Aspen Nightlife

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
