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.

Beautiful old world atmosphere new world mixologist

Stopped in for a drink, and loved the cocktail list. I had the bourbon Manhattan J Bar style, and it was the best I've ever had! Loved the bartenders, and the atmosphere as well!

They have light fare which includes burger, artichoke and spinach dip, barbequed chicken salad and twice pulled pork sandwich. The Hotel is historic and quaint and of... More

Drinks and service were good. Hamburger was okay. They have the original bar from the 1800's. A must see.

My parents meet in aspen some 30 odd years ago and named myself Jerome after the hotel... More

My wife and I had drinks here two evenings a row. Loved the decor, loved the service, loved the drinks and loved the prices! Yes, $10 for a Manhattan and $12 for a Mojito. Back in Boston a few days later, we paid $20 for the Manhattan and $22 for a Martini!
