Resort life

If you're the sort of individual that wants to be housed, fed and watered in a charming sweet little village with cow bells hanging from rickety old sheds, don't bother with this place. Although better looking than it was, it is still a massive drab mountain town. It does have choice however and although generally expensive you can find some cheaper options and a solid slice of snowboard lifestyle. It attracts international conferences particularly at the end of January, but with this comes some excellent sports centres, lots of shops, and even a Casino!!

Eating

Two words that don’t go together in Davos, cheap and eating out (okay 3 words..) but if you have the cash then the options for dining high on the hog are excellent. There is a good choice of restaurants offering every type of cuisine, ranging from local dishes to Chinese (above casino £20-30). You will also find a few fast food joints: Try the Kebab (and Burger) place next to the main Coop. Great pizzas at Padrino and some Indian and Thai (Davos Dorf)

Nightlife

Night life in Davos rocks despite the wallet demolition. There is a good choice of bars and late night clubs, with live bands and artists playing seven nights a week. Most places pump out modern music but a few play sickening euro pop to please the apres skiing nerds. The Bolgenschanze Hotel is one of the best hangouts, providing the full snowboard lifestyle package and gets packed out with loads of chicks gagging for it. Check out www.davosbynight.ch for all the big nights.
