All the exhilarating ways to get into the surrounding environment would likely come in second. But somewhere near the top of that list will be all the fun to be had après ________ (fill in the activity … doesn’t have to be only ski!). And a whole lot of that fun can be found in Lake Tahoe bars and pubs. When the sun sinks behind those mountains and the glow covers that lake, it’s _____ time (fill in the blank again … martini, craft beer, margarita … doesn’t have to be Miller!). We play hard here, with hard being relative. South Lake Tahoe bars options take first prize due to the huge variety of them, but your favorite spot might be discovered in any of our towns.

Your Lake Tahoe bar … your choice.
