We were seriously underwhelmed by this place, it is supposed to be super fun and stylish and a real party atmosphere. Frankly they get it wrong with rules that are draconian and staff that that think they are more important than the guests! I would strongly recommend that they head to the Alps to see how to do what they... More

The 2 PM seating is probably the hardest reservation to get in Aspen and I tell my friends that if they are considering a trip to Aspen, before you book your flights or vacation rental, reserve a table at Cloud 9! It reminds me of skiing in Europe and Cloud 9 offers a fun lunch experience that I have not... More

Yes, people really get up and dance on benches and tables and spray champagne around the room! We had heard about all this, but didn't really believe it. It started as a great lunch - salmon was delicious - and suddenly turned into a party with thumpin' music and lots of bubbly flowing. It gets very warm in there and... More

Eating lunch at Cloud Nine is an experience not to be missed. The food is excellent and the service wonderful. Get there for the later seating and it becomes a party.

This place is hard to rate because it is basically a giant champagne spraying party but they make you order a bunch of food. The best part of the menu is the fondu dishes but unfortunately the table next to us was a little rambunctious and started the champagne spraying a little early so unless you like champagne flavored everything...

We were told about this place by locals. Especially the afternoon session starting at 3pm where people spray others with champagne.. Initially we did not believe it, but hell yeah, it was soooo true. The crowd gets crazy, the emotions go high up, the music (mostly 80's and 90's) makes you sing along and it gets the party going. You... More

A minute into the cat ride that first double black flings the high side folks into the low side and you realize you're in for quite an adventure. You'd pay for the cat ride by itself but the surprise of a fine French restaurant along with the wine and service waiting at the top is icing on the cake. This... More

The ten of us climbed into the back of the Snow cat and ascended to Cloud 9. It was an interesting start to a fun evening. Plenty of effort made to present the food well and the explanations from the servers were on point. A few small inconsistencies with plating ?? Same dish should look pretty much the same. An...

Great Little Place, it gets really crowded and noisy but that's the beauty of it, Fondue and Raclette delicious. Very expensive but it's definitely a must when visiting Aspen. We were lucky to get in without a Reservation. Excellent Service.

We read about this restaurent in a European travel magazine and thought it would be a good combination of great food and crazy party. And it is. Excellent kitchen, attentive service, and all guests certainly come for a good time. Dont miss it when you are in Aspen, especially when you are European and used to after-ski parties in St.Anton,...
