If you want to sample surrounding slopes, Vail is close enough for a quick day trip - only seventy miles away. During the summer many tourists take a route through the Rocky Mountains with pitstops in Steamboat Springs, Boulder, Estes Park and other areas surrounding Rocky Mountain National Park. When the weather is warmer and the roads are clear there are a lot of options in the area. However, if youve come to Aspen during ski season its unlikely youll venture far a field.

The next best thing to a circus in Aspen. Hilarious magic and juggling acts all done with great fun.

This one time country and western honky tonk is now a major disco dance club. Best dance floor action in Aspen.

Crystal Palace
300 E, Hyman
A fixture in Aspen, two seatings nightly with good food and biting satire.

Club Chelsea
415 E. Hyman
Another great dance venue in Aspen. Fantastic DJ's and live lusic nightly. Very hip and really popular.

A quiet, sophisticated, and historic bar. Located in the beautiful Hotel Jerome and favorite for many years.

Slopeside in Aspen, The Tavern is a big draw for catching afternoon rays as the lifts start to close. If you don’t find what you want there, the crowd spreads out to The Terrace Room Bar at the Little Nell Hotel, Mezzaluna, 39 Degrees at the SKY Hotel, Little Annie’s, Cooper Street Pier, the noisy and crowded J-Bar (Jack Nicholson’s hangout at the Jerome) and the Red Onion. Apres-ski comes in all varieties here, from The Cantina, with its very happy hour (have a margarita in the compadre size), to the quiet and genteel Hotel Jerome Library Bar.

At night, the music and dance beat begin to take over. Earlier in the evening, the high-energy place to find out who’s in town is Mezzaluna with its brassy horseshoe-shaped bar. It’s a good singles bar and gives you the best in upscale people-watching. The Shadow Mountain Lounge at the St. Regis has live music. The Little Nell bar and Syzygy have jazz. DJs rule at Bar Aspen, The Speakeasy and The Lava Room.

Jimmy’s, an American restaurant and bar, is where the swank dinner crowd hits the dance floor on Saturday night for its signature Salsa Night. You’ll also find what they claim to be one of the largest tequila menus in the country (more than 65).

The Wine Spot at the Grand Hyatt is a civilized quiet place to enjoy a drink. The bar has a Cruvinet system of preserving and dispensing wine by the glass.
Eric’s Bar, Cigar Bar and Aspen Billiards all attract singles and have lots of microbrews on tap (great scotch, too). Another beer spot is McStorlie’s Pub. A relatively mixed crowd congregates in the Red Onion and Little Annie’s. Cooper Street Pier is very much a local and college student hangout.

There are many other night spots in town; pick up a copy of Aspen Magazine’s Traveler’s Guide for a list, or check local papers, The Aspen Times and The Aspen Daily News for current happenings.
