A hot new collab is coming to chilly Aspen this winter as Ponyboy, one of Brooklyn’s top nightlife venues, is joining forces with W Aspen for a five-month winter residency. The idea is that the Greenpoint watering hole’s signature cocktails and vibes will create a new perspective within the beloved ski town, and in the process, create a local hangout.
The mastermind behind the never-ending party is Ponyboy’s co-owner James Dorje, who will travel to Aspen for the residency, bringing along a cast of Ponyboy’s best and brightest bartenders and vibe curators for Aspen’s first-ever Brooklyn takeover. Dorje will also tap a rotating list of the world’s best DJs who will play in the space, making it the perfect aprés-ski destination. Fellow Ponyboy co-owner and Beverage Director Christopher Reyes has created a unique cocktail menu for the winter outpost, which kicks off on December 15 and will continue through the entire 2022-2023 ski season.
Every night of the week, from 5pm until 2am, hotel guests, Aspen visitors and locals alike can sip on signature cocktails like the Forgetmenot (Ilegal Mezcal, watermelon, ginger, and lime jalapeño with a matcha salt rim), the Tiki Mountain (bourbon, rye, passionfruit, lemon, dry curacao, maraschino, and tiki bitters) and the Demerara Dry Float (Bacardi Blanco and 151, lime, passionfruit, maraschino, and raspberry) which serves six to eight guests. Classic cocktails like espresso martinis, Hot Toddy’s, and eggnog also appear on the menu.
