The Four Seasons in Palo Alto has created a gorgeous pop-up winter wonderland called Après Village, which is the ultimate holiday escape. Whether you’re looking for awesome photo ops, a festive party, amazing food, or fireside movies, this is definitely worth putting on your list!
Some of the best attractions at Après Village include semi-private chalets with roaring fireplaces, flat-screen TVs, and blankets; a holiday sweet shop with house-made donut holes from Pastry Chef Guillermo Soto; and a giant snow globe and life-size sleigh for endless photo ops. And of course, don’t forget to take a spin on the Après skate rink from Friday-Sunday! The outdoor synthetic rink is the first of its kind in Silicon Valley.
In addition to these seasonal attractions, you can also step up your visit with a festive outdoor meal in style. Make reservations for boozy brunches and bountiful feasts featuring Gruyère cheese and champagne fondue, poutine, gourmet s’mores with house-made graham crackers, and much more. Some standouts include the Thanksgiving feast and Festive Dining.
Find Palo Alto’s Four Seasons at 2050 University Ave in East Palo Alto. Après Village will be open until February 25, 2023, so you have plenty of time to plan your ultimate winter escape!
