From Montauk to Aspen: The Snow Lodge, sister property of The Surf Lodge, is back and better than ever. The supper club and after-dinner lounge is opening this month at the St. Regis Aspen Resort.
After a day on the mountain, escape to The Snow Lodge’s upscale restaurant and lounge featuring deep velvets and local art sourced from Aspen galleries, creating the perfect vibe for live performances. Expect a curated concert series with DJ sets and unplugged acoustic sets by both up-and-coming and established acts.
The brainchild of Montauk’s Surf Lodge founder and creative director, Jayma Cardoso, in collaboration with Stephane De Baets of Elevated Returns and Chefs Club, The Snow Lodge is the ultimate apres ski experience. “We’re so excited to be back in Aspen,” says Cardoso. “After spending last winter locked down, we wanted to bring people back together in an intimate setting and create unforgettable experiences. We think The Snow Lodge will be the perfect place to do just that.”
The residency will kick off for the season with artist and musician Brandon Boyd and photographer Brian Bowen Smith, followed by visual artist Heart Evangelista and others including Zoe Buckman and Brandon Ralph. Singer-songwriter Léon and Jake Wesley Rogers are scheduled to perform, with more artists to be announced in the coming weeks.
While the music sets the scene, the food may steal the show. Chef Mark Connell, formerly of Casa d’Angelo, is spearheading the menu which includes both shareables and large plates featuring contemporary and classic Italian preparations. Small plates include options such as Olive All’Ascolana (fried castelvetranos stuffed with sausage) and imported Buratta with tomato olive Battuta, basil and grilled bread, as well as Chef Connell’s signature “seamless” ravioli. Robert Sieber will oversee the kitchen as culinary director.
“Chefs Club has always been more than offering a great menu. It’s about curating the best experience for our guests,” says DeBaets. “With that thought in mind, we have partnered with The Surf Lodge brand this season—the first time since our inception that we are bringing on a partner outside of just strictly the food and beverage arena. The Snow Lodge will have elevated dishes but also music and cultural programming for a truly memorable experience."
Spend the holidays in style as The Snow Lodge hosts a series of events including hat maker Nick Fouquet’s holiday party, a dinner for the Aspen Art Museum celebrating their exclusive Warhol exhibit, an apres series with sets featuring DJ Cassidy and Elderbook and a New Year’s Eve party with surprise musical acts. 315 E.
