Apres Ski

Sauze d’Oulx Apres ski is as lively or as quiet as you wish. There is a wide range of bars, pubs and clubs with many good and inexpensive restaurants and pizzerias or how about a meal up the mountain followed by a torch light descent?

Bars & Clubs

Sauze d’Oulx has numerous bars and restaurants to choose from. It’s proximity to Turin means that there are a number of bars catering for the Italian trade so if you want to experience the famous Italian aperitivo scene then head for Caffe della Seggiovia. This wine bar opened in the summer of 2010 and quickly became a hit with the locals and holiday makers alike. The selection of wines is great with many of them being sourced from the local Piedmont region famous for its Barolo. They also have some great bottled beers from a local micro brewery. Another good bar to experience the aperitivo scene is the Assiette. Both of these bars offer a good selection of free nibbles during the aperitivo hour.

If you are looking for cocktails after a hard day on the slope then Moncrons won’t disappoint. Next door to Moncrons you’ll find The Derby bar which has a large open fire and an excellent selection of skiing and snowboarding videos.

Popular with the Apres crowd is Bar Mira which offers good bar food and keeps the crowds entertained with live music. They also show all the major sports events on multiple screens throughout the bar. There’s also wifi for those wishing to get online.

Ghost bar is also a good lively spot straight off the slopes and offers good snacks to replenish the energy levels however if you’re looking for something a little substantial they do make some pretty awesome burgers.

Paddy McGinty’s is lively pretty much whatever the time is and also offers wifi. They have live music on several nights and with a real fire and food on offer its popular as you come off the slopes. Further into the old town Il Lampione is a popular bar with the locals which is always a good sign. They have live music every Thursday evening and a wine tasting evening can be arranged if you wanted. Wifi is available.

Another venue for live music is Vagabondi’s which is in the main square and has a mixture of Italian and English music. Most bars stay open late however if you are looking to dance into the small hours of the morning then Sauze has a nightclub that’ll keep you going until the small hours. This is situated underneath Mira’s in the centre of town.

Restaurants

Sauze d’Oulx has over 30 restaurants to choose from ranging from traditional pasta houses in the old town to restaurants that will serve you a 10 course gastronomic extravagance. Below are some personal recommendations.

Del Falco was established in 1991 by Vince Hawkins and his wife Annette. They relocated from their original restaurant in 2006 and you can now find them in the old town. It has a full a la carte menu to choose from or you can opt to have the skiers menu that offers you a three course meal that is guaranteed to recharge the energy levels after a day on the slopes. A personal favorite of mine is the fillet steak, simply awesome! See reviews for this restaurant on tripadvisor.

L’Ortiche is located just before you enter the old town in an area that was previously known as the nettle patch, hence its name. It serves typical Italian dishes alongside such fare as breast of Pheasant stuffed with foie gras. Black Angus steak is also on the menu and comes highly recommended. They have an extensive wine list to ensure you get the best possible wine to compliment your meal. They have a website with more information. www.ortiche.com

Il Cantun del Barbabuc is situated just off the main street that runs through the old town. It offers traditional Italian food in a cosy, warm environment. As you enter through the large wooden door you step into a vaulted dinning room with an open fire and you immediately feel welcomed by Luca and Stefania. The menu offers you a selection of dishes made with seasonal regional produce all complemented by an excellent wine list. See reviews for this restaurant on tripadvisor.

Gaute la Nata For authentic Italian food and hospitality then this restaurant is a must. You’ll get a warm welcome from the staff who will do all they can to please. The chef is a larger than life character and don’t be surprised to see him amongst the tables during service cracking a few jokes. A family run restaurant that makes you part of the family!

Sugo’s in the old town is the place to head for if you’re a lover of pasta. They have been established now in Sauze for many years and offer excellent food reasonably priced. All their pasta is freshly made on the premises. Each dish is for a minimum of 2 people so if you wanted to mix and match a little then make sure you’re taking a healthy appetite.
