Vail Après – A New Tradition

Express Lift Bar & Grill
Stop in and enjoy $3 beer specials or chicken wings & beer for $10 after 3pm and spread out on their spacious patio. Located so close to the slopes you can put in your drink order with your skis still on your feet.

A local favorite where you can mingle with members of the Vail Ski Patrol after a hard day’s work. While you’re at it, try their award-winning pizza.

The Remedy Bar
With a backdrop of floor-to-ceiling windows displaying uninterrupted mountain views and an expansive patio illuminated by firepits year-round, this is the ideal place to unwind, socialize and imbibe.

Terra Bistro
One of the best happy hours in town. Perfect to sip on handcrafted cocktails while you enjoy a small plate or two.

La Tour
A Vail institution, La Tour’s cocktails are just as good as the award-winning food.

Bully Ranch
Locally famous mudslides and burgers hit the spot in this low-key, western-style bar after a day on the slopes. (Located in the Sonnenalp Resort.)

The Red Lion
"The place to be after you ski." Get there early for a prized spot on the front deck or the traditional ski bar inside, and experience après at one of Vail's classic establishments.

Established in 1964 by Pepi and Sheika Gramshammer, Pepi’s has been a favorite for dinner and après since the beginning. The restaurant serves traditional European fare, provides guests heated decks, and hosts live entertainment in the heart of Vail Village.

Bistro Fourteen at Eagle's Nest
The perfect spot to stop and enjoy the views, located at the top of the Eagle Bahn gondola. Stop for a beverage and food for the whole family up top before heading back down to the village.

Located directly at the base of Lionshead, “Garf’s” is a cornerstone après location and has been for years. The deck is arguably the best in Vail for sunny days. This large establishment has a classic sports bar vibe and an approachable menu perfect for a filling post-ski bite.

Tavern on the Square
Vail’s premiere après hot spot, Tavern on the Square is just steps from the Eagle Bahn gondola in Lionshead. Enjoy incredible mountain views from the year-round patio.

El Sabor 
At The base of Lionshead, El Sabor offers a latin spin on your typical American Mexican food. Our authentic recipes offer a tour of Latin and South America cuisine. The Margaritas are made from daily squeezed lime juice and agave nectar.

Bart & Yeti's 
In the heart of Lionshead Village, Bart & Yeti's offers cold beer and Pub style food. Burgers, Wings, Soups, Sandwiches and plenty of atmosphere!

Moe's Original BBQ
Moe’s Original BBQ is a Southern soul food revival. They serve great food in an atmosphere that is relaxed, spontaneous, yet civilized.



The 2019-20 season marks the beginning of this new tradition at Vail. We hope you’ll join in on the daily celebration!
