When night falls in Engelberg...

10 January 2019 - Tips for party people

When night falls in Engelberg the party people come out to play, celebrating and dancing ‘til dawn. Here we provide a few tips for an unforgettable night out – or just a refreshing après-ski beer.


The Core Irish Pub
A warm Irish welcome: An authentic Irish pub where locals and guests get together to drink a beer in cosy, convivial company. It’s hard to limit yourself to just one though: there are 15 on draught and 15 kinds in bottles, as well as 50 different whiskeys! Tip: If you can’t decide on a single beer, we recommend the tasting board with three or five 100 ml glasses. It’s a great way to get to know a range of beers. Soothe the savage beast: Live bands play regularly at The Core throughout the season. 

Open daily from 3 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Gadä Bar im Alpenclub
Home from home: The homey Gadä bar with its cosy wooden interior is the perfect place to meet friends for drinks and nibbles, an après-ski, or a nightcap. Tip: Try the Kafi Nils to warm you up and perk you up! Feeling famished? If you get hungry pop over to the Alpenclub or the Fonduestube in the same building for a tasty meal.

Open Thursdays to Saturdays from 4 p.m.
 

Yucatan
Go wild! After an après-ski this is a great place to enjoy a good dinner. But that doesn’t mean the party’s over – in fact, it’s only just starting. “Yuki” hosts wild parties until the wee hours. Tip: A ski full of shots is sure to get you in the party mood! Open-ended: The last guests often don’t leave until the light of day. If you choose to attend one of the special parties such as the legendary Easter Bunny Party, you shouldn’t plan much for the following day.
    
From Monday to Sunday, from 3 p.m. until the last guest leaves

Gletscherspalte
You’re only young once (or twice): The Gletscherspalte bar and nightclub is rather like an actual glacier crevasse – it’s hard to extricate yourself, and when you do you usually have a banging head. This is primarily a venue for young, wild partygoers. Tip: Half-price drinks from 9 to 10 p.m. should help you get into the swing of it.  Don’t miss a thing: Follow the Gletscherspalte on Facebook to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the live concerts, ice-cold parties, or sports events on the big screen.

Monday to Saturday from 8:30 p.m. until the last guest leaves
 

Chalet
Conveniently situated: Anyone who spends the day on the Titlis automatically goes by the Chalet. But don’t just slide on past – this is a great place to rest your weary legs. Alternatively, dance in your ski boots with a warming glass of Kafi schnapps in your hand. Tip: Make sure you swing by when a live band is playing. Even the weariest legs will be reinvigorated in no time! Sledging and cheese – does it get any better? On Fridays and Saturdays you can enjoy night-time sledding followed by a convivial fondue evening in the Chalet.
 
Daily from 3 p.m.
 

Ski Lodge
The Swede life: A bar with plenty of Swedish charm, the Ski Lodge has quickly developed into the place to be for our numerous Swedish visitors, freeriders, and skiers of all nations. Tip: The Ski Lodge hosts music quizzes, film screenings and live concerts, and serves up burgers so good they’ve achieved almost cult status. Whirlpool: Guests staying overnight in the Ski Lodge can plunge into a hot tub in the middle of a snowy meadow. And those who come along just for the après-ski can enjoy the unique panoramic view from the terrace.

Daily from 4 p.m.


Hoheneck Bar
More of the Swede life: This bar is managed by the same Swedish crew who are behind the Ski Lodge. Anyone who knows the Swedes also knows they love to party. Following the après-ski, the parties here really get going and can last till dawn. Tip: If the party gets too wild for you, head to the cosy chill-out lounge. Let‘s rock: All winter long, live performances by locally beloved bands like Attack:Schwedenpack and Mathias “Biffen” Larsson and his band get the joint thumping.
 

Chez Rada
Wine o’clock: If you want to meet friends for an excellent glass of wine in an elegant but cosy ambience, head to Chez Rada. The menu features carefully selected wines primarily from Switzerland and Tuscany. Tip: If you’d like to smoke a cigar to accompany your wine, the staff at Chez Rada will be happy to help you select one. Pure indulgence: In Chez Rada you can leave your worries behind and enjoy the good life.

Tuesday to Saturday from 4 p.m.
 

The Old Monk
Everybody and his brother: Engelberg’s Central hotel named its bar "The Old Monk" in honour of the village’s Benedictine Abbey, which dates back to 1120. You might not see any actual monks here, but you will meet visitors from all over the world. Tip: Before or after enjoying a drink or two at the bar, head next door to Spice Bazaar, a restaurant serving delicious Indian food. A wide and varied choice: With its wide selection of cocktails, beers, wines and spirits and its light snacks menu, The Old Monk is a popular place to meet up with friends.

Every day except Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
 

Regina Bar  
The stylish choice: This small bistro-style bar in the H+ Hotel & Spa isn’t just for hotel guests, it also draws in locals and other holidaymakers. Tip: The bar doesn’t close until everyone has left. So if you’re looking for a cosy nightcap you’ll probably find like-minded people here. Head outside: When the sun shines down, you and your friends can take your coffee or cocktail outdoors to the terrace lounge.

Daily from 9 a.m. until the last guest leaves
