Stowe , Vermont
Concierge.com's insider take:
In classic Vermont style, the Matterhorn is the small-town general store of nightlife. One stop, and you get it all—sushi, microbrews, pizza, wings, and live music. Plus, you run into everyone you know, or chat up the people you don't. True, tuna rolls and beer-sticky floors aren't always the best of bedfellows, but at the Matterhorn, it works. The martinis and the burgers are good, too, and the local cover bands that play on Friday and Saturday nights are just the right fit for the chummy, family-friendly atmosphere—you'll see kids dancing right alongside their parents.
Open Wednesdays through Saturdays 5 pm to 2 am, May through November 1; daily 2 pm to 2 am, November 2 through April.
