May Selby: Night Fever
September 13, 2008
The nightlife culture in Aspen offers something for everyone – from clubbing to concerts, the list goes on.
A popular stop on the radar since last winter has been the Fly Lounge with its leer jet interior and “fly attendants” serving drinks and complimentary peanuts. By the time the clock strikes 11 on any given evening, the subterranean club begins to boil over with night owls seeking fun in the fuselage. The Regal Watering Hole around the corner offers another alternative with their wide range of music to appeal to all Over Labor Day weekend, BoomBox was back in town for a two-night stint at The Regal. Having been to Aspen a month prior for their show at The Crystal Palace Grille, the duet drew a crowd of new fans to join in their journey into sound and revelation. The band’s wild attire, bright lights, and improvisational musical sets are its signature style.
Social Restaurant and Lounge on restaurant row also offer the ideal setting for nighttime antics. Over Labor Day weekend, local Scott Sumner celebrated his big 5-0 with a bash at the hip establishment. The 70’s-theme shindig transcended Social’s street-level restaurant, outdoor patio and upstairs lounge and deck. Wine flowed like water as guests dressed in disco era attire frolicked from floor to floor, blending in with the eclectic decor and ambiance.
