My husband and I loved having drinks at the J-Bar. If you are in Aspen, stopping at this historic drinking hole is a MUST! We didn't eat there, so I can't comment on the food, but the bartender(s) and beer selections are great.

We love old hotels. As retirees a room at the Hotel Jerome is probably not affordable so we decided to have a casual dinner in the bar. The prices in the bar and dining room were no more or less than we find at a nice place back home. The service was superb and the food very good. We sat... More

Stopped in here for a seat at the famous J-bar! It was crowded, but not crazy. We were able to get a seat at the bar. The bartender was excellent. Friendly, attentive and gave good recommendations for drinks. Perfect spot for a pre-dinner cocktail!

My wife and I were told to make sure we stop in and have a drink at the JBar. We were greeted right away by the bar tender who made us feel welcome and at home. The mood was very light and fun. Once we found out the Bar tender was originally from the Boston area we exchanged "Good Will... More

Was in Aspen to hit the mountains for some fall photography...and tried the J Bar based on TA reviews. I hit it at a busy time, there were a couple wedding parties keeping the bartenders busy...but I still got prompt service. Beer selection was a bit sparse, and the prices were steep (but that's typical Aspen...) I tried the duck... More

We stopped here late in the afternoon after walking to visit the John Denver park area which is nearby. Looking at the bar itself will transport you back into the 1800s. The bartender was very friendly and offered suggestions on some of the specialty drinks. We only stayed about a half-hour, just enough time for a refresher and to allow... More

The hotel Jerome was our second stop whilst Hunter Hunting in Aspen. We couldn't afford to stay at the hotel, so JBar was where we spent our time, which is fitting since that is where HST hung, too. This place has all the character hipster speakeasies seek to replicate these days. The authenticity is apparent, and the place is exquisite.... More
