If spending a day touring Aspen, worth the time to stop in. Located in the Hotel Jerome which has been renovated, but still has that old time feel - the front desk still has a wall of cubbies to keep room keys in - no mag stripe cards here! Had the espresso crud at the bar - was just "OK",... More

Hotel Jerome at 330 East Main Street isn't the ritziest hotel in the ritzy resort town of Aspen, Colorado. But the Hotel Jerome's J-Bar, short for Jerome Bar, has been Aspen's favorite watering hole since 1889. It is Aspen's social hot spot, the best bar in town. Ski bums, socialites, celebrities and cowboys gather at this authentic bar for a... More

Sorry, just found this place overpriced and snooty. The staff is not snooty, but the basic image of the place is pretentious. Many people like this sort of thing, so if that's you, you might like Hotel Jerome.

We came here specifically for the "famous" burger and it did not disappoint! The burger had a delightful grilled flavor and was juicy and tender. The hotel itself is beautiful, and the staff were eager to point out highlights. At lunch, the bar was very busy so service was a bit slow. Still, well worth the trip.

We didn't eat at J-Bar, saved that for another visit, but we stopped in for a couple of drinks. While the hotel is fancy with a capital F, and well over $1,000/night during ski season, the J-Bar is accommodating to all. The bartenders are super nice, which we found to be true of everywhere we visited in Aspen. It's famous... More

Nice old hotel and bar. Great bartenders that know what they are doing. Good location on main street. Good food served as well. A little dark and private setting the way I like it.

Stopped in for a bite to eat and drinks. We knew that this was part of the famous Hotel Jerome and wanted to take a look. What a charming place! Not very big but very cozy with a friendly staff. Had a few cold beers and a burger which was very good! We enjoyed taking in the atmosphere in the... More

We wanted to stop by the Hotel Jerome for a drink in their fabulous Living Room. We checked out the J Bar and knew we had to come back and have lunch. Later that week we went to the J Bar for lunch and it was fabulous. Definitely a must lunch place. I wish we would have tried it earlier... More
