Traveling champagne bar back on Aspen Mountain
ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — A traveling champagne bar that debuted on Aspen Mountain last season is back after county officials signed off on renewing the pop-up bubbly bar.
The Aspen Times reports Wednesday that Pitkin County commissioners have cleared Aspen Skiing Co. to revive the mobile champagne bar (http://bit.ly/U7cbWR ). Skico is using an “optional premises” provision of its liquor license for the champagne bar.
The champagne bar consists of tables set up at sunny spots on the mountain. Skico plans to set up the bar again for spring skiing, starting on Presidents Day weekend, but it did uncork the bar for opening day this winter, given the unseasonably high temperatures.
The bar operated on weekends last season, selling small, snow-chilled flutes of Veuve Clicquot for $15 each.
