Open fro 7.30 in the morning to midnight. Days start early and finish late at Concordia Lounge Bar & Restaurant. The inviting atmosphere of the recently face-lifted lounge bar is an almost fatal attraction 17 hours a day for anyone passing through the centre of town, on their way to the ski slopes or out shopping. Make a good start to the day with a still warm croissant or slice of homemade cake, apple maybe, or buckwheat, for breakfast. Enjoy your lunch at an outdoor table or inside in the ancient wood-pannelled dining room decorated with old Giacomelli family photos. Order a Piccolo Tibet club sandwich, a mountain flavour Big Burger, large mixed salad, cheese board from the Dairy or rosti and melted cheese.
For afternoon tea, the best armchairs are the ones around the fireplace, where you'll be served a selection of teas accompanied by homemade biscuits and cakes.
It's Apres ski time, so it's time to move outdoors to the Ice Bar, chiselled out of a cube of snow, inside which the well-wrapped up barman is making cocktails while jazz and lounge music play in the background. A big favourite is the Bombardino, invented right here in Livigno in 1969, a mix of equal parts vov, milk and whisky, served with whipped cream, no sugar. Or try vin brulè, Aperol spritz or any of a number of
cocktails. Time passes pleasantly, and before you know it, it's aperitif time, or aperidinner, as it's known locally, and is a key moment in the day, featuring a huge buffet stretching from 17.30 to 21.00. A stream of tasty dishes keep arriving on the long table, from fried meatballs to steaming risotto to vegetable tempura to fish soup to rye bread canapès to....
And for afters? Live music to round off your evening.
