WHY GO » Icicle-shaped lights dangle over blue-gray banquettes. The curved bar glows like phosphorescent cracked ice. DJs spin. Daily happy hour draws both hotel guests and word-of-mouth patrons from the village. Frost pours 55 fine tequilas, 40 single malts, a dozen hard-to-find bourbons, and more than 30 beers while also crafting cool originals like the Antioxidant (infused with blueberry and pomegranate) and the prosecco-based Elixir No. 16.

WHY GO » Soignée goes family-style in this slopeside great room. Carved limestone fireplaces and a gleaming pewter bar are balanced by hand-scraped wood floors and inviting clusters of cushy seating. The afternoon s’mores bar (where Jet-Puffed and chef-crafted cinnamon ’mallows meet artisanal chocolate and fresh-baked grahams), Asian-inspired tapas (salt-and-sugar pork buns), and nightly piano or guitar with vocals are home runs for kids and their folks.

WHY GO » A smart facelift, a new chef (David Lutz, formerly sous-chef at San Fran’s Postrio), and new, wallet-friendly menu selections join impresario JJ Morgan’s smokin’ hot live jazz from around the globe. Overhead, vintage black-and-white cartoons play silently. On your plate, new gastropub fare (truffled deviled eggs, handcrafted corn dogs) pairs with select California casks on tap.
