Description: Contemporary and classic, entirely reimagined. A modern lobby bar and restaurant, where definitive fare has a decidedly Vermont twist. A comfortable, casual space that brings the outdoors in, and the indoors out. The Roost is a place to meet up and hang out. Where you can grab a seat, a bite, and a game at our Shuffleboard Dining Bar, or gather in our patio living room - under a pergola, near a fire pit, bocce court, and a reflecting pool. Or, lounge on oversized couches while you sample one of our Chef's nibbles, the perfect plates to go with a craft draft beer or creative cocktail. Food served until 10:00 PM.

“Great bar food”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Although it is located near the reception of the Topnotch Hotel, the bar feels separate from the entrance area. It has a great vibe. Great drinks, tapas style menu with good/creative variations. Helpful staff with dietary restrictions, went as far as to ask the chef for options. Kids of all ages allowed. Decor is mid century modern with a twist.

“Stowe bars finally grow up!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to grab a drink and some small plates. Sit outside by the roaring fire and take in the sunset... I felt like I was in Sonoma...very modern, but comfortable.

“Great View AND Great Food!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful meal for 17 as a prelude to a wedding the next day at the Roost. The setting was spectacular, the menu was interesting and fun and the staff could not have been nicer to our large party. Our party had children to older adults and everyone found something good to enjoy. It was a perfect evening to begin the weekend's celebration.

“Great addition to the Stowe scene!”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Stopped by the Roost and ordered a bunch of appetizers from their menu. So many to chose from, all delicious options! My favorites were the margarita fries, roost wings, pierogi and the scallops! The BLT was also very good. They also had a great list of craft beers and signature cocktails to choose from. The staff was very lively and polite. Definitely a great addition to the many restaurants and bars in Stowe! If it is nice out, sit on the patio- great views!!

“Lots of Action & Fun”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Stopped in to Roost for a snack after the movies last week. One of the few places in Stowe open after 10:00pm. Excellent food, good-sized portions and the place had a real buzz going. Much better than the old ButterTub Lounge that it replaced. Definitely would go back
