Georgia Ski Holiday Packages Gudauri Europe
The vibrant après & nightlife in St Anton is world-famous. The main street and side lanes of St Anton are lined with restaurants and bars. In the evenings the streets are characterised by euphoric skiers and boarders returning from a big day on the slopes and in the après bars.

St Anton is a difficult place to demonstrate self-control when it comes to drinking alcohol or eating yummy stodgy food. Regarding smoking, willpower will be also hard for those trying to give up. 

St Anton Restaurants

Many of the hotels have meals included in the package (half board). You may prefer this after a tiring day on the slopes, but you won’t get to enjoy the variety of the St Anton dining experience. There are many, many dining establishments in St Anton. All of them have menus out the front so you can go for a wander and just take your pick.

Most restaurants serve traditional Tyrolean food and it seems compulsory to eat at least a few Wiener Schnitzels whilst in St Anton. Other restaurants have mixed international fare, with a few serving international specialty food such as Chinese, Indian and Mexican.

Around the gondola area there are a few fast-food outlets serving cheap meals. During the day, you can also get a cheap meal at the bakery in the main street.

Two favourite restaurants in the main street were the Bodega (tapas) and Pete (traditional done well).

St Anton Après & Nightlife

St Anton certainly knows how to do après. There are various slope-side bars that are packed with international skiers and boarders partying in unison. The skis and boards are lined up outside the bars in their hundreds and hundreds, and it’s difficult to understand how anyone can find their skis at the end of après.

For on slope drinks and fun the Krazy Kanguruh (kangaroo) is famous, and the Mooserwirt goes off. It is definitely NOT the place to go for a relaxing drink. The chorus of party-goers singing along to German music is great entertainment. Navigating the ski run down (which is often covered in icy bumps) in the dark post-après can be treacherous or interesting, depending upon your perspective.

There are also various bars in the St Anton town for après. Our favourite establishment was the Fanghouse bar opposite the Nasserein gondola base. Another favorite was the Kellar Bar at the Hotel Nassereinerhof.

Further into the evening, there are plenty of bars, live music and “discos” to choose from. On a Friday night it is not unusual to have at least 6 venues playing live music at the same time. Murrmel is a popular live music bar that gets packed with humans (we couldn't even get in!!). Bar Cuba is good for a quiet drink.
