Best Après Spots in Aspen
Best Après Spots in Aspen:
“Après” is not just an after skiing activity, though it is the perfect way to end a day shredding it up on the slopes.”Après” is de rigueur after a tiring hike or a float down the river. It’s great to find a welcoming spot to relax and laugh with friends while indulging in drinks and snacks.
Ajax Tavern – The Ajax Tavern is the true place to people watch, relax, and of course chow down on their most delicious truffle French fries. With music constantly playing on their outside patio, overlooking the Little Nell slope on Aspen Mountain, there is no reason to not fit this into your day. No matter what time of year , there always seems to be a sprawling party going on outside the restaurant, so grab a pair of shades, sip down a drink, enjoy the perfect place to snap a group picture, and relish your care-free afternoon.
Casa Tua – Casa Tua’s Aspen location at 403 S Galena St is a short stroll from the gondola and one of my favorite restaurant in Aspen. The cozy atmosphere, attentive service, and unbelievably delicious food is a perfect treat after a long day of hiking. In the winter the restaurant is only open for dinner, but in the summer time, fortunately the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. So whenever someone asks me where I want to go after a long hike, my first recommendation is Casa Tua. They offer public dining in the restaurant downstairs, and have a private club upstairs. The most special thing about Casa Tua is the “home- like” atmosphere that permeates each space, the name literally means “your house”. You truly feel like you are being served in your own home, which is a really unique and uncommon experience in restaurants and private clubs. Especially after an active day you want to be in a place that reminds you of the level of comfort you would receive in your own home. When sitting outside on the patio, you overlook the center of Aspen, and can enjoy the people watching along with endless Bellini’s – a Casa Tua favorite.
