Located in the venerable Stratton Base Lodge, Grizzly’s is home to the best après-ski scene in the area. The two-story facility was tired and worn and needed a complete refresh, so Stratton came to us with a goal of remodeling and updating the entire base lodge while staying true to the history of the resort.
Our challenge was to update Grizzly’s without taking away from its best feature – the view. To do so, we built a stunning new island bar in the center of the room, with a custom cast concrete bar top. A timber-framed canopy over the bar added intimacy without blocking sight lines. Finishes throughout were upgraded using rough-cut oak and corrugated steel paneling. Downstairs, we created an entirely new cafeteria as part of a complete overhaul of the kitchen.
The project was a great success. Seating capacity was doubled and the new look has given Grizzly’s a bold new life.
