J-Bar, Aspen


The J-Bar in the Hotel Jerome is an iconic, circa-1889 Aspen mainstay for locals and tourists alike.  The food is elevated pub grub like short rib tacos, a Maine lobster Cobb salad and a signature burger while the drinks are as old west or as NYC as you want to get.  The space is… well, handsome with an old West charm of brown leather chairs, dark wood, copper hardware, stamped tin ceilings and elegant crystal chandeliers.  The people are always interesting and the staff both skilled and welcoming.  The J-Bar has a warmth and a comfort of days gone by with a casual western class that is hard to beat.


Aspen’s iconic J-Bar (short for “Jerome Bar”) remains the town’s social hot spot, with its lively yet casual 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 a hint of the Old West. Sit down, relax and enjoy a beer, vintage-inspired cocktail and light dining fare at the best bar in Aspen. Open daily from 11:30am to 1am.
