Open October 27th – mid-January
What do neon-colored ski outfits, a life–size yeti and thematic food, drinks, and décor all have in common? Each of these will be heavily on display at Kimpton Shorebreak Resort’s new winter pop-up bar, Pier Summit Ski Lodge – set to become one of the season’s most buzzed about dining and drinking destinations with distinctive eighties ski culture decor brought to life by Social Society and creative culinary offerings developed by Executive Chef Gilbert Laurie.
Upon entry to the Pier Summit Ski Lodge, guests will experience an immediate departure from Surf City USA and be transported to a decade of the past. Neon-hued décor and lighting complimented by kitschy eighties trademarks will fill the space while servers, outfitted in retro one-piece ski outfits, will present menu items showcased through vintage viewfinders.
To provide guests with an authentic winter chalet dining experience complete with European fare, a comfort food centric menu will feature dishes like the West Slope Rösti with fried grated potatoes, warm gruyere, caramelized onions, chive and dill crème fraiche and the Fireside Fondue for Two showcasing both sweet and savory options.
Pier Summit Ski Lodge’s beverage menu, however, is the real star of the show with a selection of affectionately named craft cocktails served up in experiential ways. Guests can choose to imbibe in the Feeling Nippy, a frozen beverage featuring notes of berry, lemon and ginger served up in a glass made of ice, Your Mom’s Mulled Wine sipped from vintage mugs, or Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow served up in a classic Snoopy snow cone machine.
