chair 9

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 19th hole, so to speak. The bar opens just as the lifts are closing, featuring DJs or live music daily from 4:30 - 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.
