With ski season in full swing, add another après-ski hot spot to your list; The Handle Bar at Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole opens its doors on Dec. 17. Located on the third floor of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, the American pub and beer hall will serve up classic bar food with a dynamic spin — think Korean barbecue salmon burger with cucumber kimchi and charred Fresno peppers, and Rocky Mountain elk chili.
It’s Michael Mina’s first restaurant in the glitzy ski town, but with a menu focusing on game and local ingredients, we’re sure it will be well received. Whether you’re looking to warm up after a day of shredding Jackson Hole Mountain or fueling up for a snowmobile trip through Yellowstone, a meal at The Handle Bar will surely do the trick.
And when you’ve thawed out, indulge in the après-ski scene with the pub’s wide selection of beer (both American and international), whiskey and wine. Pair that with provisions like Snake River Brewery beer-battered onion rings — dipped in “baconaise,” of course — and you’ve got yourself quite the happy hour.
The Jackson Hole restaurant will also churn out hot toddies and a selection of adult milkshakes.
