The whir of the chairlift, the whoosh of the downhill and the tequila reward at the end of the runs has us praying for a snow day. Stat. Want to join us on the slopes, work up an appetite and slide on down to one of (or all) 10 of the best après-ski bars in Colorado? Sweet. We mapped it out for you.

Finn’s Manor – Larimer Street, Denver
28 tequilas. 16 rotating taps. And a pod of food trucks. Zagat’s agrees that Finn’s Manor is one of the hottest places to cool down (warm-up) après-ski. Unclick your boots and head over. Make sure to check out their daily punches. They’ll warm you up after a cold day in the powder. Guaranteed.
Uno Mas Taqueria – South Pearl Street and East 6th Avenue, Denver
Come hungry. And we know you will after spending all day on the half-pipe. Authentic Mexican food elevated created farm-to-table and garden-to-plate ingredients, some of which are grown on their own farm, makes Una Mas the perfect spot to unwind with a tequila cocktail and fill up.
El Chingon Bistro – Tennyson Street, Denver
Heat things up with an Organic Picante served in a traditional clay cup at El Chingon Bistro. Everything is special here – from the food to the drinks, to the vibe, to the people behind it all. Grandmother and grandson executive chef team put their heart into their recipes, and it shows. Hurry down off the mountain and pull up a chair.
Agave Taco Bar –East Mississippi Street, Denver
Homemade tortillas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Count us in! Especially when seeking something to warm up our hands after hitting the slopes. Agave Taco Bar is just the spot. If you think the tortillas will warm you up, you should try the freshly made margaritas.

Dos Santos – East 17th Avenue, Denver
Bright and welcoming. That’s how we’d describe the decor. Rustic wood with hot pops of color. Crazy good. That’s how we’d describe the food and drinks at Dos Santos. Like “OMFG”-good. Interestingly enough, that’s one our favorite fish tacos on the menu – raw tuna with lime cilantro sauce. Yum. We don’t want to rush you down off the mountain, but happy hour starts at 3.
Best Après-Ski Bars in Colorado – Aspen area
Su Casa Restaurant TaQueria and Tequila Bar – East Hyman, Aspen
Is there anything more magical than the glistening snow and bustling runs in Aspen? We can only think of one thing. Well, maybe 2 – tacos and tequila. Dust the snow off and head over to Su Casa for post-ski food and libations.
St. Regis Aspen Resort – East Dean Street, Aspen
The St. Regis is the only hotel on our list for good reason. It’s unparalleled. Stay for few nights or play for an afternoon. Either way, take off your knit cap and pull up a chair at one of their delicious dining spots. We promise you won’t regret it.
Hops Culture – East Hyman, Aspen
After a long day on the slopes, nothing seems more satisfying than a heaping of loaded fries and a cold beverage. Hops Culture is the ideal spot to grab a hearty snack or an indulgent dinner after you’ve burned a few thousand calories on the double black diamond.
Bring the Best Après-Ski Bars in Colorado to you
Peak Beverage – Beverage Catering Service
Sometimes it’s easier to have the bar come to you especially after an exhilarating snow day. Peak Beverage, a full-service drink catering company, brings the party to you. From small and intimate gatherings to huge corporate events, Peak will probably even set up slope-side.
Mid County Liquors – Highway 119, Black Hawk
Headed up the mountain for a long weekend of snow and fun? Stop at Mid County Liquors and take a bottle (or a case) of Azuñia with you. Mid County has everything you need to make getting snowed-in worth it.
More “Post-Pool” than “Après-Ski”?
Not everyone fancies themselves a ski bunny. Some are more prone to lounging poolside. Others are happiest in the urban jungle. No matter what setting suits you, we’ve got the best spots to enjoy Azuñia covered. Visit our tequila blog for more hot spots for cold day refreshment.

You can find Azuñia tequilas at fine restaurants, bars, and retailers across the country.WHERE TO BUY
