If full moon night make you crazy or just in a fool mood, why not to plan a white night.
Relax with a pleasant après ski athmospere and some "Gluhwein" (hot wine) glasses. Then wait the night by having a cheese fondue at the Kulm restaurant hotel after your ski day around the Gornergrat paradise.
After all you would not leave this cosy place, but let's go downhill by skiing under the lights of the full Moon and enjoy these unique sensations...
Dress Code: Warm clothes and ski equipement.
This is a Bar & Lounge place with a movie theater. They use it as well for club-nights and special parties. There is always some kind of an exhibition on as well. It is worth going to see a movie in there as it is quite a special place. Lamps will disappear before the movie starts, there are different kind of comfortable chairs, drinks are available during the movie. Sometimes they serve dinner as well during the movies (Tapas and more). Check out their programme on the Internet or walk by during the day to check it out. It is not possible to make movie reservations by phone. Place opens at 17:00 till 02:00.
Dress Code: Normal clothes are fine. However it is kind of a trendy place...whatever you feel comfortable with in such an environment.
Since December 2007, a (snow)boat is beaching on the Vispa river side. This Après-Ski and Lounge Bar is designed as a boat by the famous local artist Heinz Julen. You could enjoy a drink or a light meal or barbecue on the deck floor. Relax on the roof on large confortable wooden bench. You could also head to the underground floor in a more intimist lounge bar.
Open from 8AM to 8PM
What ever you want you will get it at the GramPi's!
Just choose your floor:
First floor: Eat Pizza or Pasta...
Ground floor: Drink a Beer...
Undergroud: Dance till late...
Penthouse: Impossible to Sleep...
A new and cosy bar (starting from December 2006) with a vinothek to enjoy your palate! Taste the fabulous Cornalin! The modern interior is designed by the local Heinz Julen.
Live-music every evening during snow season! No entry fee charge as in all bars and clubs in Zermatt as usual!
Hunger? On the first floor you will find the Alpine dining: Restaurant Heimberg - Valais kitchen in old timber building. Thirsty? Go back to the bar!
You can easly miss it, so watch the steps when you go in and especailly when you go out ;-)
A small but long bar where around a dozen of people (please squeezzed!) could take place to taste a wide range of spirits... you will also find a small and more initmate room if you could reach the bottom...
Try the famous local Sinalco, but don't ask Anny about the secret home-made recipe... I have only recognized the Abricotine and Williamine so far... keep the throat warm in any case ;-)
Very popular for apres-ski sessions. Do not miss also the Schneewittchen nightclub downstairs if you are a nightbird.
As the Papperla self description said:
"One day on the slopes without Apres Ski at the Papperla Pub is like Sex without an orgasm. Here you'll find Ski bunnys, Yetis, Racers, Ski Instructors and tons of party people doing there thing to old classics and Apres Ski music. It doesn't matter if you're outside at the "Snow Bar" or inside, our Papperla Pub team, Liveband and DJ make for a great atmosphere and loads of fun.
Papperla Pub is also a destination point in the Summer. We have one of the largest selections of beer on tap in Zermatt, free Internet corner, free wireless and the casual Pub atmosphere which makes for a great meeting place for the young and old. "
Reviewed and approuved ;-)

The North Wall Bar is somewhat off the beaten path...it's a small bar that stays open late and services the service industry...
The bar has good beers and good darts, lots of books about mountain climbing and lots of photos of the people who do it....
I can't believe that on ALL of these Zermatt pages on VT, there is no mention on the North Wall OR the Broken (or the barrel in particular...) Ho hum, will write more about them when im not already late for uni.
The Bar Club is attached to the Cinema in Zermatt. They had films in English and several films on the Matterhorn whilst we were here...never made it to any as it clashed with our evening meal in the hotel. Appparently the bar there is decorated in a sort of art deco style and has some unusual art work displayed on the walls...ah well next time we visit....
Dress Code: Informal
There are lively clubs in Zermatt, but if you want to relax and take a moment to unwind the Star Bar in the Hotel Zermattahoff is a pleasant retreat. I found this place suprisingly interesting and cozy. There was a gentleman there singing songs in all languages, when ever someone came in either French, German, Italian or English he would sing in your native tongue. It is a nice place to begin or end your evening a few toasty cocktails or cordials and you are either ready to rock or ready to sleep . . . you decide.
Dress Code: Dressy
to have a drink,
to warm up,
or to catch a hangover...
Dress Code: No ski shoes admitted...
