Located in downtown Jackson, next door to the legendary ski town’s historical society, the Anvil combines three former motel buildings into a subtle distillation of local culture. Designed by Brooklyn firm Studio Tack, the research and storytelling process was crucial. The lobby feels a bit like a Gold Rush-era general store, albeit one with Wi-Fi and a soundtrack that includes songs by Andrew Bird and Nick Drake, as well as coffee by Snake River Roasters, pastries from Persephone Bakery, and a Woolrich blanket custom-made for the Anvil. The contemporary take on an old-town feel continues into the rooms, which feature beds designed by the firm with Charles P. Rogers, Hedge House side tables and reading chairs, and brass bathroom fixtures from Waterworks. At the hotel’s 85-seat Glorietta Trattoria restaurant—named after the nearby Mount Glory—executive chef Troy Furuta, formerly the sous chef of Pok Pok in Los Angeles, cooks up a seasonal menu of wood-fired Italian dishes as comfort-inducing as the interior itself. The cocktail menu, conceived by the team behind New York’s Death & Co., features experimental options that befit the mountain setting. Managing to be at once low-key and sophisticated, the effort is anything but forced.
