The Wine Bar

The Little Nell's former apres-ski bar, Chair 9, will transform into a vibrant wine bar this winter season, offering intimate seating areas and an extensive list of wines by the glass. Overseen by Wine Director Chris Dunaway and his team of sommeliers, The Wine Bar will be open daily from 3 - 7 pm with reservations for parties up to 8 people in private booths and couches. The wine bar will feature around 35 different wines by the glass, 16 wine enomatics on tap, a charcuterie carving station and cheese boards for light bites, as well as a full bar menu. With a lounge-style ambiance, DJs will play daily, set up safely behind a glass partition, spinning Hotel Costes-type downtempo tracks on vinyl/analog. From 7:30 pm - 10 pm, the space is available for private, customized wine dinners, offered as a buyout for one group per night with reservations required, accommodating up to 50 guests with personal sommelier service, a DJ and more. Please contact our Events Team to inquire about booking the wine bar for a private function.
