Deer Valley Resort and The St. Regis Deer Valley rarely do anything that isn’t first class. Both frequently garner awards for their top-notch customer care and the amenities they provide their guests. Their most recent foray, The Vintage Room, has turned the standard ski-in, ski-out lunch and après-ski experience into an eyepopping, opulent affair where every guest feels like a VIP.
The Vintage Room is The St. Regis Deer Valley’s luxe pop-up lounge. It opens in the winter to serve lunch and après ski right off Deer Valley Resort’s Deer Hollow ski run. The Vintage Room is a chic, 1,600-square-foot heated structure that boasts 360-degree mountain views, vaulted ceilings, a 30-foot wooden bar, and a food menu that features fresh seafood. Live musicians and DJs provide music during the afternoon and there’s a VIP area that takes reservations. Aside from the VIP corner, The Vintage Room is open daily to customers on a first come, first served basis.
Under the direction of Executive Chef Pierson B. Shields and his talented culinary team, The Vintage Room sports a raw bar that offers fresh caviar, lobster rolls, East and West Coast oysters, ceviche, sashimi-style hamachi, huge stone crab claws, tuna tartare, and some hot items like turkey chili, clam chowder, and creamy tomato soup. You can enjoy drinks and fab food in the beautifully appointed indoor space or sit outside on the deck, which has heated seats, a roaring fire pit, and spectacular views of the Wasatch Range.
The Vintage Room partners with New Zealand’s Cloudy Bay Vineyards and France’s Moët & Chandon to offer wines by the glass and bottle, including Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc and Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial Champagne. The bar also serves up beers that have been specially brewed for the St. Regis, including the St. Regis Tipsy Trolley Pilsner and St. Regis Cousin Jack IPA. Creative cocktails like the Rolling Fog, which combines Ron Zacapa rum with ginger and an aromatic bubble that is burst at your table by your server, are also available.
Don’t ski? No problem. The Vintage Room is accessible via a walkway from the St. Regis as well as from the Deer Hollow ski run. Whatever route you take—on skis or by foot — you won’t want to miss a visit to what has clearly become one of Utah’s most unique dining destinations.
