Aspen Bartini's like the Blue Square of actually going to Aspen: apres-ski accents like cedar-paneled walls, antler candelabras & chandeliers, and a live-edge walnut slab bar wrapping around a baby grand, plus a generally forgiving attitude toward you falling down a lot.
Just like real Coloradans, they've got the munchies covered, serving small plates of habanero fish tacos, crisp Kolbi wings (i.e. spicy, Korean BBQ-marinated), two types of sliders, and crab cakes from the "Crab Capital of The World", Crisfield, MD (apparently also the "Bravado capital of the world"). Drink-wise, they've got your classics (Manhattans, sugar-cubed Sazeracs), plus modernized 'tails from the "Enlightened Aspen" w/ Tito's & St. Germain, to pineapple guava caipirinhas w/ Captain Morgan, also a nickname given to the CNN anchor by his Piers.
And get this: the manager will take your song requests on that baby grand piano, which uses some sort of alien technology to play itself -- also sort of what you're doing by living in a state where weed isn't legal.
