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.

My wife and I had dinner and drinks at the J-Bar and it was the best dinner we had while in town. Great service, great atmosphere and great food and beer. It's located downstairs of the Hotel Jerome and has a real authentic feel to the entire place. Next time we are in Aspen we will be coming back.

Great bar with awesome service. Excellent bar menu and easy atmosphere. No better place to wait out a blizzard. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.

We come to J-Bar ever year as a family when in town for our ski trip. We sit at the same table and love it every time! The food is incredible, the burgers are among our favorites as well as the edamame. Also love the atmosphere and the great music but most importantly, we come for the great service. It's... More

We loved this place. It's not cheap, but this is Aspen and T-shirts are $30 a piece. I had the Lobster Avocado Chef salad and it was yummy, and my daughter loved the burger. The best part was the triple chocolate cake for dessert. Yummy!!! If I get back to Aspen, I'll be sure to head back here.

The place breaths history and is fairly cheap compared to other bars in Aspen. The Aspen Crud is a must (the milkshake with bourbon that was served during the Prohibition Era) and the place is excellent on game nights. I would recommend having some drinks and dinner at the Living Room next door and ending your night (completely trashed) at... More

A true Aspen spot to stop for atmosphere, people watching and a good cocktail. Be sure to take a photo in front of the large painting over the fireplace in the lobby sit down area.
