Aspen's night life is legendary. The undisputed champion of Aspen After Dark is the extremely private, CARIBOU CLUB. Aspen has a few contenders and several pretenders, but "the bou" is clearly the "King of the Night".
The super-posh Caribou Club has been a fixture in Aspen for decades. Caribou's longevity is amazing, given that the typical lifecycle for a nightclub in Aspen is about 2 seasons, . Conceived by mythic developer Harley Baldwin who turned lower level "dead space" on the Collins block into the most exclusive club between NYC and LA. Membership has its privileges @ Caribou. The dining room is renown for its cuisine and can accommodate private parties of any size. Members can have a cozy dinner for two in one of the elegant banquettes or they can go HUGE in a private dining room.
After dinner, the Bou turns into the best night-club in America. Around 11 pm, the tables are cleared, the music begins to pulse and all the beautiful people start to "get after it". The storied dance floor fills up fast with fabulous women and antique men (just kidding guys). Its a party scene that should not be missed. Caribou members always have first priority of course, but temporary members and guests can sometimes make the cut. Proprietor Billy Stolz and his right hand lady, Brenda Barna run an extremely tight ship @ the door. So dress sharp, tip big and if you're really a playa, maybe, just maybe, you too can experience Aspen after dark the way it should be experienced--- ------at the legendary CARIBOU CLUB.
