Sounds crazy but the hamburger and fries are really, really good. The bar offers top shelf drinks and a great atmosphere for visiting.

Popped into bar at lunchtime for a look, couldn't resist staying for a drink and quick lunch. Service friendly and efficient. Best burger I've had in a while, Duck Rillets good, but best to share. Will visit again this week!

Had drinks and fries here while visiting Aspen on a very snowy cold day. The atmosphere is great, warm and friendly. Staff were friendly and very efficient. The french fries with rosemary were excellent!!! Ok, it is pricey...but this is Aspen.

Several wonderful meat dishes and one of the freshest salads I have ever had. The people watching was wonderful too. During the period from Christamas New Years the people watching in Aspen is great and the... More

Took a look at the Living Room. Cool place to see, but not to stay. Big over sized furniture and it was pretty empty. Afraid we could have fallen asleep there. So, we hung out in Jay Bar. The bartenders were great. Very attentive, friendly and helpful. The people watching was good. Saw a number of groups come in and... More
