    Dixies Bar: 'Happening place' (apparently)

    by timlloydlangston Updated Jan 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The nightlife in Morzine is not it's big selling point, although there are some bars in town that aren't like the Moon (lacking any atmosphere). Dixies is actually a series of small bars all linked together and is a bit of a rabbit warren. It's loud and lively and I was at least double the age of their average customer. I preferred the Irish Bar which had comfy leather sofas (you learn to appreciate those kind of things at my age), but there's really something for everyone.

    Dress Code: Laid back on dress code - "snowboarder chillout" probably sums it up.

    Bar Robinson: Mutzig!!

    by helsbels Updated Apr 27, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bar Robinson is a lovely little french run bar, usually quiet but absolutley packed out from about 5pm til closing time at 7.30. The place to be and be seen, and they sell a strong beer called mutzig (7.2%!) which is the only thing to drink, not litterally, but its nicknamed 'the mutzig bar!'
    Lovely terrace when its warm enough which is great because most of the time its too packed inside to find a place to stand!

    Dress Code: No dress code but theres always lots of cool looking boardy dudes so get out your coolest hoodies and hats!!

    Buddah Bar: Chill out at the Buddah Bar.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a lovely pub/bar in the center of morzine. The decor and atmosphere inside can't be faulted, really chilled out. Good music, tends to be 'soft rock,' easy to listen to and suits the atmosphere.
    The staff are friendly, waiter service avaliable aswell as bar service. Average prices, open til about 1am or 2am.

    Dress Code: None.

    Bar Robinson: The home of MUTZIG

    by Caddy Written Jan 3, 2011

    Bar Robinson serves just one beer on tap - MUTZIG. It's about 7%, so be warned!

    This is a fantastic place to hang out after a hard day on the slopes skiing or snowboarding. Last orders is at 7.30pm and you will be shown the door if you are not out by 8pm.

    Morzine - L'Opera/Cavern/Buddha bar: Plenty of drinking, not very much for the dancing!

    by ReneeC9 Written Mar 5, 2013

    A small complex of bars, the cavern (pool tables etc) and Buddha bar (more dancing and packed with people) were pretty much your main choices. Chilled out, but seriously felt like I had fallen into the hot tub time machine back into the 80's! In the 5/6 nights I was out there, I think a maximum of 2 songs from outside the 80's were played. Not the best, when you feel like getting a groove on! There is a limit, no matter how drunk you are, to how many times you can grin cheesily and wave your arms in the air enthusiastically. Saying this, i did have a few good nights there, only real downfall was the music which didn't allow for dancing.

    Robinson's was a good place to go for a mutzig as described in previous reviews! but once again, not a dancing hot-spot, but would def recommend going there for a mutzig (or a few!) just get there early if you want a table inside! There was also a delicious bakery to the right of it to get sweet treats to soak up the mutzig :D

    But I must give a dire warning in regards to the only nightclub in the village, L'Opera. They really did have a 'only nightclub in the village' complex going on! Arrogant rude place to go. 12 euros to get in, drinks were ridiculously expensive and once having paid this extortionate price to get in, the music was beyond ***. It was some obscure drum and bass music that no-one in a group of 10+ recognised at all (with a diverse and broad music knowledge I might add). When the DJ started some truly awful rapping, it sealed the deal as the worst nightclub in the world. So once again, there was no possibility of dancing there either. Stayed there for literally 20 mins and left because it was so awful.

    To really add insult to injury, the bouncers into this club were not only rude beyond words, but threw a very small girl down the stairs of the club causing her to fall into me nearly taking me down the stairs too. The reason? She did not respect the big burly bouncer enough apparently. On speaking to this girl outside the club to see if she was okay later on, she informed me that he had also slapped her sister in the face. In the UK, I'm sure that would have been assault. But judging on the fact that I nearly got knocked off my feet again by the bouncers manhandling some other poor sods out about 2 minutes after being hit by falling girl. I didn't think there would have been much point and was more inclined to leave and never come back.

    Overall, Morzine was good for chilled out bars, but nothing at all in the way of a night out dancing or getting dressed up for. Best bet was Buddha bar and really hope they update their playlist soon, cos otherwise it would have been good! But cannot stress how much you should AVOID L'OPERA at all costs, don't even pay the 12 euros one night to see what it is like...it is awful and there is no way you are getting a refund from those bouncers... :s

    Dress Code: everywhere was very casual post ski-wear. No need to dress up at all. Come off the slopes as you are pretty much!

    Dress Code: my 3 club dresses remained unused! Wear whatever you like, as casual as you please, just off the slopes chic. No-where really to get dressed up for.

    Boudda Bar: Happening bar

    by Flash72 Written Jan 27, 2006

    Comfortable decked out, mostly English staff circulate and take your drinks orders without you having to go to the bar. In a group order a "giraffe", a long tube of beer which you can fill your glasses from as you go along.

    Dress Code: No dress code - ideal if you're just off the slopes
