Recognized as one of the best après-ski lounges in the country, Chair 9 at The Nell is open during ski season (late November through early April). Named Chair 9 because Aspen Mountain has eight chairlifts and this serves as the 9th hole, so to speak. The bar opens just as the lifts are closing, featuring DJs daily from 3:30 pm - 7:30 pm, and football on big game days. Find your place at the bar, one of our high top tables or on our chaise-lounge. Or, upgrade to VIP seating a.k.a. "private chairs" offering bottle service and room for up to eight guests. A local's favorite, Chair 9 has also been recognized nationally by the New York Times, Curbed Ski and won awards from the Apres Ski Cocktail Classic and Apres Awards.
