Once upon a time, there was a quaint restaurant at the top of the Heavenly Tram called Gunbarrel Grill. The Napa inspired cuisine was light and fresh, while the upscale service was attentive and accommodating.
But alas, it turns out that most skiers and riders are looking for something just a little more high energy during their lunch break. You may scratch your head and ask yourself why. But more likely, you are probably saying to yourself, duh!
That’s exactly what we said when we developed the new sports bar concept that is replacing Gunbarrel Grill this season. Located inside the Lakeview Lodge at the top of the tram, this new sports bar is well worth the effort.
First, let’s talk about the beer selection. Because everyone knows a great sports bar has a ton of different beers. And I don’t mean a ton of the light kind. I mean microbrews. 97 varieties to be exact. That’s right, a different microbrew for every trail we have on our mountain.
Next, we have to talk about the burgers. Because everyone knows a great sports bar has big, juicy, get-all-over-your-hands-and-face burgers. Our custom, made-to-order burgers let you choose your meat, your cheese, your toppings, your bread. You name it, we can probably make it because with over 250,000 combinations, there are a lot of choices.
Finally, we have to talk about the views. And I don’t just mean the lake views. Although those are the best on the mountain with 280 degree vistas of Lake Tahoe. I also mean the views of the big game. With TV’s throughout the restaurant and the biggest games always on, you can count on catching up on your favorite team’s performance.
So, what is the name of this awesome new restaurant you ask? Well, that is the problem. Even though the concept is super clear, we just can’t seem to come up with a name that does it justice. So we are hoping you can help. If you have a good idea, share it here and we just might pick your name.
