The night life in Davos Klosters is sometimes known to start in the light of day. In winter in particular, the numerous ski bars and sun terraces in the ski regions are responsible for this. Ahead of all, the Jatzhütte on the Jakobshorn. From the moment the skiers glide down into the valley the fun begins: For example on the Bolgen Plaza in Davos, at the foot of the Jakobshorn. As soon as the sun disappears, the centre of the Bolgen Plaza transforms into a party zone full of flirtatious fun. At least until 7:00pm. Then the party continues in the après-ski temple 'Chalet Bolgen - After 7' only 50 metres away. The Bolgenschanze is also only a stone's throw away. It has long been a cult place and is considered one of the most famous snowboard bars in Switzerland.
Après-ski lovers will also find the right thirst-quenchers at the valley stations of Parsenn, the largest ski resort in Davos Klosters. More precisely, directly opposite the valley station of the Parsennbahn with the après-ski bar Parsenn Gada. Another good starting point for a night tour through Davos is the Montana Bar. Anyone who prefers to take the ski run down into Klosters arrives directly at the Graströchni, where the coffees are served with a wide selection of shots, guaranteeing a lively atmosphere.
Those who prefer live music should visit the Hard Rock Hotel Davos on Fridays: During the Friday Night Live Music Sessions, national and international music greats and newcomers perform. Collectors' items from famous show stars such as a silk shirt by Elvis Presley or musical instruments by Bruce Springsteen and George Harrison provide the right atmosphere.
In recent years the Pöstli Club in Hotel Morosani has become a jewel in the party town of Davos. As such, no club in Davos boasts queues to its doors in the high season quite as long as those outside the Pöstli. Here, locals party alongside international holiday-makers. At weekends the best parties are usually found here.
The legendary "Ex Bar" in Davos is a unique success story: it's already rocking from 17.00 - when other bar operators are still serving afternoon tea. Tourists and locals plan their nights-out in the "Ex", often staying there longer than planned or returning later in the evening to bring the evening to a close there.
There are bars that have made an indelible mark on the history of classic holiday destinations and cities. Harry’s Bar in Venice, the first Hard Rock Café in London and the Dracula Club in St. Moritz for example. In Klosters there are two such institutions. Alongside Chesa Bar, where 1950s American stars of stage, screen and literature danced on the tables, is the Casa Antica - a night time meeting point at the resort since 1959.
Generations of - in the earlier days in particular American and British - guests have met up during the winter season at this disco bar. Here they have partied, the bon vivants of the stylish 1950s, the wild 1960s and the funky 1970s. At that time even more than nowadays, winter holiday destinations promised to act as hide-aways, far removed from urban civilisation. Entirely without Facebook, iPhone and Youtube. Instead with great style and class.
Today, Casa Antica continues to play host to numerous international guests. The club is also popular amongst holiday guests from Zurich, as well as the locals. A cosmopolitan classic indeed, which is always worth a visit. During the week the "Casa" tends to be more of a classic bar. At the weekends renowned DJs bring the dance floor to life in style. Guests from 21 years of age are welcome daily from mid December until Easter, from 22:00 hrs. Casa Antica is closed in the summer.
