Classic old style bar in the historic Sun Valley Lodge. You can imagine Averell Harriman and Ernest Hemingway sitting on the stool next to you listening to Jazz.

The Duchin is a great place, our only issue - it commonly overflows . No tables, no room at the bar, and the nearby lobby is crammed.

A guy named Ian was working at the bar and he mostly ignored us, though he conversed deeply with one or two other parties. We had to almost beg for drinks, and though I'm sure he thought he was funny, he came across as very rude.

Stopped by on our annual trip to SV. Oh my what a sad loss. The old Duchin Room was one of the best bars in the world. The new one is inspired by Marriott lobbies everywhere. What an odd business decision. In the past we would have to arrive by 4:30 to get a table. The revenue must be a... More

We are staying not to far from the lounge and figured we would stop in and take a look at the lodge. While here we decided to stay for a couple of afternoon drinks after skiing. It is a lovely bar/lounge atmosphere. Good for friends hanging and and family as well. Come on by and check it out if you... More

Had an Apre ski snack and wine in the lounge just recently. The remodel completed about a year ago is fantastic. The whole lodge went through a complete remodel as well. Visited the Hemingway suite with a friend who was staying there, and WOW. The Duchin room doesn't always serve appetizers in the lounge, but you might get lucky if... More

Remodeled but didn't really change the atmosphere. This place is for middle age and older folks who like to sit around. This place could be fantastic and rockin if they would just liven it up. Get a DL, play current music, then younger peeps would flock.

Enjoyed piano performance very much. Ate lightly: green bean tempura that was substantial. Decor doesn't fit though with off kilter art and lamps.

Nice place for a drink and the food was terrific! Such a great place, the decor is lovely and the setting is perfect. They have a nice selection. Try the crab cakes or the tempura green beans. Weather permitting enjoy the outdoor seating and watch the ice skaters!

They should have let it the same. Now it just feels like another hotel lounge. Before it had such ambiance, perfect for the lodge. We attended a conference. In years past after the meetings, the Duchin was packed with fun people and great conversation.....this time it was empty after each day's meetings. People just aren't loving the changes they made...
