Slot Bartender Missy
Skiing-Blog.com brings us this review on one of the radest watering holes in Squaw, The Slot.
This has been a phenomenal ski season. So good in fact that that when I encountered less than stellar conditions last Saturday I decided to call it quits early and crawl into Squaw Valley’s newest bar, the Slot. The aptly named Slot is located past the little fenced in patio to the looker’s right of Bistro 22. This hole in the wall location was once a tiny breakfast deli but has remained empty for most of its life in the Village at Squaw Valley. No one seemed to know what type of business would work in such a small space. Someone finally got it right. The Slot has all the ingredients of a successful dive bar including intimate atmosphere, a local following and solid drink specials.
The Slot is so small that the bar takes up almost the entire joint. A huge flat panel TV located behind the bar displays the latest ski and snowboard movies. Retired skis hang on walls to the left and right of the bar, nodding to classic ski bum culture. A jukebox tucked in the corner buttons up the scene with quality selections from the past including Jane’s Addiction, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, and Eric B and Rakim.
