1. DAVOS

Davos moshes with the big boys of Swiss après, thanks to the A to Z of different drinking styles here (C is for casino...). Drinks start flowing at 3 and just keep on going at slope-side. Get swept up in the sea of people outside Bolgen, dance along to whatever europop the DJ happens to be playing and stream down the slopes to whichever of the bars floats your boat. Try Rotliechtli for classic cocktails with frills, or the Carigiet piano bar and Grischa's Pulsa bar if you're made of money.

We recommend you the Hotel Waldhuus Davos for the best luxury experience. " we sleep well and the facilities are excellent and suit the whole family - from the wonderful staff in the Globi Kids Club, to the table tennis and minigolf for our teen and the pool and spa for us adults" - via Tripadvisor.

2. ST. MORITZ

Everything in St Moritz is one extravagance after another – and when you’re in a town that has a cocktail named after it (a rather good one at that) you know the après has already made quite an impression. Whip off the salopettes, and “dress to impress” for a night out in the Badrutt's legendary Kings Club, one of the oldest night spots here. Then, next on the tour of the great and the good, head to the Kulm's Sunny Bar, a bar-lined homage to the Cresta run with photos and trophies on the walls and gymnasium rings hanging from the ceiling...

We recommend you the Grand Hotel Kronenhof: "A truly remarkable experience from start to finish. A beautiful suite looking across the mountains, and the indoor pool - beyond description. Dining areas classical and the level of service I could not fault. Spa facilities, ice rink, easy access to the villages nearby." via Tripadvisor.

3. ZERMATT

Though better known for the kinds of dinners that require dress shirts and elbows off tables, there’s a super après scene beneath Zermatt’s elegant exterior. It has the gong to prove it - winning the World Snow Awards’ title of ‘World’s Best Après Ski Resort’ a couple of years back. To start strong, make your first stopping point the Hennu Stall on the Furi run home - where gluhwein’s on the menu, but flavoured vodkas and metre-long ‘skis’ of shots are the norm.

We recommend you Le Mirabeau Hotel & Spa Zermatt: "This was our first visit to Zermatt and hotel was excellent value for money for our 3-night stay.This hotel exceeded our expectations. Just a few steps away from the beautiful city center and all Cable cars." via Tripadvisor.

4. VERBIER

Known all over the mountains as the party destination of the rich and the royal, Verbier rocks from dusk till dawn. Start on the mountain, where Ice Cube below the Ruinettes chair throws the biggest piste-side bashes (just follow your ears). If the sun’s got its hat on, break up the home run with a stop at 1936’s Mongolian yurts and deck chairs or head straight back down to the village to attempt (but never succeed) to be first in the door everyone’s next stop - Pub Mont Fort. Order a Shaker (or two if it’s happy hour), and you’ll soon see why the après here’s considered some of the best on planet earth.

We recommend you to stay in W Verbier, cross the line and experience the world's first W Alpine Hotel and Residences. Perched on a Swiss Alp, above the clouds at 5'000 feet, the W Verbier mixes contemporary urban alpine design and the hottest W happenings.

5. KLOSTERS

Klosters has so many sophisticated spots you may have difficulty deciding where to sip your first flawlessly finished cocktail. Try out Chesa Grischuna (where Gene Kelly famously danced on the tables) on your way to the liveliest of the lot, Casa Antica, a converted three-storey barn with a cocktail menu that's been known to tempt our Royals. If you buy a bottle, they’ll keep it behind the bar throughout the week (if it lasts that long) and there’s even a nightclub here, if your mojitos turn on your mojo.

We recommend you the Hotel Walserhof: "This hotel is very comfortable. It feels like you're staying in a friend's high end mountain lodge. The food is 100% over the top. It's delicious and local. The staff treats you like you're a guest in their home. It's cozy, convenient and fairly priced. We will be back on our next trip to Klosters." via Tripadvisor.
