The Handle Bar was made for skiers, mountain bikers, and rabble-rousers sporting a penchant for superb pub fare and drink. We want you to kick back with us at THE HANDLE BAR in the majestic Teton Village. Whether on the patio enjoying our Wild Side Ale, the first custom English-style ale brewed in collaboration with the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole and award-winning Snake River Brewery, or inside for an après ski drink and meal in the winter, you’ll find something to treat yourself after a long day of sports. Let your muscles relax as you soak in our unbeatable views complemented by our classic pub grub with a modern, regional twist, brought to you by Executive Chef Topher Strittmatter.
Signature favorites the Jackson Hole Elk Chili, incredible steaks and an American and international beer, libations, and wine list that goes on for days. Join us for a recovery experience you won’t forget.
“The Handle Bar, which is helmed by celebrity chef Michael Mina, is arguably the place to be for aprés,” – Forbes
“Speaking of après, come 2:30 p.m., crowds at the hotel’s Handle Bar spill out onto the resort’s patio—it’s one of the liveliest spots to unwind with a beer and pub fare after a day on the slopes. ” – Goop
