element 47

It’s been called Aspen’s “finest spot to wine, dine and unwind.” The name element 47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine —for breakfast, lunch, après and dinner, 7 days a week. Our team of culinary and wine professionals is one very good reason our hotel has enjoyed the rare 5-Star, 5-Diamond ranking for so long. In 2015, element 47 received its first 5-Star Restaurant Award.

Whether you ski in for lunch, drop in at the bar for a more casual rendezvous, or join us for the most special of occasions, you’ll be greeted with warmth, not formality. There is no dress code --  "Aspen casual" is ideal attire. We are pleased to accommodate diners with any food allergies, intolerances and dietary restrictions. You’ll find the ambience – ceiling-height glass cases with some of our rarest wines, art by Michelle Grabner, Cameron Martin, Angel Otero, Scott Reeder, Philip Vanderhyden, José Lerma – as fine as the dining.
