Say “après ski” and most people picture something strikingly similar to Ajax Tavern — glamorous yet easy. Its sun-drenched, mountainside patio can be seen from halfway up the mountain — a simple target for lunch or cocktails. Arrive, and let the people-watching begin: there’s no better seat in town.

Located right next to the Silver Queen Gondola, Ajax Tavern is the hub for casual fine dining in an unbeatable atmosphere. The Tavern comes to life at lunch, and the party rolls on well into the night. If you go no further on the menu, try the truffle fries and Ajax double cheeseburger — they earned their reputation.
