Snake River Saloon: The Snake in the Dark!
This is where it all happens here in Keystone - drinking, music, dancing, dining and more drinking! There are plenty of other bars in the resort but this is my personal favourite and has a good mixed clientele and when it gets lively it gets lively. Good service (provided you tip well) and a proper bar ambience.
You can dine both formally in the restaurant or informally at the bar and the burgers are as good as burgers get!
Live music at the weekends - details on website.
Dress Code: No particular dress code but Western attire blends in perfectly.

The Inn: A Barman Who Remembers Your Drinks
Not quite sure whether this qualifies as casual dining or nightlife, but this I was impressed with. Dropped in for a couple of drinks on the Thursday, had a bar meal - wings and superb crab cakes, went back on the following Monday (?) and the barman remembered exactly what we had had to to drink last Thursday, exactly, to the T!! That is amazing, even to the particular wine my friend was drinking.
Well done Justin!!
Dress Code: This is reasonably casual, so don't let the upmarket frontage put you off - I personally wore swimming trunks, lace up sandals with long woolen socks and a quilted body warmer and I didn't feel at all out of place.

Snake River Saloon: Make mine an Absolute with a twist please
Nightlife in Keystone varies season to season, but you can pretty much count on a lively scene year around at the Snake River Saloon. A combination restaurant and bar, I've heard it said that the Snake River has the best steaks in the valley. I haven't tried all of the steaks in the valley, and I'm really a bigger seafood eater, but I might have to say it could very well be true. I've tried three of the offerings; a humungous T-bone with button mushrooms and a bordeaux sauce, a wonderful New York, stuffed with crab meat, and an excellent filet mignon wrapped in bacon. Each provided me with a substantial lunch the next day.
If you really want casual, order from the bar menu in the saloon. The sauteed mushrooms and artichoke hearts topped with melted cheese are enough of a meal to make me happy. Hot wings, hamburgers and half price margaritas at happy hour make me absolutely giddy.
There is live music and dancing most nights, friendly folks and pool tables. All make for great apres ski or apres biking in a very casual setting.
Dress Code: Keystone is nearly always casual. The Snake River Saloon is certainly the epitome of casual. Diners sometimes come in straight from the slopes. Others are more casual elegant.
Eric's Downstairs: Head out to Breckenridge
We are huge Marquette fans and needed to find a place with a satellite dish so we could watch the sweet 16 NCAA game vs Pittsburgh. There wasn't anything in Keystone. This place in Breckenridge had the sports bar amenities we were looking for. Although we didn't eat, there were plenty of people waiting to do just that when we arrived.
