Review: Nightlife in Vail, Colorado

Vail, CO 81650‎

All winter long, the quiet town of Vail, Colorado comes alive with skiers from around the world. But skiing is not the only thing this mountain town is good at: Partying here is second nature.

Start off your night off with a quick happy hour bite. Many local bars and restaurants host après ski parties for skiers coming directly off the slopes. Later, muscle your way through the crowds at one of the local hot spots (Garfinkel’s and the Red Lion are a few of our favorites).

For late night entertainment, stop by one of Vail’s many free outdoor (yes, outdoor—wear layers) concerts. For a warmer option, dance the night away at a club like local favorite, Whiskey Jack’s.

Wherever you end up, keep in mind, though, that the local mantra is “work hard, party hard”: If you want to do Vail like a local, you should spend the night in style but still hit the slopes bright and early.

Take the Vail Bus into Vail Village or Lionshead.
