Northstar resort itself has a fairly thin selection of bars and restaurants as most people travel to nearby Truckee, Tahoe Vista or Kings Beach on the North shore of Lake Tahoe. Still, the choices are great ones that deliver a memorable experience. Here are 5 of our favorite spots in the area.Overlook Bar - a great place to relax near the base of the mountain and enjoy some hot cocoa...or several beers.
Petra - another prime slopeside location with an amazing selection of wines and delicious tapas.
Chocolate Bar - this bar and restaurant has a clever name, convenient location and serves just about everything chocolate.
Mellow Fellow - located in nearby Truckee, this pub delivers an excellent selection of beers and games.
Pastime Club - a fun dive-bar in Truckee hosting all the necessities of a great night out with live music, games and beer.
