Some of the nightlife comes in the form of restaurants with evening entertainment and private clubs which offer dining, wine tastings, and nightclub experiences. In Aspen, eating itself can be an attraction when done with knowledgeable waiters, sommeliers, and chefs to guide you. Hire a personal chef to come to your vacation rental and show you a few new kitchen tips. They will even help you to choose kitchen items should you wish to go for a kitchen consultation. Or have your chef prepare something extraordinary for you and surprise a loved one with a romantic evening in.
If you want to learn more about various cuisines, you can sign up for local cooking classes. These classes give you hands-on demonstrations and wine pairings. Chefs help out, teach, and cook the meal for you. Enjoy Classic French Gastronomy, Italian, Thai, and more.
Local brewery tours can offer you craft beer and more. Along with wine and beer tasting, you can often dine and also enjoy live entertainment all in the same establishment. After sampling the products and learning more about the process, you can find bottled beer, growlers, and other quantities to purchase and take back to your chalet. Local breweries also host Happy Hour events from approximately 5 to 7 PM daily, so this is a nice chance to mingle with the locals during your stay.
