Great place to hang out after last ski run of the day. Close to lifts and has a cool vibe with folks reliving their day on the mountain.

Hi Kathy, I see that you attempted to inquire if you could visit as a group. I wrote my review but you need to contact them direct to find out how many people they accommodate! Brick is beautiful!
