Best part about skiing... the après-skiing.

Problem is: skiing is tough to find right about now.

But not so much the après. Not anymore.

Now that the ski-chalet-themed Kabin has landed just south of Dupont. They’re taking reservations now for an expected soft-opening tomorrow night, pending permitting.

They won’t hit you over the head with said theme—no bearskin rugs or ski poles. But you’ll see a giant mural of a snowboarder when you ascend the dark stairwell, and some virtual snow falling on a display of champagne bottles when you walk in.

And when they show you to your granite table, you’ll be surrounded by charred-wood paneling, rope chandeliers and a mirrored ceiling designed to evoke upside-down mountains. (Also: they have the A/C cranked.)

From there, you know the drill: summon your waitress (she’s in the fur-topped boots) and get her started on bottle service. But first: the house shot—Three Pins, a rare liqueur made from a dozen Alpine herbs.

Then just let the DJ (you’ll find him under the wooden faux ram heads) do his thing—Thursdays it’s ’90s retro, and weekends it’s Top 40, although feel free to make a request.

Foreigner’s “Cold as Ice”—probably out of the question.
