Five Reasons to Ring in The New Year in Aspen

Are you planning to be in Aspen for this New Year’s Eve? If you’re still unsure of your plans, why not come to Aspen and celebrate with the town and its wonderful people? If you’re not quite convinced, let us show you.

1. Drinks


New Year’s Eve is a celebration of this year’s successes, failures, and memories, and those things need a proper toast.

Fortunately, Aspen offers some of the finest and most diverse spirits, brews, and wines from around the world. There are countless venues hosting bashes around town, offering the finest cocktails and Champagne. (Although we challenge anyone to top the Dom Pérignon Party.) Come enjoy a glass or three as you watch the fireworks above Aspen mountain.There is no better reason to cheers.

2. Music

With four musical acts at The Little Nell alone, the celebration is guaranteed to last all night long. Jane’s Addiction is playing at the Belly Up  and countless other bands and DJs will be serenading the town.

3. Aspen’s Legendary Food Scene


We don’t expect you to dance and drink all night without some food in your system. With some of the finest restaurants in Colorado, you can eat whatever and wherever you desire.

May we suggest our own element 47 for food and wine pairing prepared by our Master Sommelier, Carlton McCoy? For a more casual experience, we recommend our sister hotel, The Limelight’s Lounge, which serves up brick oven pizza. For a late night snack, we’ll be serving up gourmet street food, such as oysters, duck pot stickers, pretzel bites and more.

4. Fireworks Over Aspen Mountain


The annual fireworks display over Aspen Mountain is the highlight of the evening. There’s no better way to ring in the New Year than with a champagne toast under fireworks with your loved ones.
For a unique viewing experience, we have three Clicquot Cats for the 8 pm and midnight fireworks shows. Enjoy champagne, caviar, and hot chocolate as you watch the magnificent fireworks from a private viewing area at the top of Little Nell ski run.

5. Memories 

Between the party favors and decor, you can reminisce on this special night for years to come. If you’ve never experienced Aspen during New Years, this is your year. And if you have, we promise this year will be one to remember. Come ski, eat, and drink all the way into the new year.
