Flaine has a reputation as family resort
and deservedly so with all the children's facilities available (such as
the Green Mouse children's ski club) and family oriented hotels.
Of course the principle of supply and demand means that there is an inevitable
knock on effect to the apres ski situation. Visitors should therefore not expect Flaine
to compete with some of the wilder party resorts that the French Alps has to offer.
The main bars are The Flying Dutchman and Diamant Noir in Flaine Foret and Le White Pub
(formerly the White Grouse) in Flaine Forum.
The Flying Dutchman is, as you would imagine, a Dutch pub and probably the "grooviest" of the three with
pumping beats in the bar.
It has a nice ambience and some heaters out front for those who enjoy quieter drinking.
One hundred metres further along the road is the second bar in Flaine Foret called the Diamant Noir. This is located underground and is accessed via a tunnel. At the entrance to this is an outside bar for those weary skiers in need of refreshment straight off the piste. Inside, the bigger
bar has pool tables and a distinctly Irish feel which makes it a popular choice for fans of Guinness.
The Le White Pub is located down in Flaine Forum and has numerous beers from the British Isles as well as all sorts of more exotic numbers. This is another large bar and also has a restaurant area with standard pub food. A good start to a night on the piste and there's even free wi-fi.
Eating out in Flaine encompasses the usual French Savoie specialty restaurants and pizzerias.
In Flaine Forum, Pizzeria Chez Pierrot also serves Savoyard specialties and home made pastries with take away possible for pizzas. Les Chalets du Michet allows visitors to sample traditional cuisine in a shepherd's hut. Fixed menu and a la carte available.
La Perdrix Noire or Black Grouse is situated in Flaine Foret and the owners used to run the White Grouse, hence the name. This laid back comfortable bar-restaurant has grills, rotisserie, fish and meat dishes amongst its specialties.
