Vail is a resort town and the party never stops.
The people who are in Vail Village on any given night are most likely either working there or on vacation. During the winter, vacationers usually spend the day skiing, the afternoons resting, the early evenings eating dinner, and the late evenings having fun in town.
While skiing is a tiring sport and leaves many people with a need to get in bed at 8 p.m., there are many people who enjoy partying during the nighttime hours. For those who want to stay up late, there are plenty of restaurants and bars that stay open and provide live music and entertainment. There are several types of musicians who work in Vail, including those who specialize in jazz, piano, classical, and pop.
The restaurants in Vail Village and in Lionshead do just about everything they can to make their patrons are happy because visitors and tourists to the Vail area are practically the only source of income that keeps them in business. So, the waiters, waitresses and entertainers in the restaurants and bars work very hard to make sure everyone is having a good time.
Vail was not a town at all until the ski resort was created. Because much of Colorado consists of what used to be mining towns, some of the restaurants and bars in Vail are designed to mimic classic Western saloons. These locations are fun to visit because they provide a certain type of “Old West” atmosphere that is unique to this part of the world.
