Megève Nightlife

  • Before and After Nigtclub

    Sometimes i'm ready to change the big noisy bar to the small cozy one. Wake Up Bar is one of them. There are very hospitable barmen (and owners at the same time) who will never leave you without attention.

    Cargo Club is the oldest nightclub in Megeve but don't think it's far from the modern nightclub. You can enjoy the music of any style here and I'm sure you will have a great time as I had!more pics are in the travelogue

Megève Local Customs

  • by megevan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    In June, on Saint Jean day, the custom is to prepare fires at the top of the mountains around Megeve. It is a nice event to watch at night time. It is a Christian Catholic custom but the root of this custom seems to come from celtic customs to worship the god called Belennos. More traditions about Megeve can be found on http://www.mageva.com, the old celtic name of Megeve is MagEva.
