Shopping & Nightlife
As “the most glamorous alpine destination of the world”, St. Moritz is the number one among holiday destinations in the mountains. When it comes to shopping, Via Serlas lives up to New York’s 5th Avenue or Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles – it’s just a little smaller. On the highest shopping mile in Europe one finds from Jimmy Choo over Gucci to Louis Vuitton everything that has rank and name in the international mode business.
High-end to fashion shops line up next to fine food shops, sports shops and souvenir shops. Wandering past the renowned Badrutt’ s Palace Hotel and glamorous shop windows, one spend quite some time window shopping and people-watching. Particularly on cold winter evenings, when the windows are lit up even more brightly, and the entire Via Serlas is festively lit.
The St. Moritz nightlife includes well-known bar classics and new clubs with international flair. For après ski, one meets up for some mulled wine or a glass of champagne at the Roo Bar in the village centre. Live-music dancing is best enjoyed at the Stübli at the Schweizer Hof. Right next door, down the “Bar Street”, one can enjoy a classic cocktail or a glass of selected wine or champagne from the surprisingly extensive wine-list at the wicked QN-Bar.
Stylish ambience with a touch of Italian charm is waiting for guests at the new Balthazar Lounge in the premises of the former Cascade, while next door, at the Vivai Dance Club, the young and young at heart dance and party to house beats until the early morning hours.
Well-known legends, such as the Sunny Bar at the Kulm Hotel, the Dracula Club at the start of the bobsled run, or the King’s Club at the Palace Hotel are not to be left out on the list, just like the largest whisky bar in the world at the Hotel Waldhaus. One can end the evening in style at the Lobby Bar at Reine Victoria or the Keller Bar of the Laudinella.
Casino & Classic Cars
At the highest located casino of Switzerland you will find at the Casino St. Moritz not only casino operations but also a broad evening program and the Ivory Ball Lounge Bar with classic cocktails and traditional drinks. The casino offers among others American Roulette, Black Jack, Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker and over 80 slot machines.
Worldwide known for its glamour and class, it is not a huge surprise that St. Moritz has become a meeting place for many old timer enthusiasts. As a scene of various events, one can witness automobile tradition in the summer, as well as in winter. Top-class meetings like British Classic Car Meeting St. Moritz, Passione Engadina or the WinterRaid take place every year with the Engadine mountains as a backdrop.
The Event Bernina Gran Turismo is connecting with its mountain race at the closed Bernina Pass very strongly to the historical automobile weeks of 1929 and 1930.
The St. Moritz Lifestyle is effectively set in scene by outstanding artists on numerous historic St. Moritz advertising posters from the early 20th century. The posters will trigger your desire to travel. Nowadays, they are in worldwide demand than never before. Many of the motives are an ideal souvenir and available at the St. Moritz Shop in the village or the on-line Shop.
