Aspen Nightlife Music In The Mountains
There is always something of interest going on
in Aspen, and September is no different. During
the month of September, every year, JAS
comes to Snowmass. JAS, or Jazz Aspen
Snowmass, began in 1991 to honor the art of
Jazz in the Roaring Fork Valley. It has now
become a music attraction that lasts all
summer long, with the biggest celebration
coinciding with Labor Day weekend.
While this is a Jazz celebration, for all intents
and purposes, all types of music are
celebrated, including reggae and rock-n-roll.
Famous musicians and singers from around
the world attend the four day Music in the
All events take place in the breathtaking
Snowmass Town Park, located on Brush
Creek Road in Snowmass. Snowmass
Village is one of the most beautiful places in
the United States, and this festival is extremely
popular. It is vital that you purchase your tickets
well in advance, and arrange lodging well in
advance also. Snowmass advises that if you
do not have a ticket, to not show up for the
festival - it will be sold out.
Aspen Nightlife Club Chelsea
The Club Chelsea is a fashionable club that is
a traditional part of the Aspen nightlife social
scene. Featuring a piano bar, a dining area, a
dance floor, and a private smoking room, this
is high-toned entertainment at its very best.

cognacs, martinis, and ports, and in the
smoking room, you will find Havana and A.
Fuente cigars. The club is open from 8pm to
2am daily, and is located on East Hyman
Avenue. A light menu is offered, featuring
gourmet dishes such as pastas, tenderloins,
and tamales. Everything about Club Chelsea
The chances are good that you will not run into
the college crowd here. The majority of the
patrons seem to be older - starting with the 30
and 40 year old crowds, with some seniors
thrown in for good measure. This is elegant
'grown up' entertainment, where you won't find
a lot of noise or people who have had too much
So, if you are past the college drinking contests
and wet T-shirt competition age, you will find
Club Chelsea a delightful and elegant place
where you can while away the evening with
great food, fabulous drinks, wonderful piano
music, and outstanding cigars.
Aspen Nightlife Us Comedy Arts Festival
If you can visit Aspen in March, make sure that you
catch the US Comedy Arts Festival that is held in
various venues throughout Aspen. This is one of the
major events for comedians all over the country -
and it is some of the best entertainment you will
The US Comedy Arts Festival features every type of
comedy you can imagine, including Stand-up
comedy, film shorts, alternative comedy, and sketch
comedy. Tribute is given to some of the greatest
comedians from the past, such as Rodney
Dangerfield, Monty Python, and George Carlin. You
will also have the opportunity to enjoy many of
today's famous comedians, and hear some unknown
or up and coming comedians as well.
Make sure that you don't miss this festival - and
make sure that you make your plans and reservations
very early. The lodges and hotels will fill up fast for
this festival, and according to locals, this is the
hardest time of the year to find lodging in Aspen -
which is a good indication of how good the
Finding things to do in Aspen, Colorado during the
day isn't difficult - get out on the slopes and ski or
enjoy one of the other winter sports that you love.
At night, however, Aspen really comes to life with
Aspen nightlife! No matter how old or young you are,
there is something to do in Aspen twenty-four hours
a day, seven days a week.
Music and dancing are the biggest Aspen nightlife
attractions, but there is more to do than just that -
so if you aren't quite old enough to get into the
various bars and clubs in the area, don't think that
you will be bored at night - you won't be! Start by
finding out what activities are planned for the
evening at your lodge or hotel. Most lodges and
hotels have events planned throughout the season
- and this is a good place to start finding things to
do after the slopes have closed for the day.
Shopping in Aspen is another highlight. There are
many galleries and specialty shops that you won't
find in your own hometown. Take advantage of this.
Most shops are open after the slopes have closed
for the day, and many stay open late because they
understand that you want to spend your daylight
hours out on the slopes.
If you aren't old enough for the club scene, take
advantage of the teen nights that are offered by many
of the resorts. These are safe fun nights for teens,
which parents will approve of. Teens also enjoy the
offerings at many of the spas. Spas aren't just for
adults. Enjoy the skin treatments, massages,
saunas, and hot tubs. Some resorts also have game
rooms for the teens and younger kids.
If you are old enough for the bars and clubs - finding
something to do won't be hard at all. Again, find out
what is happening in the evening at your lodge or
hotel first. If you aren't interested, hit the streets.
Almost everything is within walking distance in Aspen,
and anything that is out of walking distance is
accessible by bus or taxi. If you will be drinking,
do not drive your car to the bar or club - find
The Aspen Recreation center has many planned
events throughout the season that are appropriate for
adults and kids. However, if you are planning to bring
the kids, but you want to enjoy some adult Aspen
nightlife as well, child care may be available through
your lodge or hotel.
Aspen Nightlife Aspen Recreation Center
While the Aspen Recreation Center closes just
before 9pm, there is quite a bit of enjoyment to be
had here after a day on the slopes. If you get there
right after leaving the slopes, and eat a late dinner
- after the center closes - you will have plenty of
time to enjoy what the ARC has to offer.
The climbing walls at the center are the biggest
attraction. The ARC features approximately 3100 feet
of climbing walls for your enjoyment. There is also a
3-D climbing tower with more than 25 routes and four
Another nice feature at the Aspen Recreation Center
is the pool area. The James E. Moore Pool area
features two pools. One pool is 25 yards in length
and features six lanes, while the other pool is for
recreation and has a two story slide, a lazy river, and
spray features. You will also find a dry sauna, a steam
room, and hot tubs in the pool area.
The Lewis Ice Arena is also located at the Aspen
Recreation Center. Completed in the Spring of 2003,
the arena features an NHL regulation size skating
surface, grandstand seating for 450, a skate shop,
locker rooms, and shower rooms. Public skating,
skating lessons, figure skating, youth and adult
hockey, and skating shows are available. You can
also host private parties at the arena. High altitude
training is also offered here.
You will also find cardio and weight rooms at the
center, and many fitness classes are also offered.
The Aspen Recreation Center hosts many off-site
activities in the Aspen area as well, such as golf,
tennis, climbing, aquatics, sailing, skateboarding,
ceramics classes, baseball, softball, soccer,
hockey, and various camps.
Babysitting services are available at the center as
well. This place is a great way to wrap up a day of
activity and wind down before your evening meal.
Again, the Aspen Recreation Center closes just
before 9pm, so make sure you head there right after
leaving the slopes for the day.
Admission for guests is $13 for youths and $15 for
adults. Admission includes access to the climbing
towers, swimming pool area, ice skating rink, weight
room, cardio room, adult fitness classes, water
aerobics, climbing wall and playhouse, and tennis
courts. The Aspen Recreation Center is a great place
for every member of the family. Call ahead to find out
about any planned events that are going on for even
more entertainment options.
Aspen Nightlife How To Find The Entertainment
No matter what time of year it is when you visit
Aspen, there is always something going on -
even in the off season. The town is small, but
there are usually several types of entertainment
offered each evening in different parts of the
small town. Generally, you won't have to search
too hard to find some entertainment - but it is
better to know exactly what is going on all over
town, so you can choose the Aspen nightlife
that best suits your interests.
First, call the Chamber of Commerce in Aspen
a few months before your trip if possible. Ask
them what events are planned for the time
period that you will be there. Events are usually
scheduled well in advance, and finding out
about these events well in advance will not only
help you to better make your plans, but it will
also allow you to purchase needed tickets in
advance. Nothing will be more disappointing
than arriving in Aspen and finding out that your
favorite band is in town for a sold out show!
Events can come up at the last minute as well.
Upon your arrival to your lodge or hotel, ask the
concierge about events that will be taking place
during your stay. If you have already contacted
the Chamber of Commerce, you will know most
of what is going on around town - but there may
be a few surprises in store for you.
Don't forget to check with the Chamber of
Commerce offices in nearby towns and villages!
Snowmass is a village that almost seems to
be a part of Aspen - but it isn't. Contact the
Snowmass town hall to find out what events
are scheduled in the village during your visit.
Have a plan before you arrive in Aspen. Use
Internet resources, as well as the information
that you learn from the various Chambers of
Commerce and your lodge to plan your daytime
and night time activities while you will be in
Aspen. Again, there is always something to do
in Aspen, and if you don't plan ahead, you will
waste a lot of time trying to decide what you
want to do.
While you want to go in with a plan, leave a
day or two open - with no plans. Use these
days for shopping expeditions or simply take a
quiet walk through the quiet Victorian
neighborhoods. Go to a restaurant that isn't in
your plans, or spend some time in the Great
Room at your lodge. There is always
something to do...but sometimes, it is nice to
have nothing to do as well!
Aspen Nightlife Taste Festival
Winter time isn't the only time to visit Aspen.
There is a great deal going on each summer,
and one of the highlights each June is the
Taste Festival. This is also called the Food &
Wine Magazine Classic, and people from all
over the world arrive in droves for this three
Cookbook authors, wine experts, restaurateurs,
and famous chefs can all be found here.
Wolfgang Puck, Jacques Pepin, and Andrea
Immer have all attended the Taste Fest in
Aspen - because if food is your life, this is the
place to be! Each year, there are over eighty
cooking and food demonstrations, and visitors
can get a taste of it all.
There are many seminars and wine tasting
sessions held throughout Aspen during these
three days as well. If you want to attend this
incredible mouth watering event, make your
reservations months in advance - or you will
miss out! If you don't make your reservations
early, try to find a hotel with space available in
a nearby town, and drive back and forth to the
event - check the local camp grounds as well.
Just make sure you don't miss this event!
Aspen Nightlife Getting Around
After a day on the slopes, you may be
wondering what there is to do for the rest of the
evening. Well, don't use up all of your energy,
and leave the slopes early enough to get in a
short nap - you will need all of the energy you
can muster for the Aspen nightlife. No matter
how much skiing you get in or how many of
the runs you have mastered, you have not truly
experienced Aspen until you venture out after
Aspen has three basic areas: downtown, the
West end, and the East end. The town is
remarkably small, considering how many
people venture here each season - but
surprisingly, everyone and everything just fits.
The town is actually small enough to leave
your car parked at your lodge or hotel and walk
anywhere that you want to go. In fact, this is
Not everyone pays heed to this advice, which
can make driving around and parking very
difficult. You can also take a free shuttle from
one mountain to another, take the Roaring Fork
Transit Authority Bus, or go to the Rubey Park
Transportation Center to get a ride anywhere in
Don't worry about getting lost. The town is well
laid out. Starting on the West end, you will find
a quiet Victorian neighborhood. While this is a
residential district, where locals live, you will
also find many hotels and condos on the West
end, particularly on Main Street. You will also
find the Aspen Meadows Conference Center
and Hotel. This is a 40-acre area where you
will also find the Aspen Institute, the Music Tent,
the Harris Concert Hall, the Paepcke Auditorium,
the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies,
the Hallam Lake Nature Preserve, and the
Aspen Center for Physics.
In the East end of Aspen you will find another
residential area, as well as the Roaring Fork
River and the Aspen Club and Spa. The East
end features more forests than the West end,
which has been developed a great deal more.
Between the West End and the East End, you
will find downtown Aspen. Downtown is where
most of the action is. Featuring old Victorian
buildings, downtown Aspen boasts pubs,
restaurants, shops, and everything else you
could ever possibly need - all housed in
beautiful historical landmark buildings.
Down the valley a ways, you will find Snowmass
Village. To the west, you will also find Roaring
Fork Valley. These two villages are
compliments of Aspen, and you should take
the time to visit them as well.
Aspen Nightlife The Club Scene
After a day on the slopes in Aspen, Colorado, you
are probably ready to do some partying. The Aspen
club scene starts hopping shortly before the slopes
close. Many of the clubs have planned events - and
some are just free-for-alls with music and dancing all
night long. No matter what kind of music you are into,
you will find it in Aspen.
Most of the lodges and hotels in Aspen have bars or
clubs. Some have multiple bars, clubs, or lounges -
so start your search for Aspen nighttime
entertainment at your lodge or hotel. You can
usually find a friendly game of pool in almost any bar
before the music and dancing begin.
The easiest way to find the type of music and dancing
that is most enjoyable to you is to pick up a copy of
Aspen Magazine's Traveler's Guide. This guide will
provide you with a list of Aspen hotspots, and let you
know what you can expect at each club or bar. If you
will be drinking, make sure that you don't drive your
car. Walk or take advantage of the public transportation
or taxi services in the Aspen area.
