Le Grand Bornand is hardly the apres-ski capital of the Alps and, if you’re expecting a Chamonix or even a Les Deux Alpes, you’ve come to the wrong place. Nevertheless there are some 36 bars in the resort and surrounding villages. Les Deux Guides (+33 450 02 23 65) has a typical British pub atmosphere, and Le Thovet (+33 899 02 28 14) has a good selection of wines. La Floria Cafe Givre (+33 450 02 00 85) is a snack-bar-pub which hosts torchlight descents and karaoke in the evening. Globe (+33 450 27 07 59), in the main village, show sports events on a big-screen TV. The Green Monkey (+33 450 69 76 55) is a popular bar in Chinaillon with a good atmosphere. Best bets for late-night entertainment is Lalu nightclub (+33 450 60 14 67) which has theme nights and is open until 5am. It provides a free shuttle-bus for its clientele in high season, and on Fridays and Saturdays during low season. The resort has a 800-sq-metre covered ice-skating rink, and other non-skiing activities include sleigh rides, snowshoeing, paragliding, hot-air ballooning, and a cinema.
