According to The New York Post, the Caribou
Club is the absolute best private club in
America. This is a member’s only private club,
and the membership fee is quite high but the
ambiance is top-notch!
The Caribou Club is located in Aspen,
Colorado on East Hopkins Avenue. The club
is open from 6:30pm until 2am every day, and
you can enjoy dinner and dancing, or lounge in
the Great Room before a roaring fireplace with
a fine cigar. The wine cellar houses over 5000
wines from around the world.
There is more to The Caribou Club than fine
dining and dancing, however. When you enter
the club, you are entering a world of elegance
that can only be experienced here. The walls

is a coat room, where your coat will be taken
from you, and you are made to feel like a very
welcome houseguest. You can then go to the

the choice is yours.
The Caribou Club has only been open for about

Aspen nightlife for the rich and famous and
even for those who are not famous, nor rich,

fees. When you enter the Great Room at The
Caribou Club, you will probably see faces that
you know even if you don’t know these
famous people on a personal level.
You don’t even have to be in Aspen to enjoy the
cuisine offered by The Caribou Club. Your
event can be catered by the club, no matter
how large or small it is, or where it is located.
You can have your event catered anywhere
in the world! Private parties can also be held
at The Caribou Club.

membership for a couple is $10,000. Individual
membership for two people is $3000 for the
first year, and $1000 for each additional year,
paid annually. Family membership for up to five
people costs $4000 per year. A temporary
membership is available for one week. The cost
is $500 and covers one couple. However, during
