There are plenty of mountain restaurants, which are mostly self-service, but Bruhin's at Weissfluhgipfel, whilst expensive offers great service and brilliant rustic or gourmet cooking, whilst Parsenn Weissflujoch also enjoys a good reputation. In the resort itself there is a wide variety, mostly hotel based, but it is advised that you check the tourist office's guidebook so you find what you're looking for. There are two Chine restaurants, several Italian restaurants including Al Ponte (good pizza and steak), and the Carretta, with its home-made pasta.
Apres-ski is relatively good- there are lots of bars, discos and nightclubs, and a large casino at the Hotel Europe. However, the nature of the clientele at Davos itself means that the guests are often quieter, the drinks more sophisticated, expensive and sometimes less exciting. The liveliest place in town is the Chami, (popular with locals), whilst the Ex-Bar draws all ages. The most popular clubs are the Cabanna and the Cava Davos (of the hotel Europe). Boarders should head to Bolgenschanze and Bolgen-Plaza.
Davos is more than just a ski resort. It has been world famous as a wellness retreat since the Victorian era, and therefore is developed as a town. There are plenty of shops and other diversions; great sports facilities, Europe's biggest natural ice rink, supplemented by more artificial venues; hosting ice hockey as well as other events. Winter walking and tobogganing are also popular, whilst night-skiing takes place every Friday night on Hohenweg. Finally, if you want to explore beyond Davos, it is possible to visit st. Moritz by car or rail, and Arosa, Laax-Flims and Lenzerheide.
