Aspen Nightlife The Caribou Club

(category: Aspen-Nightlife, Word count: 467)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

According to The New York Post, the Caribou

Club is the absolute best private club in

America. This is a member's only private club,

and the membership fee is quite high - but the

ambiance is top-notch!

The Caribou Club is located in Aspen,

Colorado on East Hopkins Avenue. The club

is open from 6:30pm until 2am every day, and

you can enjoy dinner and dancing, or lounge in

the Great Room before a roaring fireplace with

a fine cigar. The wine cellar houses over 5000

wines from around the world.

There is more to The Caribou Club than fine

dining and dancing, however. When you enter

the club, you are entering a world of elegance

that can only be experienced here. The walls

are covered with 19th century paintings. There

is a coat room, where your coat will be taken

from you, and you are made to feel like a very

welcome houseguest. You can then go to the

bar, the Great Room, or be seated for dinner

- the choice is yours.

The Caribou Club has only been open for about

ten years, but it has become an integral part of

Aspen nightlife for the rich and famous - and

even for those who are not famous, nor rich,

but who can afford to pay the membership

fees. When you enter the Great Room at The

Caribou Club, you will probably see faces that

you know - even if you don't know these

famous people on a personal level.

You don't even have to be in Aspen to enjoy the

cuisine offered by The Caribou Club. Your

event can be catered by the club, no matter

how large or small it is, or where it is located.

You can have your event catered anywhere

in the world! Private parties can also be held

at The Caribou Club.

Again, the cost is fairly high. Lifetime

membership for a couple is $10,000. Individual

membership for two people is $3000 for the

first year, and $1000 for each additional year,

paid annually. Family membership for up to five

people costs $4000 per year. A temporary

membership is available for one week. The cost

is $500 and covers one couple. However, during

Holidays and President's Weekend, the cost is

$1000.

As you can see, The Caribou Club is quite

exclusive - but depending on the type of

nightlife you enjoy, the cost of membership is

well worth it - even if you only visit once a year.

Aspen Nightlife The Wheeler Opera House

(category: Aspen-Nightlife, Word count: 465)

The Wheeler Opera House has been an

integral part of Aspen nightlife, history, and

culture since 1889 when Mr. J.B Wheeler and

the Conried Company presented The King's

Fool. While the building started out as an

Opera House, it was only used for town

meetings and such by 1893, when the silver

mines had played out.

The Wheeler Opera House remained open until

1912 when it was gutted by not one, but two

fires in one week! The Opera House did not

open again until June of 1946 when it was

leased by the Aspen Company. The total

restoration went on until 1960. Between the

years of 1912 and 1946 the Wheeler Opera

House remained empty, and it was used as

a playground by the local children.

During the 1960's and 1970's, The Wheeler

Opera House was mainly used as a movie

theater. However, in 1979, the city decided to

restore the Opera House to its original

grandeur, and this restoration was completed

in 1984. The cost was 4.5 million dollars.

Today, the Wheeler Opera House is on the

National Registrar of Historical Places.

Many events, such as lectures, concerts, plays,

films, and musicals are held at The Wheeler

Opera House today. You can see Broadway

shows, jazz concerts, country and rock

concerts, and even children's theater here.

Any type of cultural event you can imagine

is held here - and shows are scheduled

throughout the year. Locals consider the

Wheeler Opera House the 'crown jewel of Aspen.

' Nationwide, it is considered a world class theater

- and with the detailed woodwork it is certainly a

sight to behold!

The Opera House is still in its original location

on Hyman Avenue, in the heart of downtown

Aspen. You can call to find out what events are

planned, and to purchase tickets. Remember

that this is a popular place, and shows do sell

out quickly - so purchase your tickets as early

as possible. You should also be aware that

children under the age of three years old are

not permitted for live performances, unless the

performance is for children specifically.

Cameras and recording devices are not

permitted for performances.

The Wheeler Opera House can also be rented

for a variety of special occasions and events,

such as parties, receptions, weddings,

conferences, and seminars. Events such as

these are usually held on the second floor,

where guests will enjoy a breathtaking view of

Aspen Mountain, as well as the city.

Aspen Nightlife

(category: Aspen-Nightlife, Word count: 464)

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

alternate transportation.

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 is famous for more than skiing. There are

currently more than thirty art galleries in and around

the Aspen area, where art created by famous artists

around the world resides. Visiting the art galleries in

Aspen is a must, and no Aspen vacation will be

complete without this taste of culture.

Most of the art galleries are within walking distance

of each other, arranged in a three by four block area.

This area is located between Spring Street and

Monarch Street, and Hopkins Avenue and Durant

Street.

You will find everything from vintage poster art at the

Omnibus Gallery to Impressionism art at the Galerie

Du Bois. Visit the Highline Gallery for glass art and

the Pam Driscol Gallery for bronze sculpture art.

Contemporary collections can be found at the

Baldwin Gallery.

While some galleries are open after hours, many

close around 5pm. It is important to find out the

operating hours of the galleries that you want to visit

ahead of time. Many shows and events are planned

at the galleries for the evening hours as well.

Aspen Nightlife And The Altitude

(category: Aspen-Nightlife, Word count: 460)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

There is more to do in Aspen than ski! The

Aspen nightlife is like nothing you will

experience elsewhere. The warmth and

camaraderie of all of the skiers, from all of the

different lodges is quite special, and remarkable.

You will have a good time in Aspen, no matter

what you choose to do, but there is one thing

that you should be very aware of before you

start your party - the altitude.

Aspen sits about 8000 feet above sea level.

Unless you live in a high altitude area, you will

need to adjust to this altitude. You may find

yourself feeling dizzy or light headed, and you

may even find it a bit difficult to breath. Altitude

Sickness is a serious problem, and if your

symptoms become extreme, you should seek

medical attention.

If you will be drinking, you need to know that the

altitude will have a large impact on the way your

body handles the alcohol. Many people who are

not used to such a high altitude find that they

become drunker on much less alcohol, in a very

short period of time. It is best that you avoid

drinking alcohol at all until you have adjusted

to the altitude.

It is also important to recognize the signs of

both Altitude sickness and Acute Mountain

Sickness (AMS). Altitude sickness can be

recognized by hyperventilation, shortness of

breath during exertion, increased urination,

changed breathing patterns at night, strange

dreams, and frequently waking from sleep

during the night. Acute Mountain Sickness, on

the other hand, is recognized by loss of appetite,

nausea, vomiting, fatigue or weakness,

dizziness, light-headedness, difficulty sleeping,

confusion, and a staggering gait.

As you can see, the symptoms of both Altitude

Sickness and Acute Mountain Sickness

somewhat resemble the symptoms of drinking

too much alcohol. The only way to rule out being

drunk is to not drink for at least 48 hours after

your arrival in the higher altitude. You should

also seek medical attention if your symptoms

last more than 48 hours, or if you show signs

of Acute Mountain Sickness. AMS can be

deadly if it is not treated.

Health care professionals suggest that you

avoid drinking alcohol because the effects are

magnified at a high altitude. Avoid strenuous

activity for the first couple of days after arriving

at the higher altitude. Drink extra fluid and visit

a doctor if you have symptoms of AMS

immediately for treatment.

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

auto belays.

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 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.

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.
