One of my favorite fun spots is the Sky Lodge in Park City. Now, it's about to get even funner. This Thursday, December 16th, SkyBlue opens to the public at the Sky Lodge, featuring a special performance by Joy & Eric from 7:15 to 10 PM. SkyBlue features a new rooftop lounge concept, small plate dining and a cigar menu -- “grown-up treats to sip, savor and smoke,” including a full menu of wines, beers and mixed cocktails, ranging from $5 beers on the one hand, to Opus One and Cristal on the other. All of these can be enjoyed around the rooftop fire pits.
I got a peak at the new SkyBlue and it's terrific: a posh indoor lounge with signature glowing blue bar, comfortable lounge seating, and beautiful views of Main Street and the surrounding mountains. The expansive outdoor rooftop terrace features a range of seating areas, a deck and floor heating system, as well as four toasty fire pits.
Fresh seafood from the SkyBlue raw bar includes west coast oysters, King crab legs, Florida stone crab claws and shrimp cocktail. Small plates include tuna tartare, charcuterie and blue cheese fondue. A selection of hand-rolled cigars is also offered for guests to enjoy around the outdoor fire pits. And, speaking of those fire pits, this is really cool: patrons can enjoy the outdoor nightlife at SkyBlue in hooded, “monk-style” robes and furry wraps for warmth during the winter months. Commenting on the new outdoor lounge concept at SkyBlue, Sky Lodge general manager Eric Clark said, “We’ve been watching this trend from our sister hotel in New York City with interest, and realized that we have the perfect venue for it right here in Park City. People love to play here in the outdoors by day … and it’s fun to be outside in the rooftop playing at night, too.”
SkyBlue will be open daily from 3:30 PM to 11:00 PM. For more information, call 435-658-2500.
