’s Stadl serve up a great selection of world wide wines in a cosy, cave like atmosphere. You can get excellent cocktails from Raffl’s bar (served by a princess) and enjoy a sophisticated evening sipping fine brandy’s and whiskies if that’s what takes your fancy. There is a wealth of fine beers on offer for the beer connoisseur – Far Eastern beers at Skiing Buddah bar, great German lagers and pils at Jule’s café and Murrmel.
Café culture is fast becoming the trend. Après cafes, where you can enjoy a good chat, a game of cards and watch the world go by alongside the best local schnapps, Austrian wines and a delightful piece of homemade cake, a warm soup or a jausen platter (local cured meats and cheeses).
Restaurants are as popular as ever and there are many celebrated chefs to be found in St Anton. Whether a gourmet lunch or a Michelin dinner and everything in between, you can find it in St Anton.
A taster of what’s on offer… There’s a selection of great local restaurants serving all the traditional dishes, many served with a modern twist and bit of flair not before associated with Austrian cuisine. Or for something different: Tapas restaurants with a great selection of dishes and Spanish wines, Thai food created by authentic Thai chefs, numerous Italian restaurants serving anti pasti specials, steak houses with local cuts as well as Argentinean and Brazilian beef, Tex Mex fiestas and a Sushi restaurant offering amazing new dishes not seen on many menus, including a range of Austrian Sushi. Raffl’s Hotel has turned food into an art form and the young executive chef creates artwork on your plate, matched by the sublime taste sensations.
Don’t forget that just around the corner, in St Christoph, is a fantastic Michelin rated restaurant with the worlds biggest big bottled wine cellar – in the tiniest of alpine villages.
You can enjoy jazz, pop, rock, hip hop and dance in all the various bars and clubs with the DJ’s or you can enjoy live music, from covers through to originals in numerous bars.
St Anton can be whatever you want it to be.
It had a wild reputation (in the good old days!) which the town has been keen to shrug off. It has reinvented itself as a party town if you want it, but it offers so much more than that.
Don’t forget the skiing! St Anton is without a doubt one of the best and most famous ski resorts in the world. It has that reputation for a good reason – it is that good and it attracts some of the worlds best skiers.
On piste, off piste, après bar, wine bar, jazz club, night club. St Anton has it all….
