The coolest mountaintop bar east of the Rockies is the place to catch live music every Saturday between June 3 and Sept. 4. The resort’s summer music series combines great bands, cool beverages and spectacular panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Because of such natural beauty, Wine Enthusiast magazine included the 5506’ Skybar on its list of “8 Sizzling Ski Resort Bars in America”. Concerts start at 2:30 p.m. each Saturday, weather permitting.
Cost is $10 to ride the chairlift. The concerts themselves are free.

Andrew and the Rats have been sharing the stage with national acts such as Sonny Landreth, Big Sams Funky Nation and Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds and been featured at staple music festivals such as Bristol Rythym and Roots, Columbia Blues Festival, Awendawe Green and Asheville Barnaroo.
