Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro is legendary for a reason: channeling authentic European Alpine culture in a warm, welcoming environment.

Lunch service feels like a slice of Switzerland in the Rocky Mountains with layered helpings of fondue and raclette as well as steak tartare, caviar and delectable daily specials. The wine list includes an ever-changing array of international varieties and fine Champagne. For dessert: strudel, anyone?

Guests must be 21 or older to enter the après seating, with a valid ID required at entry. Failure to present an ID, or presenting a fake ID, will result in denied access and may lead to reporting to authorities in compliance with local laws.
