Big Sky’s low key on-mountain vibe extends to its nightlife scene: there aren’t large throngs of people to mingle with, which can be nice if you’re looking to “get away,” but Big Sky bars are a perfect place for a relaxing après drink. And while Big Sky bars may not be teeming with college students and Spring Breakers, you will find like-minded people who truly enjoy slowing down on their ski vacation. The Big Sky nightlife exists in a handful of base village restaurants and hotel bars, as well as the town of Big Sky which houses local hot spot the Lone Peak Brewery.
Whiskey Jack’s is the main lunch, après, and dinner joint at the base of the mountain. Guests will find they have incredible beer selection and hearty pub food, ideal for a big day of skiing. Generally there’s live music and a fun, but laid back vibe. Scissorbill’s Saloon is another great spot for live music, hearty food and satiating adult beverages. Don’t miss the corn nuggets, nachos and margaritas. Chet’s offers cozy couches, a roaring fireplace, hearty menu and the entertainment of the Crazy Austrians.
