Aspen’s après-ski scene rocks. The diverse “wild-life”—everything from billiard rooms and jazz clubs to wine bars and throwback saloons—entertains all sorts. If you over-indulge the free in-town bus runs until 2am. Bartenders can also arrange a free cab ride, courtesy of Aspen's enlightened Tipsy Taxi program.

Aspen Nightlife

Have fun at 39 Degrees Lounge, located at the Sky Hotel. In the summer, take a dip in the heated pool or hot tub and soak in the amazing views of the mountains surrounding you.

Caribou Club

Granted, tabs average $1,000 (and there’s that pesky $500 membership fee), but mingling with Billy Crystal in the Great Room (a Western fantasia of antler-and-crystal chandeliers and billowing bronze swag) is priceless.
