Aspen takes the après scene to new heights all winter long, and après in Aspen can be just as fun as a powder day on Ajax. With a variety of bars and restaurants to choose from, there is certainly a spot for everyone's taste.
Ski and be seen at CHICA, the newest restaurant from 50 Eggs Hospitality Group, taking guests through a culinary journey of flavor. Located right off the ski lift at the renowned Residents at The Little Nell, the hotspot boasts indoor and outdoor dining with an expansive patio space, outdoor bar, and breathtaking views of Aspen Mountain. Serving an array of show stopping dishes created by celebrity chef Lorena Garcia, CHICA’s playfully, vibrant atmosphere is not to be missed.

La Crêperie du Village
Après with a French flair at this local French Alpine Bistro. La Crêperie poses a more refined après-experience, serving up delicacies in a chalet setting. Enjoy hand-made cocktails, raqulette and fondue for a European take on your typical après scene.
Synonymous to "après ski", Ajax Tavern's mountainside patio offers some of the best post-ski drinks in town. Enjoy rose, truffle fries, and the best people-watching in town on this sun-drenched outdoor hangout.
J Bar at the Hotel Jerome
Head over to the historic J-Bar, where cowboys, miners, and the legendary Hunter S. Thompson used to gather for a pint. Still a lively classic, you can enjoy vintage cocktails in a western setting. Don't forget to try the legendary J-Bar Burger which has been described as "Aspen's Best Burger".
Curl and Cocktails in the Hotel Jerome courtyard! This winter season, gather together with friends and family at the Hotel Jerome Winter Garden to enjoy the sport of curling, the quirky icebound game with origins going back to early 16th century Scotland that is now a modern day Olympic sport. They're pairing signature Jerome beverages with a game of friendly competition to create the perfect winter experience to share through the season. Experienced players and newcomers alike can feel comfortable stepping onto the ice.
