After a day on the slopes or exploring the Rocky Mountain terrain on a snowshoe excursion, a night of relaxation is not only due, but deserved. The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch – nestled in an exclusive enclave of Beaver Creek Mountain and known as one of Colorado’s top ski-in, ski-out luxury resorts – is putting a haute spin on the traditional ‘après-ski’ experience with extended evening hours as part of the new “Après After Dark” offering at Bachelors Lounge.
Ideal for unwinding after a long day of winter adventures, the sultry, hidden indoor/outdoor lounge will now be open daily until April 15, 2018. This adult-only space is a sophisticated venue where resort guests and locals can delight in tasteful bites inspired by the menus from Buffalos and the resort’s signature restaurant, WYLD. A late-night menu is perfectly paired with a carefully curated selection of locally sourced drafts, spirits and wines as well as elevated craft mixology. Complete with modern gas fireplaces and sleek furniture, those 21 and older can sip on handcrafted concoctions and seasonal libations such as Night Out with a Bachelor, a warm beverage using the resort’s proprietary liquor, Bachelors Bourbon. Created by Daniel Rodriguez, arriving from Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve, the new beverage menu is an inspiring amalgamation of old standards and new favorites.
Individuals will revel in an intimate indoor atmosphere such as during a romantic date night sans kids or cozied up to a fireplace in the heated outdoor space where, as Vail Valley’s only cigar lounge, aficionados can enjoy a selection of premium cigars –– including the world’s most expensive cigar. Whether a connoisseur or a novice, guests will be greeted and guided by the knowledgeable Alexandra Kaplan, who has been at the Lounge since its conception and is an expert in all things cigars.
Featuring a one-of-a-kind night out in the mountains, where local DJs versed in a diverse array of music genres will play on select dates, friends and couples may rendezvous with the finest of company at Bachelors Lounge and enjoy the ultimate way to Après After Dark.
Bachelors Lounge will host DJs playing from smooth jazz to up-beat dance tunes throughout the season. December 26, 2017 – December 31, 2017; February 16-18, 2018 and March 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31, 2018.
