When the sun goes down, the fun is just getting started in Vail, Colorado. There is a phrase the locals like to use, “ski hard, play hard”. Even after a full day of skiing, it is hard to resist the pull of the energy that resonates through town once the lifts close. There are so many options for grown-up fun after a day on the hill, from lively sing-a-long alehouses, to charming European taverns, to epic nightclubs and chic cafes. Live music abounds from après-ski to après-dinner at many of Vail’s hangouts, and dancing is a must to end the night with DJ’s and dance grooves in Vail’s fabulous nightspots.
