Cold? Del Ray’s pop-up bar is going to resemble an Aspen ski lodge

If you need a break from those harsh winter conditions, Del Ray’s seasonal popup bar will resemble a ski lodge in Aspen, Colorado, when it opens early next month.

“Aspen On The Avenue” is the latest effort from Homegrown Restaurant Group owners Bill Blackburn and “Mango” Mike Anderson. The bar and restaurant is being outfitted with skis on the walls, fake fireplaces and more.

“We’re going to create our version of an Après-ski cocktail lounge, and make you feel like you just finished a day on the slopes and you’re going to relax with a craft cocktail,” Blackburn told us. “It’s going to have a very warm feel. Think rough timber, fur, brick, fireplaces, skis and snowboards, hot toddy’s, sharable appetizers and our twists on classics.”

Blackburn said that the bar will open early next month, and will then close at the end of the season and reopen as a new concept in the spring.

“It’s going to be a cold winter,” Blackburn said. “We’ve got a couple more snows in us and it’s going to be a great place to warm up.”
