The Little Nell’s New Speakeasy is Open for Business


Photo Credit: The Little Nell

The Board Room at The Little Nell is now open for business, having been converted from a traditional meeting space into a speakeasy. This hidden gem in the hotel is discretely set behind a bookshelf with a password required to enter. Once inside, you’ll find a contemporary den complete with an 88″ flat screen TV with 5.1 Klipsch sound system, plush couches, a bar area and regulation size pool table with a custom cover to convert it into a dinner table.  

 This private space is available as a buyout for lunch, après-ski, dinner, or a corporate affair, complete with food and beverage pairings. Upon booking online, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a password to present at The Wine Bar host stand, then given a key and directed to find the space (with assistance as needed, of course).   

Dedicated service is provided by a personal sommelier, and in addition to having access to The Nell’s award-winning wine list, overseen by Wine Director Chris Dunaway, a selection of high-end spirits is available with an emphasis on hand-picked bourbons, scotches and tequilas. The Little Nell has also been fortunate enough to secure a Tanqueray Imperial Shaker, one of only two in the state of Colorado, to prepare Gin Fizzes and a limited selection of cocktails.  A special food menu from Culinary Director Matt Zubrod is offered with favorites such as kampachi crudo; wagyu tartare with polenta chips; truffle fries; burrata, caviar and citrus; caviar tacos and charcuterie. Reservations made outside of 72 hours will have the option for a custom menu designed by our culinary team.  

A talented team stands behind the transformation of the room, led by Chad Yates of Yates Construction & Consulting with Master Craftsman Phil Jolles. R+A Enterprises facilitated the lighting installation, designed by Emily Gordon Harvier of Elumenate Architectural Lighting Design. Lighting features include under-lit bar shelves and programmable LED light strips throughout the space to wash the room in any color desired. Emily Campbell of Go Bella Design & Planning provided the finishing touches on the space, bridging Prohibition scrapwood and Depression glass with celebratory Art Deco design – a transition between two distinct eras. Remnants of lanterns, mismatched pillows and a couple of crow lamps reflect the pulling together of a special place made in secret.    

Just like the crow which symbolizes change and transformation, The Board Room is a transformation of the intimate bar experience. We look forward to creating a unique and personalized experience for you and your group at your next “meeting.”
