Anvil Hotel, a new 49-room property in downtown Jackson Hole, is actually a renovation of two buildings originally constructed as a motel in the 1950s. The hotel’s lobby functions as both a café and mercantile curated by high-end outdoor retailer, Westerlind. The hotel’s restaurant, Glorietta Trattoria, is named after Jackson’s nearby Mount Glory and located a short walk from the lobby on Glenwood Street. The restaurant features seasonally rotating menus centered around modern rustic woodfired Italian cuisine. Glorietta Trattoria seats 85 and an additional 40 on the patio.

Z BAR, the globally inspired cocktail lounge atop The Peninsula overlooking Michigan Avenue, offers customized batch cocktails for groups in an upscale, but relaxed atmosphere. The individual responsible for dreaming up and preparing these communal beverages is Vlad Novikov, who’s official title is director of cocktails and culture. Novikov’s travels frequently inform his mixology.

Groups can enjoy wine, cheese and crackers or their own picnic dinner while enjoying the alpenglow.
