The Coolest Mountaintop Bar East of the Rockies

Presents a Summer of Live Music

Beech Mountain Ski Resort will open up its beautiful summit in the summer of 2017 for scenic lift rides, a unique 18-hole disc golf course, downhill mountain biking and more on the 27th of May.

And, for those wanting to be surrounded by spectacular panoramic vistas while enjoying drink, food and live music, our high-altitude skybar 5506’ is located on the Peak of Beech Mountain and is only a scenic lift ride away.

The top of Beech Mountain features some of the most beautiful views in all of the North Carolina High Country and the eastern United States. From 5506’, you can see Mount Rogers and Whitetop Mountain in Virginia, and on a clear day you can even see Pilot Mountain. Because of such natural beauty, Wine Enthusiast magazine listed 5506’ as one of their “8 Sizzling Ski Resort Bars in America”.

Named after the height of Beech Mountain, which is 5506 feet at its zenith, 5506’will be providing a fine array of live music in the coming months to help bring an afternoon of food and drink to life on a cool summer’s day.

Open on Thursdays from 12 to 6 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning on May 27, a $10 round trip ski lift ticket will get you to what is easily the most spectacular mountaintop bar east of the Mississippi River – 5506’.
