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!

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.

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
