Apres Ski and Nightlife

Après-ski 

Definition: Après-ski (French: after skiing) refers to going out, having drinks, dancing, and generally socializing after skiing. Skiers often stop at bars right after their last run of the day while still wearing all their ski gear.

Kicking back after a day on the slopes with food and drinks is a time honored tradition in ski culture. At Vail, the apres scene is as varied as the terrain. Grab a beer and watch skiers and snowboarders make their way down the last run of the day at the slopeside decks of Garfinkels, The Chop House, or Tavern at Arrabelle in Lionshead or Los Amigos looking up at Pepi's Face from Vail Village. A trip to Vail isn't complete without a slice at Vendetta's and a sing along with live music at The Red Lion. Or, kick off your boots at The 10th at Mid Vail, enjoy a fresh squeezed cocktail by the fire and let Gondola One be your last run of the day. You could spend an entire month at Vail and not visit all the options!

Nightlife

Once the sun goes down, the party starts. Vail is a pedestrian friendly town, with too many restaurants and bars within walking distance or a short free bus ride to list. Whether you are looking for a laid back bar scene or an all night dance party, you're in for a good time. 

Some of the bars, dancing, and live music venues are listed below. Have fun and drink lots of water - Vail's elevation is over 8,000 feet, so staying hydrated is key to making the most out of tomorrow's day on the mountain!
