DINING

Whether for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even just a drink—do not miss Eight K and Executive Chef Will Nolan’s creole-inspired menu and cocktail list. The open kitchen, 87-foot glass topped bar under lit by blue LEDs and supported by thinly-sliced tree trunks, along with gorgeous views highlight this sprawling space. Whether sampling Nolan’s bbq shrimp & grits or swilling Colorado artisanal liquors from the new Barrel Cocktail menu, Eight K is a feast for both your eyes and stomach. Ask Nolan, an avid snowboarder, where he’ll be riding the next day and he might even let you in on a secret powder stash.
