The bar offers a hip yet relaxed environment and features "belly up to the bar" counter stools in brown regenerated leather. The writing is literally on the wall with additional text art, "Purely Delicious," which expresses a contemporary, whimsical quality. An open kitchen establishes the casual atmosphere of the dining room, while the food and wine reveal the sophisticated, seasonal offerings that underlie the interior milieu. Homemade jams and syrups in traditional mason jars line the rear service area shelves, playing double duty as backlit interior accents.

The lounge area is an ideal place to wait for a table or enjoy cocktails and snacks après ski. Under-mount lighting on the bar casts an intimate glow.

The entry vestibule features a custom-designed console table fabricated from Douglas fir wood slabs, powder-coated steel in bright red, and handblown glass.

It’s "Girls! Girls!" on pin-up girl wallpaper in the whimsical yet modern restroom. A cherry red laminate sink provides a pop of color against the black and white newspaper print backdrop.
