Ajax Tavern

( Restaurants & Nightlife > American )

Say “apres-ski” and most people picture something strikingly similar to Ajax Tavern – glamorous yet easy. Its sun-drenched, mountainside patio can be seen from halfway up the mountain – a simple target for lunch or cocktails. Arrive, and let the people-watching begin, there’s no better seat in town. Located right next to the Silver Queen Gondola, Ajax Tavern is the hub for casual fine dining in an unbeatable atmosphere. The Tavern comes to life at lunch, and the party rolls on well into the night. If you go no further on the menu, try the truffle fries and Ajax double cheeseburger – they earned their reputation.

Element 47

( Restaurants & Nightlife > American )

It’s been called Aspen’s “finest spot to wine, dine and unwind.” The name element47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine —for breakfast, lunch, aprés and dinner, 7 days a week. Our culinary and wine team are one very good reason we have enjoyed the rare 5 Star, 5 Diamond ranking for so long. Whether you ski in for lunch, drop in at the bar for a more casual rendezvous, or join us for the most special of occasions, you’ll be greeted with warmth, not formality. You’ll find the ambience – ceiling-height glass cases with some of our rarest wines, art by Michelle Grabner, Angel Otero, Scott Reeder, Philip Vanderhyden, Cameron Martin, José Lerma – as fine as the dining.
