Mammoth — Apres-ski and nightlife
Lively apres-ski gets under way across the parking lot from the Main Lodge at the Yodler. At the Canyon Lodge base area, try Grizzly’s outdoor bar and babecue. Roberto’s upstairs bar in town is a popular apres-ski hangout; enjoy cool margaritas and four-dollar tacos. At Sherwin’s, at Sierra Meadows Ranch, there’s live entertainment most weekends. Entertainment is also at Mammoth Mountain Inn’s Dry Creek Bar.
Mammoth’s longtime meet market (you may meet someone whose parents used to party hardy here in their younger days) is Whiskey Creek, which serves six microbrews. There’s plenty of nighttime hoopla at Grumpy’s, with five giant-screen TVs, pool, foosball, inexpensive chili and burgers. Visiting Brits like this place, and also hang out at the Clock Tower Cellar at the Alpenhof Lodge. For casual beer and pool, try The Tap on Main Street.
Lakanuki is a tiki-style bar that gets everyone up dancing and Henessey’s is an Irish bar with a nice outdoor patio. Dublin’s is a happening Irish bar and next door Fever nightclub is the “see and be seen” place to be.
