Lenk Switzerland Bars and Nightlife
A Teepee Bar For Apres Sets The Party Scene
PubClub.com finds the party placesand loves the nightlife in friendly Lenk.
They don't exactly party 'till the cows come home in Lenk (and there are cows grazing on the hills).
But Lenk, a lovely little town in the Swiss Alps, does have some fun nightlife and a funky aki apes bar. Lenk is primarily a family resort known more for its cheese making than its nightlife,but all those ski instructors, lift operators, groomers, service industry workers and fun-seeking visitors do need places to enjoy post-slopes drinks and to talk about their day's accomplishments.
Lenk is proof positive that no matter the place in the world, bars are an integral part of the social fabric and there are always people around who enjoy going to them.
This little village responds with a simple solution, a handfull of fun places that's easier to navigate than the bunny slopes.
And it all starts in a teepee.
It's possible to get tipsy at the Tipi bar with the Tipi koffee.
The Tipi Bar is a really an Indian tipi. It's small and round on the inside, the bar stools look like tom-tom drums and there's a fireplace in the center. Drinks here are cheap – as low as 4 francs for a beer, 5.50-7 for mixed drinks and 4-5 for shots – but the real "tipping point" is the The Tipi koffee (CHF 7).
The Tipi koffee is schnapps and koffee with a whipped cream topping that warms the body all the way down to the toes. It makes the Tipi Bar the prefect ski apres place but theres' no need to blast down from the slopes. It opens at 4 and since it closes at 11, it's the first stop on the locals' tour of the small village's nightlife circuit.
The friendly Andy (center) makes Andy's Pub a perfect place for a pint.
Just a few steps away – across the parking lot, in fact – is Andy's Pub.
Appropriately named because it's a true pub and Andy may well come out to greet you, the place is a place to settle down for beers, drinks or shots. TVs show the latest World Cup events, there's games to keep some occupied but the real attraction Andy's is that it's there, a conversation-friendly bar with like-minded friendlys people.
The lively bartender makes sure there are fun times in the Hischen Bar.
Locals end the night by the train station at the Wildstrubel. It's in the hotel, there's dancing and it's open until 3. Those who don't want to dance but still want to party hitch their post to the Hischen Bar, a basic place with a long bar. cold draft beers and an engaging bartender.
A more elegant choice for quieter evenings is the lounge at the Lenkerhof hotel. Relaxation with entertainment is the focus here, as a subtle piano player and singer provide outstanding background music. If the mood fits, they can also pick up the pace a bit to match the crowd.
The beautiful lobby of the Lenkerhof hotel has live entertainment.
