    Bentleys: The more casual scene

    by goingsolo Updated May 8, 2004

    A bar located next to the Wheeler Opera House. Its a more laid back crowd in here. The opera house itself is a famouns local landmark and the place is packed with locals. Its a good place to grab a drink and learn more about the less touristy side of Aspen.

    Dress Code: Somewhat casual. I wouldn't recommend shorts but no one would be thrown out in jeans.

    Address: 328 E. Hyman Avenue

    Directions: Next to Wheeler Opera House

    Phone: 970 920-2240

    From Zane's to the Bou: Go Big in Aspen

    by dannyt3 Written May 12, 2008

    There are some hot new spots coming to Aspen, and some old favorites. The old go to spots are Eric's and Club Chelsea - both located on Hyman mall, and The Caribou Club on Hopkins (membership required). There are a few dive bars still kicking - Bentley's and Zane's. New hot spots - Fly and Junk at Red Onion (coming soon).

    Dress Code: You can wear jeans anywhere in Aspen (not that you should..) Dress it up if you plan on going to the nicer spots. Dive bars, just have a little self respect and put on a clean shirt.

    Address: Hyman and Mill

    Lava Lounge: Nightlife in a cold time

    by Peruviangirlontour Written Jun 10, 2005

    This is the best place to dance and get drunk! I loved this discoteque, full of people, but if you arrive in high season you must do a queu (there is just 4 clubs in Aspen that`s why)

    Dress Code: Go dressed, as you want!

    Directions: Near Chocolate Factory on the way to Mc Donald's
