Element 47, a Michelin Guide-recommended restaurant, is Aspen’s finest spot to wine, dine and unwind. The name Element 47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine — for breakfast, lunch, après and dinner, seven days a week.

Whether you ski-in for lunch, drop-in at the bar for a more casual rendezvous, or join us for the most special of occasions, you’ll be greeted with warmth, not formality. There is no dress code: “Aspen casual” is ideal attire. We are pleased to accommodate diners with any food allergies, intolerances and dietary restrictions. You’ll find the ambiance — ceiling-height glass cases with some of our rarest wines, art by Michelle Grabner, Cameron Martin, Angel Otero, Scott Reeder, Philip Vanderhyden, José Lerma — as fine as the dining.

Private Events & Groups

Aspen’s “finest spot to wine, dine and unwind,” is also a fabulous event venue. It can host 86 guests seated, and a reception for 110 – or with the outdoor patio, 200. We offer a menu featuring fresh regional ingredients with a spectacular presentation, and a wine cellar that Wine Spectator calls one of the best in the country. We have two private dining spaces. Table 47, which can host parties up to 14, and The Gallery, which features a glass wine wall and original works of art and can host 45 seated or receptions up to 65.
