kustallIschgl Aprés Ski

Ischgl has a very lively nightlife reminiscent of its neighbour St Anton. There is the same cosmopolitan mix of international guests although the over-riding theme is more Germanic here, compared to the strong British presence of St Anton.
More than a dozen bars are lively as soon as the lifts close and more than thirty are on offer once the evening is in full swing.
Slopeside open air socialising is possible at a number of venues, notably the Marends at the hotel Elizabeth and the ski-in Schatzi Bar at the foot of the main home run.
The large and rustic Kuhstall at the Sporthotel Silvretta receives rave reviews (“best apres-ski in Ischgl” and “fantastic atmosphere”).
Across the road is Feuer & Eis, which has a DJ. Meanwhile, the two-storey Trofana Alm next to the five-star Hotel Trofana Royal, is full to bursting almost every evening before dinner and spectacularly good-natured.
There’s also the Sonne where there’s often live music and for country and western, it’s the Buffalo in the Hotel Grillam.

Other popular places throughout the evening include the Allegra American Bar in the hotel Tscla, the Guxa cocktail bar and Niki’s Stadl in the Piz Buin hotel; there are many more. The three discothèques are the Club Après in the Hotel Central, Feuer and Eis (Fire and Ice) and Madlein Wunderbar.
