Aspen Nightlife The Ultimate Taxi

(category: Aspen-Nightlife, Word count: 452)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

This isn't your ordinary taxi ride! The Ultimate Taxi

is actually entertainment that is not to be missed.

This is a thirty to forty minute musical ride around

Aspen - but it's not like any other ride you will take

in your lifetime.

The taxi you will be riding in is a 1978 Checker cab.

It has been greatly modified and boasts four red

lasers, a laser projector, black light effects, light

washers, light orbs, mini-strobes, color changing fiber

optics, a sound system, stage lights, a mirror ball, a

fog machine, a keyboard, digital drums, a digital

camera, a DV cam, a notebook computer, a printer,

and much, much more.

Your driver will be Jon Barnes, and he has been

driving tourists around Aspen since 1984. He throws

in a pair of 3-D glasses, so you can view Aspen as

you never have before. Featured online, in radio

interviews, magazines, and newspapers, the Ultimate

Taxi has become very popular. Many famous people

have taken this cab ride as well, including Clint

Eastwood and Jerry Seinfeld.

Get ready for a wild ride! Jon plays the keyboard

and the horn while driving! With your 3-D glasses

and the other toys that are included in the ride,

combined with the psychedelic lighting effects, this

is one ride that you will never forget! In fact, Jon

makes sure of it, because there will be pictures to

help you remember the event.

Make sure you buy some souvenirs before you leave.

The Ultimate Taxi gift store is located right outside

the doors, in the trunk. You will also have a web page

memory of your ride in the Ultimate Taxi hosted on

Jon's server for all time. Take your toys and 3-D

glasses home with you as well.

The Ultimate Taxi is not a 'normal' taxi ride. You

don't call Jon Barnes to take you where you want to

go. The Ultimate Taxi is more of a musical show

and adventure. It has been called the world's

smallest recording studio.

Make sure that you get your Ultimate Taxi ride while

you are in Aspen, and join the ranks of Ivana, Kevin

Costner, George Hamilton, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dudley

Moore, the Beatles, Clint Eastwood, Jerry Seinfeld,

and even Regis Philbin! Due to the popularity of the

Ultimate Taxi, it is probably best to call in advance

for a reservation. The Ultimate Taxi is in operation

from 7pm to 10pm most nights.

There is always something going on in Aspen,

Colorado and the Aspen nightlife is very active.

You can find a wide variety of things to do - but

if you want a little culture, you should definitely

find out what events are planned at the Harris

Concert Hall.

At the Harris Concert Hall, you will find

everything from Piano Recitals to Rock-n-Roll

Concerts. Events are planned well in advance,

so you should be able to find out what concerts

and events are scheduled to coincide with your

Aspen vacation.

The Harris Concert Hall is located in the West

end of Aspen, in a quaint residential

neighborhood. Due to parking and traffic

problems, you should strongly consider

walking to the concert hall. It is a short ten

minute walk from the downtown area. Other

transportation options include biking or taking

the bus. When there are events at the concert,

it is very difficult to find parking.

The Aspen Music Festival and School were

founded in 1949 by Walter and Elizabeth

Paepcke from Chicago. Many music

professionals train here and all of the school

and festival performances take place in the

Harris Concert Hall, which seats over 2000

people.

You should definitely try to visit Aspen during

the Music Festival. This takes place over a nine

week period in the summer, and there are

usually more than 200 planned events. People

from all over the world come to the Aspen

Music Festival, so be sure that you make your

plans and reservations early!

Another exciting event that takes place at the

Harris Concert Hall is the Aspen Film Festival.

This festival takes place three times each year.

The Aspen Shortsfest is held in the Spring. The

Aspen Filmfest is held during the Fall, and the

Aspen Academy Screenings are held during the

Winter. Again, people come from all over the

world for these events, so make your plans

early.

The Harris Concert Hall is full of history, even

though the newest section of it wasn't built

until recently. This is a major part of Aspen's

history and culture, and you should try to attend

at least one event at the Harris Concert Hall

while you are in Aspen. Most events take place

in the evening; however there are also events

that take place during the day. You can check

with your lodge or hotel to find out what events

are planned at the Concert Hall each day. Also

inquire about the need to purchase advance

tickets for specific events.

Aspen Nightlife Syzygy

Syzygy, which is located on East Hyman Avenue in

Aspen, Colorado, has repeatedly won awards for

being one of the best restaurants in this ski town.

Featuring outstanding jazz music and food that is

out of this world, Syzygy is the place to be when it

comes to Aspen nightlife and fine dining. This is an

Aspen landmark that is not to be missed.

The chef at Syzygy combines European and Asian

dishes, and presents them in a modern American

way. These combinations are what set the cuisine

at Syzygy apart from the food you find at most

restaurants. Along with this outstanding fare, you

can select wine from a list of over 300 Italian,

American, and French wines. If you aren't sure

which wine will work with the fine food you have

ordered - simply ask your waiter. They always

seem to know exactly which wine will enhance the

flavor of the food the best.

One of the nice touches about the service at

Syzygy's is that the Chef likes to send gifts to the

table, such as goat cheese, potato crisps, and

osemary bread. Syzygy is famous for their

atmosphere as well. The glass enclosed waterfalls

inside the restaurant are talked about all over the

world - and they are really something to see! Every

part of the interior of this Aspen landmark works

well together to create a mood that makes the

food, the wine, the music, and the company

absolutely enjoyable.

You may be overwhelmed with all of the wonderful

menu choices, and all of the delicious smells

coming from nearby tables. You may not be able to

make a choice! Syzygy's has you covered. Simply

order the Tasting Menu, and sample everything.

Enjoy the music while you are eating - and after

your meal as well. Some of the finest jazz artists in

the world have performed at Syzygy's. Call ahead

to find out who will be performing - you will be glad

that you did.

Syzygy's is closed on Monday's and Tuesdays

during the off-season. During the season, they are

open from 6pm to 10pm each day, and you should

definitely call ahead for a reservation. Remember,

this is an integral part of experiencing Aspen

nightlife, so make sure you get by Syzygy's at

least once while you are in Aspen - the chances

are very good that your first visit will not be your

last! If possible, try to make it to the Sunday Jazz

Brunch.

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

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

screams elegance.

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

to drink.

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 Theatre In The Park

(category: Aspen-Nightlife, Word count: 212)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Founded in 1983 by Kent Reed, Theatre in the Park

has become an Aspen tradition that adds to the

delight of Aspen nightlife. Theatre in the Park once

actually was theatre that was performed in a tent in

the park. Now, however, Theatre in the Park has

changed its name to Theatre Aspen, and a new

permanent structure is in development. This will

allow Theatre in the Park to hold year-round

performances, instead of summer-only performances.

Contemporary and classical plays are all presented

by the theatre. If you are in Aspen around Christmas

time, make sure that you see the theatre's

presentation of "Its A Wonderful Life." As a summer-

only venue, sixty shows are performed each year.

Once the company has its permanent structure, we

can expect many more each year.

The Theatre Aspen also has many training programs

for adults and children. Currently, performances are

held between June and August. The Theatre in the

Park is located in the Rio Grande Park. Heat is

provided on chilly nights, and there is an area to enjoy

cocktails during intermissions, as well as before and

after performances.

Aspen Nightlife Getting Around

(category: Aspen-Nightlife, Word count: 484)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

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

dark!

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

recommended.

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

the valley.

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 Country Western Dancing

Believe it or not, there is only one place in

Aspen where you can scoot a boot across the

dance floor to the sounds of George Strait, and

other Country & Western favorites - Shooter's

Salon. Shooter's Salon is located on South

Galena Street, and they are open from 6:30pm

to 2am every day, and again, this club has the

distinction of being the only Country & Western

club in the whole town of Aspen, Colorado.

Here, cowboy hats, creased jeans, and boots

are the expected attire. During the week, the

music is provided by a DJ, and on weekends

live bands provide the tunes. If you don't know

how to do the Texas Two-Step, you can learn

how on any Thursday night which is when

Shooter's offers free Country dance lessons.

Good beer, good music, great dancing, friendly

games of pool or darts - Shooter's is a place

where all cowboy's and cowgirl's will feel right

at home. If you want to let your hair down,

without having to worry about breaking any of

the rules set by 'polite society' in the other fine

establishments located in Aspen, Shooter's is

the place to do it!

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

or up and coming comedians as well.

make sure that you make your plans and reservations

very early. The lodges and hotels will fill up fast for

entertainment is!
