The Best Après Bars in Killington, Vermont

Posted by Evan Williams on

Killington is widely recognized as one of the best ski destinations in the Northeast when it comes to après ski bars and nightlife. The long access road is littered with restaurants and bars, meaning there’s almost too much to choose from. 

Allow us to do the work for you. Here are the best après ski bars and restaurants in Killington.

Best of the Best: The Lookout Tavern

Amazing beer snacks, great beer, and a fun crowd makes this our go-to

As our favorite après spot in Killington, The Lookout is usually our go-to after skiing. The après ski hours are usually packed with a friendly crowd of skiers. There’s free peanuts (go ahead and throw your shells on the floor), a solid beer selection, and a menu that will 100% satisfy your post-skiing munchies.

Pro Tip: The lookout has a shuttle that picks you up and takes you home so you can après as hard as you want.

Address: 2910 Killington Rd, Killington, VT 05751

Phone Number: (802) 422-5665


Best Food: Sushi Yoshi

Sushi and free wings? Twist our arms

A great pick if you’re hungry after skiing. Sushi Yoshi always runs après ski deals on certain appetizers like free wings from 3-6pm. Great drinks, good atmosphere.

Address: 1807 Killington Rd, Killington, VT 05751

Phone Number: (802) 422-4241


Best Views: Peak Lodge

On-mountain rest stop with jaw-dropping views


The lodge at the top of the K1 gondola was recently reconstructed, and the new set up makes for some unreal views. Floor-to-ceiling windows make this one of the most scenic places to get a drink in New England. Absolutely worth stopping for a midday beverage to take in the scenery.

Address: Top of the K1 gondola. 4763 Killington Rd, Killington, VT 05751

Phone Number: (800) 621-6867


Après-All-Day: Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar

All-out Euro-style après

Located at the base of Superstar, this traditional “umbrella bar” is much like bars you would see at ski areas in Europe. A great spot to stop for a beverage midday or hit up after the lifts close. This place goes all out for après, especially when it’s warm out.

Address: 4563 Killington Rd, Killington, VT 05751


Best Late-Night: Wobbly Barn

A Killington classic, complete with live music and an on-call shuttle

If you’re trying to party, hit up the Wobbly Barn. A steakhouse/music venue/club combo, the place has built itself quite the reputation in Killington as the go-to late-night spot in town. There’s also a free shuttle that you can call to take you to and from the Barn. Not too shabby, Wobbly Barn. Not too shabby.
