Located underneath the Mountain Haus near the Covered Bridge in Vail Village, The George is a hidden gem of a bar. It takes a bit of fortitude to navigate the dimly-lit corridor to find the entrance, but once you arrive, it’s worth it. With a longer-than-usual happy hour (3-7PM), The George combines an extensive bar menu with some serious specials like crab legs and steak for $16. With comfy leather couches and portraits of famous “Georges” dotting the walls, The George is a pub with a fervent locals (don’t worry—though they make a look a bit intimidating at first, these folk won’t bite) following and a rising reputation with visitors in the know. Play your cards right (and perhaps buy a round) and you could gain valuable insight into secret spots to explore in Vail.
