The top Après-Ski: L'Abarset
Have you gone skiing and want to have fun with good music and good vibes?

L'Abarset is mainly known for the parties that are held from 4 pm to 9 pm thanks to the DJs who play live on the famous terrace. One of the innovations of this year has been the lighting technology and the improvement of the sound equipment so that you can live this unique experience to the fullest.
As those of us who live in Andorra already know, this place won't disappoint. L'Abarset offers music practically EVERY day of the week. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are reserved for top resident DJs like Kurt Heisz. On Thursdays, they have is funky, American hip-hop and R&B.

The establishment covers all meals of the day. From breakfast to dinner, in the form of tapas, or more consistent and elaborate dishes to regain strength after a day on the slopes.
