Love this place! Old school Colorado Saloon with a very classy and upscale touch. My first stop every time I go to Aspen!

Menu needs to spruce up-its a bit limited but the drinks are still the best! It would be nice to put the old Menu back-less Asian/Fsion influences and more Western American menu-burgers, bbq, steak-this would solidify and create consistency.

Known for it's great apres ski vibe, this bar never lets you down. It is always busy, has great drinks, and above average snacks. The wait staff tries very hard and is always pleasant even when the bar is packed to the rafters.

We stopped here for a drink, after a great meal down the street. We were searching for something that felt real in this frequently unreal little town. We found it!

Aspen's iconic J-Bar (short for "Jerome Bar") remains the town's social hot spot, with its lively yet casual dining atmosphere. Ski bums, socialites, cowboys and luminaries - from members of the Tenth Mountain Division to the late Hunter S.Thompson gather at this authentic bar for an hint of the Old West. Sit down, relax, and enjoy a beer, vintage-inspired cocktails and light dining fare for lunch or dinner. And don't pass on Aspen's best burger.
