Friendly staff, great drinks and a small resort hangout are what make up Arapahoe Basin’s renowned bar and grill at the base of the mountain. It’s a lot about the atmosphere at the 6th Alley Bar and Grill, and it is a must-stop for apres-ski imbibing. This is the place where visitors and locals alike blend into a fun, eclectic scene, and tales and truths are told from everyone’s stellar day on the slopes. It is welcoming to all, creating the classic apres-ski crowd, complete with live music on Saturdays. When you are here, ask the locals about the other five “alleys” off the Pallavicini lift. The menu has a variety of crowd-pleasing items, including veggie wraps, soup, pizza, burgers, salmon, ribs and desserts. The 6th Alley is open only during the ski season.
