Alpine Enchantment in Aspen

Aspen is one of my many favorite places to visit in the summer and fall.

I don’t ski, so this post will be about where to stay, drink, eat and shop.

The first stop is the The Little Nell.  It’s an outstanding, luxurious hotel in the heart of Aspen.  The rooms are beautifully designed and spacious.  Some rooms have a balcony with sliding doors to the slopes.  The best part of my stay was the swoon-worthy bath products.

Get your shopping fall/winter fix at Gorsuch this store has the coolest clothing, ever.  It’s expensive, so choose wisely.

Brunch is hip and festive at Justice Snows. The menu is filled with excellent breakfast and brunch items.  I wanted to order everything on the menu once I saw the dishes being served.

Aspen nightlife is incredibly chic at Caribou Club.  They play various contemporary music in an alpine setting.

Caution alert:  Aspen is located 9,000 ft above sea level.  The elevation will make you boozy faster, so drink slowly and limit your amount of drinks.

Another one of my favorite clubs to spice up the night is Escobar. This picture does not do it justice, but you will not be disappointed with the music and the scene.

It’s LIT at Bootsy Bellows; actor David Arquette owns the club. Depending on the night, they offer a variety of shows including costumed burlesque dancers, DJ’s, live musical acts, puppets, and impromptu concerts.

For a post night out recovery breakfast, or brunch go to Aspen Kitchen.  The breakfast options are unbeatable and tasty.

Dinner options are endless, but there are two spots you cannot miss.  Steakhouse 316 and Matsuhisa.

Steakhouse 316 is dimly romantically lit.  They offer the most delicious steaks and crab cakes cooked to perfection.

Matsuhisa never disappoints in any of its location.  The sushi is fresh with extraordinary, unique creations.  Try the sea bass lettuce wedges.
