The Cascades Whiskey Bar is part of the Cascades Restaurant inside The Stanley Hotel, but it’s so unique that it deserved its own post.
Its claim to fame (aside from being part of The Stanley, of “The Shining” fame) is that it offers over 900 whiskey varieties. That’s a lot of whiskey. It’s the largest selection of whiskeys, bourbons, and scotch available in Colorado. They offer these individually or in flights, and they also serve beer, wine, and cocktails.
The bar is a gorgeous wood affair under a pressed tin ceiling, and the thought of it being in a haunted hotel makes it that much cooler.
Service in the bar area can be slow to non-existent, so sit at the bar if you can nab a spot.
Also, everything at the Stanley is a bit pricey; you’re paying for the ambience, which may or may not be worth it to you. Also be aware that they charge for parking in the summer.
