Winter 19 Morzine Highlights
Each winter Morzine Source Magazine round up the best bits. The new openings, the anniversaries, the new activities. The key features that will really make your holiday go with a bang!
THE DIXIE BAR TURNS 30!
Bon anniversaire to Pascal and his team at Morzine’s Dixie Bar! Whilst it’s true that every good global destination has a good Irish bar, we like to think of ours as being something truly special. Owner Pascal Anselmet has certainly seen Morzine change over the years, but the Dixie Bar continues to offer the same much-loved authentic après experience, especially when the Dixie Micks are in town (head to page 55 of our current issue for this season’s dates). Behind the bar these days you’ll find a larger than ever selection of ales, beers, spirits and wine, plus the same warm, friendly craic we’ve all come to know and love. Keep a close eye on the Source events calendar this winter for some extra special events.
MORZINE GOES BURLESQUE
The team behind Morzine’s Café Chaud just can’t stop opening new bars. Last winter Hideout Hostel became the place to go for relaxed evening drinks and incredibly tasty food. This year they’ve gone down below, transforming the bar we all knew and loved as Le Paradis into something exceptionally different. Paying homage to the bar’s previous owner Madame Laury, who danced at the famous Moulin Rouge in Paris, Laury’s is all about incredible live entertainment and fantastic drinks created by a team of cocktail alchemists. Co-owner Kyle Dickson told Source “With Laury’s we wanted to throw Morzine a curveball. A cocktail bar hidden away from the crowds with table service and great live music. You can expect a blend of jazz, funk, cabaret and soul with a hint of more alternative entertainment thrown in to keep you on your toes”.
