Hours: Open Monday-Friday 3p-2a, Saturday and Sunday 2p-2a
Every town needs to have that one bar where locals gather to watch the big game. In Vail, this is the Altitude Billiards & Sports, located inside a hotel though most of their clientele are locals. This is known as the best place in the area to get a good plate of chicken wings in a variety of different flavors. When it comes to having a few drinks in a laid-back atmosphere with the game on in the background, this is the place.
Along with their great food, they offer a recreation area with billiards tables, steel darts, foosball, and even a vintage pinball machine. This can offer hours of entertainment with drinks, especially when you can enjoy all of that while watching a great game on either their super-sized projection TV or one of the many LCD TVs throughout the restaurant. Considering this is more bar style than restaurant style many come here for drinks and appetizers, though it could also be a decent place for a traveling family to enjoy a meal after a day on the slopes.
What They’re Known for: Sports, wings, alcohol, and bar entertainment.
What to Watch for: Up and down crowds. If there’s a big game on, this place may be packed. On off nights, you can enjoy a reasonably quiet meal and adult beverage with plenty of elbow room.
