View from the Porch
The Omni Grove Park Inn Asheville NC is one of the most beautiful hotels you will find. The hotel welcomes non-hotel guests to enjoy their restaurants, cocktail lounges and patios. The westerly views overlooking the Asheville skyline are spectacular. We recommend visiting the Grove Park Inn for a drink at sunset. Cocktails range in price from $10 to $15 but it’s the best place in Asheville to watch the sunset, in our opinion.
The Great Hall Bar
The “Great Hall Bar” Cocktail Lounge serves up specialty cocktails, wine by the glass, a good selection of beers and a few appetizers. Cocktails are generally $10 to $15, beers are $6 to $8 and appetizers are $7 to $14. They have live music nightly. Click here for our favorite brewpubs and libation stations.
