ABOUT VAIL

Since its auspicious founding in 1962, Vail has grown to become an extraordinary year-round world-class destination. The premier resort brand in North America and arguably the world, Vail attracts a diverse guest base who are cosmopolitan, adventurous, and active.

APRÈS & NIGHTLIFE

Après is the highlight of many ski and ride vacations! After you get off the slopes, grab a spot on the world famous Garfinkel's patio in Lionshead. Or join in the fun with the crowd at the Red Lion and sing along with your favorite bar tune. Maybe hit one of the local favorites, Los Amigos or Vendetta’s, in Vail Village. And after Après stick around town for some live music, dancing, or hit the bar scene. Options abound and the night is yours!

The nightlife in Vail has as many trails as the mountain. Whether your day was on the slopes or the massage table, you’ll find something right for you. Microbrews, patios, karaoke or clubs, get your second or third wind, because you never know what you'll find! Welcome to Vail! For more information, please visit www.vail.com.
