La Terrasse information
In one of Chamonix' plumb spots – two Art-Deco storeys overlooking the main square and the chattering Arve – this British-style pub serves breakfast (9am to 11.30am), lunch (noon to 2.30pm), tapas (4pm to 9pm) and dinner (6.30pm to 9pm), then gives itself over to music (live or DJed) and dancing. Happy hours are from 4pm to 6pm and 9pm to 10pm.
