Eric’s is a cornerstone of Aspen nightlife. How can one go wrong when you have the choice of three watering holes in one location. “The Cigar Bar” is where you can find the one and only Lori L. our BOTW, she is top-notch , lovely and no-nonsense all in one package (what a rarity). Eric’s is so dynamic and that’s why it is always on our list when we are out and about for night in town. The Cigar Bar is where you can find us the most though. The general atmosphere is not only inviting, it also has a layer of groove thanks to mellow lighting and great tunes that are played all night. Conversation is easily made here not only with Lori, who is sure to make you laugh, but with anyone you are with or may meet. The lounge area cultivates intimacy, while the bar area gives you plenty of room to mingle with a new found interest or friends from days past. So without further ado let’s say hi to Lori a true staple of the bartending scene here in Aspen.
