Part of Val Thorens' nightlife for 25 years, Malaysia is a bar and nightclub. Entrance is free, as with the other Val Thorens nightclubs, except on the occasional special night such as New Year's Eve. It opens at 10pm, and alternates DJ sets and live music. Abraxas are a regular band, well worthing seeing.
Around 1am, they open the doors from the large bar and stage area under the entrance by the waffle stand, through to the club and dancefloor. The whole of Malaysia has enough space for 2500 people. (There's said to be 700m2 of dancefloor in total). From 2am, Malaysia is in nightclub mode, until it closes at 5am.
Often, there are more boys than girls in the club.

At the end of the rue Piétonne de Caron, below the Arcelle apartments, is the Baramix. It opens at 4pm, for apres-ski in the quieter upstairs bar. You can order a plate of charcuterie, supplied by the specialist shop next door, La Belle en Cuisse. It's gradually transformed into a club. Dancing is in the downstairs bar, where a DJ plays dance tracks. Open til 4am.
Under le Bowling is a late-night bar with a DJ, called la Chapelle.
