We were seriously underwhelmed by this place, it is supposed to be super fun and stylish and a real party atmosphere. Frankly they get it wrong with rules that are draconian and staff that that think they are more important than the guests! I would...More

Yes, people really get up and dance on benches and tables and spray champagne around the room! We had heard about all this, but didn't really believe it. It started as a great lunch - salmon was delicious - and suddenly turned into a party...More

Eating lunch at Cloud Nine is an experience not to be missed. The food is excellent and the service wonderful. Get there for the later seating and it becomes a party.

This place is hard to rate because it is basically a giant champagne spraying party but they make you order a bunch of food. The best part of the menu is the fondu dishes but unfortunately the table next to us was a little rambunctious...More

Great Little Place, it gets really crowded and noisy but that's the beauty of it, Fondue and Raclette delicious. Very expensive but it's definitely a must when visiting Aspen. We were lucky to get in without a Reservation. Excellent Service.

Yep, for sure. They have a small bar area & some outside seating (maybe a bit cold). Inside seating at the bar is a bit limited... but cosy

If you can get there, they do offer snowcat rides down after the apres ski party for the safety of those who may have had too much to drink.

We didn't make reservations since they were "booked" but we got seats on the very fun but crowded patio section. If you can, call and reserve seats inside which is very nice. And remember, that if you sit outside, the... More
