WHAT TRIP ADVISOR PATRONS ARE SAYING

Great band line up, fun environment, and good sound system. Shakedown is one of two of my favorite bars in Vail because of the live music. It is not fancy, but it’s is fun. The dance floor was packed last night..

We have been skiing many times but this place was the Best après ski place I have been to. Are there nicer places in Vail, yes, are there better alcohol deals yes. But if you want to drink, singalong to great music and get a little crazy this place fits the bill.
