Concierge.com's insider take:
A short walk (or stumble) from the Wobbly Barn, the Pickle Barrel is not quite as old (it opened in 1971) but is equally legendary, thanks to its stellar entertainment lineup. Everyone from Snoop Dogg to Jason Mraz has played to the pickled crowds here. And like the Wobbly Barn, the Pickle Barrel draws people for après-ski, and then keeps them partying all night to live bands. Expect to shed many layers of ski gear here as the dance floor heats up. Also expect to pay a $20 cover on the weekends and to wind up the ski season, usually in April, with the annual miniskirt party.
Open daily 4 pm to 2 am, October through April.
