The Press Room — a speakeasy hidden inside the AC Hotel Greenville — assumed a new identity for the holiday season. Meet: The Après Ski Lodge Bar & Lounge, a new pop-up winter wonderland running through February 2024.

In partnership with champagne house Veuve Clicquot, the concept transports you to a high-end winter resort and ski lodge, capturing an après ski (French for “after skiing”) vibe described as “alpine cabin comfort with a flair for the quirky.”

The “one-of-a-kind” pop-up feels like a members-only club — but don’t worry, there’s no membership required.

The decor

“The vibe is inspired by the legendary memories of friends loosening their boots and reuniting over drinks after an epic day on the slopes,” the AC Hotel describes.

The cozy speakeasy features ski-themed decor as you’re transported to the base of a 14,000-ft slope in the French Alps with a yeti welcoming you as you step inside. Relax by the fireplace as the staff serves you in their knit caps and puffer vests.

Sip on handcrafted cocktails from the limited edition menu. The drinks will have on-theme names like “Yeti or Not, Here We Come” and “Ski Patrol.” Plus, munch on shareable snacks like truffle-infused popcorn and artisan beef jerky as you and your crew recover from the slopes (wink wink).

How to experience this

There aren’t reservations for this experience. It’s first-come, first-served for smaller parties. If your group is 5+ people, email to secure a spot. Pro tip: If you’re looking for a place to host your holiday party, the hotel offers buyout packages that are available now.
