Where to Go for Après Skiing in Mammoth Lakes

Après skiing is a tradition we treasure almost as much as the the mountains themselves. Because as much as it’s a bummer that the ski day ends at 4:30PM, at least we can drink! And we don’t care if you’re still wearing your ski boots either. That being said, here’s our my vote for the best places to go after you’ve finished your day on the slopes.

Slocums Grill & Bar

3221 Main St
Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546

Slocums is the perfect spot to walk into right off the mountain. Self-proclaimed as Mammoth’s Best Happy Hour since 1983, be sure to get there 4-6pm Monday through Friday. With $4 well drinks, $4 craft beers, and $5 margaritas, it’s tough to contend their claim as the best Happy Hour in Mammoth.

Mammoth Tavern

587 Old Mammoth Rd, Suite 10
Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546

This is an awesome bar with a beautiful mountain view and great happy hour from 4-5:30 pm daily. I highly recommend the $6 mules, 1/2 off wine, wells and drafts. $2.25 oysters on the half shell, and $3 craft beers. So whether you’re at the mountain just to drink or looking to chill after a day of skiing, this is a great option for you.

Clocktower Cellar Pub

6080 Minaret Rd
Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546

Great local bar in the heart of Mammoth. This pub is located in an awesome basement venue. During Happy Hour, beers are $2 off the list price and they have a great selection. They also have a lot of good food options like $5 fish taco plates, quesadillas, and fish & chips. A bit divey, but that just adds to the personality of the place.

Roberto’s Mexican Cafe

271 Old Mammoth Rd
Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546

$3 Margaritas, need I say more? In addition, they have awesome burritos and a great atmosphere. If you want a real mountain bar feel with a Mexican twist, this is the spot for you.

Austria Hof Restaurant

924 Canyon Blvd
Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546

This is a Happy Hour that really emphasizes their great food deals. So many food options at reduced prices from 4-7pm Monday through Friday. As far as recommendations, I like the poke salad, calamari, sea scallops, sweet and spicy wings.
