Hidden in a Valley just outside Aspen is the Woody Creek Tavern. You may have heard of it, you may not have heard of it but set way off the beaten track this little Tavern is a true slice of American history. 

Dodging the old hitching posts in the parking lot and scurrying from the snow into the warmth of the Woody Creek you are instantly hit by the smell of cooking steak, spilt ales and above all the hundreds upon hundreds of 'things' that line the walls of the Tavern, old polaroids, rusty licence plates, newspaper clippings and original artwork... a sensory overload.

Not the usual 'glitzy' restaurant you may find in the surrounding areas of Aspen and Snowmass, this place provides a breath of fresh air to not only the locals but to the array of celebrities that have eaten there; Hunter S. Thompson, Don Johnson and of course John Legend...

Not to mention they serve the BEST steak on earth...

Aspen may have changed, but one thing's for sure, the Woody Creek will always remain the same!


  1. This place looks awesome, i'll have to check it out if I ever go to Aspen!


  2. Oh, that steak looks unbelievably good. I'd enjoy the place... if they'd just take down the picture of "The Duke."
