There’s something to be said about having a “spot.” A place where you can catch up with friends over cocktails and order “the usual.” Where you can go to unwind, knowing that you’re not just welcomed, but also expected. With the grand opening of The Bar at Shore Lodge, guests will now have another place that’s near and dear to do just that.

Opening its doors on December 15, The Bar is a place where the essence that originally forged McCall’s fiery roots continues to thrive, inspiring handcrafted spirits and provisions served in a stunning setting.

From the moment guests step through Shore Lodge’s front doors they’re greeted by the sight of warm woods and the breathtaking wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling views of Payette Lake. Nestled in its new home just past Shore Lodge’s reception desk, this inviting new social hub creates a sense of nostalgia, exuding warmth and a welcoming atmosphere while adding another layer of charismatic character to an already impressive arrival. The new location means more square footage, so whether celebrating a special occasion for two, or out socializing with friends and family you will always find a seat for all. Once the snow thaws, you can enjoy The Bar’s outdoor patio, which will offer another way to take in the postcard-perfect views. In addition to being the ideal selfie spot, the outdoor patio will provide access to a private dining room which lends itself to those unforgettable special occasion or business dinners.

The Bar isn’t all looks and sentiment. Shore Lodge’s talented mixologists will be serving up expertly crafted cocktails from their signature Huckeltini to classics like the Old Fashion, and must-try concoctions like the Applejack Sazerac. Or, you can keep it simple with your choice from a large selection of wines, beer and cocktails from the full bar.

Those looking for sustenance with their spirits will find that The Bar’s menu is anything but standard “bar food.” From Wild King Salmon Carpaccio and Grilled Andouille Sausage Sliders to Shredded Slow Roasted Duck Quesadillas and Smoked Elk and Butternut Squash Empanadas, this elevated take on bar bites rounds out the full experience of The Bar.

Whether enjoying a drink with friends after a long day at the office or indulging in a quiet evening out with that special someone, The Bar at Shore Lodge will have you feeling right at home.
