Of all the different ski resorts across Europe, few boast an après ski scene as vibrant and full-on and unapologetically Eurotrashy as that found in the Austrian resort of St Anton. The resort’s annual après ski hits album is filmed in the infamous Mooserwirt après ski bar every December, and attracts new fans every week throughout the winters! St Anton’s après ski scene is fast, upbeat and well...slightly crazy - not quite what us Brits are used to! The music is reminiscent of 80’s cheesy pop and the locals seem to go absolutely mad for it! It’s hugely infectious though, and after a couple of hot mulled wines or a pint or two of Alpine lager you’re bound to find yourself getting into the swing of things.
The Mooserwirt Bar is quite simply one of the largest, loudest and unashamedly vibrant après ski bars in the world! It’s certainly the most popular après bar in St Anton, and is a real highlight of your week’s stay in this iconic resort. The Mooserwirt is set within a hub of après ski bars on the piste above town, just a ski away from resort centre. Lively from start to finish, the bar’s resident DJ Gerhaard is known and loved wherever he goes! With a large dance floor and 4 bar areas the Mooserwirt is a sizeable venue, but it get packed each day of the winter with après skiers keen to party!
One of the newest additions to St Anton, Taps bar offers a more modern après ski experience with drink offers and current chart and dance music. One of the most appealing features is the sun terrace, which fills up quickly all season long and offers après skiers the chance to enjoy the experience in stunning Alpine scenery.
The Krazy Kangaroo, or KK’s as it’s more commonly known, is another of St Anton’s more modern après ski bars. KK’s is one of the longest serving bars in resort, and has recently been given a well deserved upgrade to include a sun terrace and extended seating inside. Enjoy catchy rifts, popular singalong songs and table top dancing in this welcoming and lively après ski venue.
One of the lesser known après ski hot spots, the Underground is a more relaxed venue than its boisterous neighbours and offers none of the rowdy après ski dancing found in the louder bars nearby. Visitors can enjoy afternoons of regular live music and a peaceful beer or two before skiing back to the chalet for dinner. Bliss!
