After a long day on the mountains and in the snow, round out your day with a well-earned beer or cocktail and something to nosh. Call it happy hour, après ski or whatever you like. Here’s our list of places to refuel with comfort food and beverages in Bend and beyond. Some also offers discounts for showing your season pass or lift ticket. Find a fireplace and kick up your feet—you earned it.
Ask locals where they go for their après ski, and they’ll tell you The Row. The Scottish-inspired menu will warm you up, as will the drinks and the fireplace. If kids still have the energy, they can sled on the snow at the golf course.
Open every day 12 p.m. – 12 a.m.
Discount seasonal après ski menu starts at 1 p.m.
If you make it down from the mountain in time, head to Twisted Tavern at Sunriver so you can eat, drink and gaze at the sunset from the lower level. The best bite to pair with your drink is the homemade pretzel.
Open every day 4 p.m. – 12 a.m.
Show pass or lift ticket for half-off appetizers and desserts at happy hour
Sip Wine Bar
For the rare above-freezing evening in Central Oregon, head to Sip Wine Bar. The outside patio always has a roaring fire going to keep you warm while you try flights of wine or champagne.
Open Tuesday through Sunday 4 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Show pass or lift ticket for happy hour pricing all night
Though it’s inside the members-only Athletic Club, Bistro 28 is open to the public. One of the best parts of the restaurant is that you can get full service on the couches by the fireplace.
Open every day 4:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Purchase an entrée and show your pass or lift ticket and receive a discount on artisan pizzas or a free dessert.
Cascades Lakes Lodge
On the way back from the mountains, stop at Cascade Lakes Lodge not only because you’re ravenous and it’s the first place you’ll find in town, but also because the pub food is as comforting as the atmosphere. Find pool tables, darts and a fireplace to wind down after a cold, snowy day.
Open every day 11:30 a.m. – close. Happy hour Monday-Friday 4 – 6 p.m.
The Village Bar and Grill at the Village at Sunriver
The Village Bar and Grill was recently renovated with a bigger patio and space inside to find ample seating by the fire.
Open every day 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Happy hour 3-6 p.m. (Thirsty Thursday all day happy hour)
For those looking for something other than beer, try Atlas Cider in the Box Factory buildings near the Old Mill District. The taproom has couches by a fireplace if you’re looking to relax. Vintage pinball machines and arcade games offer a great diversion for the 12-year-old kid in us all.
Open every day, times vary
Cider flights are 25% off when you show your pass or lift ticket
At Velvet, you’re likely to be rubbing elbows with same people you sat shoulder-to-shoulder with on a chairlift ride just a few hours earlier. The bar vibe is hipster-casual, with unique cocktails and craft beer served in mason jars.
Open every day, times vary. Happy hour 5 – 7 p.m.
After a day on the mountain, we think there’s nothing better a burrito from Parilla and $1 PBR to wash it all down. It’s one of the more popular stops on the way back from Mt. Bachelor, so be prepared to wait longer than you did in the lift lines.
Open every day 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Happy hour 4 – 5 p.m.
