Apres Ski Festival at Eataly
Jan 24 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Step inside a cheerful Italian ski resort during Eataly’s popular Après Ski Festival Weekly Winter Happy Hour

Modeled after indulgent post-skiing festivities in Italy (essentially a lot of eating and drinking!), Après Ski is the perfect after-work or pre-dinner activity—essentially your go-to winter happy hour.

Festival-goers can sip beer, Italian wine, and other cold-weather favorites, such as vin brulé (a warm mulled wine from Piemonte). The comforting food is inspired by Italian Alps, including warm polenta, rustic housemade sausage, and savory cheese and meat pairings. And for dessert? They’ve got plenty of cannoli to satisfy your sweet tooth!

Escape the freezing streets, mingle with friends, jam out to a live DJ, and feast on seasonal Italian favorites at our cozy winter retreat!


Find the fun on the second-floor mezzanine, just past the escalators at the Boylston Street doors. Après Ski Festival will be on every Thursday from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Save time and ensure your spot by getting tickets in advance!
