Apres ski options include everything in the town of Aspen.

Dining And Where To Eat:

There are two on-mountain dining options: Cloud Nine at the top of the Cloud Nine chairlift and Merry-Go-Round at the top of Exhibition lift. On a sunny warm day, the patio at Cloud Nine often is the start of pre-Apres ski activities with live music and festivities.

Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro

Cloud Nine: Why are there dancing butts in the window? Country and Western line dancing, to a live band of course. Beer, Wine and Champagne are served on the patio. The party starts early here.

Merry-Go-Round: On mountain lunch

The base of the mountain has a few meal options including the Ale House, Willow Creek Bistro and Taqueria (Italian). There are many more dining options in the town of Aspen (too numerous to list).

Aspen CO:

In-town dining options reside along Main street, Hopkins and Hyman Avenue, the main roads in town. Aspen cuisine does not disappoint, although it is more expensive than most ski towns (which typically overcharge).
Restaurant: Acquolina

Acquolina: one of the many fine dining options in Aspen

Aspen Highlands Bars and Night Life:

Nightlife ends early (usually before dark) on the mountain and is centered on apres ski activities. The town of Aspen will open up your options.

In Aspen try Aspen Brewing Company, Belly Up (if there is a band you want to see) or The Red Onion.

Note that Zax is a fictional Aspen nightclub from the erotic romance book "Fifty Shades of Freed" and movie "Fifty Shades of Grey". It's not real so don't expect it to be listed!
