The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain takes a lot of pride in perfectly crafted drinks — this is the resort where a guided sunset hike culminates with a sundowner cocktail — and as such, there are plenty of places to enjoy happy hour or a nightcap. Signature restaurant CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar is, as its name suggests, a destination for foodies and wine lovers alike, with Friday wine experiences led by CORE’s sommelier. CORE also has a bar where you can order a drink before dinner. Lobby lounge Ignite is the perfect spot for a signature cocktail by an outdoor fire pit; it features a sushi bar and sake expert Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
Though not exclusively a bar, Cayton’s Burger Bistro at the Five-Star hotel is the place for local craft beer, especially during its 3 p.m. happy hour when the bar menu and adult shakes come out. And when you have a yen for tequila, head to Turquesa Latin Grill. Set on the resort’s pools, it specializes in margaritas and premium tequilas, and has its own tequila butler to lead tastings.
