THE LOUNGE: Aspen Restaurant & Bar

Stick around and join us for dining in Aspen. Our gourmet comfort food will keep you well fed. Starting with included continental breakfast, served community style in the Lounge. When late afternoon hits, we welcome guests and locals to dig into our friendly après food and drink specials. To boot, our full dinner menu is available evenings in the Lounge, for in-room dining, or take-out.

Things are changing around these parts—the Limelight Hotel Aspen will undergo renovations over the summer and fall of 2021.
We'll be closed beginning April 18th, but look forward to welcoming you back for the winter season


For our guests, we offer quite the breakfast spread. Join us from 7 until 10am daily in the Lounge, our Aspen restaurant and bar. Whether you’re skiing or mountain biking, or just strolling Aspen's streets for a little window shopping, we have a breakfast that will fuel you up and get you ready to go. Learn more about some of the delicious buffet items you’ll find.


No matter what season it is, we call our happiest four hours of the day “après.” Ask anyone and they’ll tell you the Lounge bar is the place to be in Aspen from 3–5pm each day. Après at the Limelight’s Loungealso features some of Aspen's favorite local bands every Friday through Sunday from 6–9pm. Learn more about menu selections and specials.


As dinner service begins, guests are served generous portions of delicious, Italian fare. Our dining menu puts an emphasis on featuring the finest local and organic ingredients, and everything on the menu is available for in-room dining or take-out. Learn more about dining in Aspen at The Lounge.

Live Local Music

Local bands love playing the Lounge. It makes our booking agent’s job very easy. And it makes your post-skiing, post-mountain biking, post-anything job pretty easy, too. Every Friday through Sunday, meet us for après and let the musicians take it from there.

Note: There will not be any live music performances in the Limelight Aspen Lounge for the winter 2020-21 season.

Specialty Dinners

Limelight Summer Harvest Dinner Series at the Lounge in Aspen has been temporarily put on hold due to the rapidly changing environment. We hope to resume this dining experience in Aspen again for the '21 summer season.
