1. J-Bar at the Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colorado
J-Bar is the cozy lounge you’ve been waiting for. Its casual but classy decor attracts Aspen locals and ski tourists alike. There’s food, beverage, and an unbeatable atmosphere. Rumor has it Hunter S. Thompson headed for the J-Bar when he needed a drop…
2. Wobbly Barn in Killington, Vermont
After a long day on the slopes, a porterhouse from the Wobbly Barn’s kitchen will put some color back in your cheeks. The upstairs bar and music venue is a great way to pass the evening and meet people. It’s the no-frills, food-and-fun establishment every ski town needs. Oh, and there’s a free shuttle to and from the bar. No wonder they’ve been a Killington staple for 45 years.
3. The Attic at the Salish Lodge in Snoqualmie, Washington
The Attic is one winter hideaway you’ll want on your map. This bar overlooks the gorgeous Snoqualmie Falls, which partially freeze in the winter creating an incredible vortex of ice and mist. Come for the view and stay for the wood-fired pizza and drinks — including local craft brews.
4. The Million Dollar Cowboy in Jackson, Wyoming
Escape from the wild Wyoming winter at the Million Dollar Cowboy. There are a million reasons to go, but here are three: It’s got the best country Western music in the Tetons, famous knobbled pine construction, and Western curios on display for customers. Oh, and they serve the stuff that’ll warm you up.
5. KANU Lounge at Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, NY
Cozy up next to the fireplace in the relaxed Adirondack atmosphere of the KANU Lounge. With 20 different vodkas, a selection of 25 single malt scotches, a wide variety of local brews, and over 400 wines to chose from, you can find the perfect drink to complement the live music after a long day on the slopes.
