Rusty Nail Bar & Grille, Stowe

1190 Mountain Road
Stowe , Vermont
Tel: 802 253 6245's insider take:

Weekenders from Boston, New York, and beyond are drawn to the outdoor ice bar and the rock-the-rafters music at this historic ski-town bar. The Rusty Nail first opened in 1969 and went through several iterations and owners before the current management team took over in 2004 and added such modern-day gimmicks as a martini bar. (After a day on Stowe's Front Four, you may need a Black and Blue martini—Blavod Black Vodka over blue Curaçao.) Exposed high beams and a sunken dance floor have remained faithful to the Nail's original purpose: to get skiers and riders in serious revelry mode.

Call ahead for hours.
