Chair 9 Is the First Stop for Après-Ski

Chair 9

When you’ve finished skiing all eight chairs on Aspen Mountain, The Little Nell is hoping you’ll hit Chair 9. That’s the name of its newly renovated après-ski bar, which opens Nov. 29 in place of the former Terrace Bar.

“The name refers to the number of chair lifts on Aspen Mountain, which currently is eight,” said Little Nell General Manager Simon Chen. “The ninth chair is the final resting place for the Aspen skier who is ready to belly up to the bar and enjoy that hard-earned après ski celebration.”

The bar is emphasizing casual après-ski and adding daily live music with programming by Belly Up. In addition, its menu will feature many items under $15, plus oysters, shrimp, crab legs and lobster, along with wines, sparkling wines and champagne. Or go straight for the $4 “shot of the day” which is available until it’s gone.

The bar will be open daily from 2-8 p.m. and will feature live music or DJs from 4-7 p.m. Here’s the list of upcoming music:

11/29 – Matthew Moon

11/30 – Hannibal Brown

12/1 – DJ Dylan

12/2 – DJ Dylan
