Coming Soon to Greenville: Après Ski Lodge Bar & Lounge at The Press Room
GREENVILLE, S.C. – The Press Room, crafted in the tradition of speakeasys, is a bar and lounge tucked away inside the AC Hotel Greenville. On November 9, the space transforms into The Après Ski Lodge Bar & Lounge, a new pop-up winter wonderland created in partnership with Veuve Clicquot.
This one-of-a-kind concept feels a bit like a members-only club, but with an approachable, comfortable air. It promises to capture the après ski (French for “after skiing”) feel of high-end winter resorts and ski lodges around the world. The vibe is inspired by the legendary memories of friends loosening their boots and reuniting over drinks after an epic day on the slopes. The space also serves as a premier venue to host unique, fully-decorated business and small group gatherings, such as holiday parties. Buyout packages include food and beverage spend.
The unique, immersive experience combines alpine cabin comfort with a flair for the quirky. A life-sized yeti welcomes all guests and is more than happy to pose for a selfie. The rustic, skithemed décor features sprawling, snow-capped mountain peaks that transport you to the base of a 14,000 foot slope in the French Alps. Patrons can relax by the fireplace and be served by staff fully decked-out in puffer vests and knit caps.
The Après Ski Bar & Lounge at The Press Room, well-known for its handcrafted, specialty cocktails, will feature a new limited edition drink menu, creatively curated by Beverage Director Baileigh Wilson. This fun, yet sophisticated drink menu embraces tongue-in-cheek names such as “Yeti or Not, Here We Come” and “Ski Patrol”. Plenty of funky, craveable snacks have also been added to the menu, such as truffle-infused popcorn and artisan beef jerky.
The Après Ski Lodge is a can’t miss experience but will only be available for a limited time through February 2024. Entry is 21 and up, and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations will not be available. Spots can be secured for larger parties of 5 or more by emailing email@example.com, in addition to group buyouts available for up to 45 guests.
