Hickory House BBQ

Aspen, Colorado - Suggestions from the Oliver Community

  • Cynthia Pillsbury Says

    On a recent mother-daughter Aspen weekend we sourced some insider-scoop from a summer local…
    Bloomingbirds- unique boots and shoes
    Pitkin Dry Goods- the best, mini-department store-type shop, from distressed cowboys hats, cashmere, perfect dresses and everything in between (golden gooses sneakers included)
    Kalis- Second floor, hard to find, but worth it. Great value for Aspen!

    Food…
    Have a drink (or two) and dessert at the bar at Hotel Jerome, cozy, charming and very historic (ask front desk for the hotel’s infamous timeline along with some Chlorophyll water)
    Meat & Cheese- LOVE this place for lunch, in btw lunch and dinner or dinner. Food and drink is amazing. Get the yummy Mellow Yellow drink…. complete with the French Monk’s recipe.
