Stopped at the J bar for lunch. We all had the burgers. Can't say they were the best j ever had, but they were good. Little pricey especially if you want to add things to the burger.

One of a kind. The Jerome is a must while in Aspen. It's incredibly charming. The staff was great. The building is amazing. The food, drink, and experience was amazing. It's the first place that I'll go next time I'm in Aspen.

Nice atmosphere and exceptional service! I didn't especially want to leave the hotel, so I thought I would check out the J-Bar. It was a comfy gathering spot with a good vibe, good conversation and great food!

Stopped in for a couple of glasses of wine after strolling around Aspen one afternoon. My husband used to frequent this bar during ski trips in the '80's - he says it's a bit more subdued now than "back in the day".... LOL. The ambience is charming and our bartender was attentive and cordial. We had a good time and... More

We stopped in here after the front door man gave treats to our dogs when I was walking them back from a walk on the Rio Grande Trail. No, we didn't take the dogs with us, but appreciated the customer service outside and it was just as great inside! What an absolutely incredible venue - you really feel like you've... More

From the minute you walk in the hotel you can feel the history. Great decor and cozy, classy bar. Prices were reasonable for Aspen prices and the tacos were amazing. Our waitress Liz was really sweet and attentive and gave us lots of ideas of places to try while visiting Aspen. Must stop place while in Aspen.

The J Bar at Hotel Jerome is a charming little spot with loads of history. The staff is very friendly and love to tell you about the town of Aspen. From what I've heard, not so very long ago, they would tie horses up right in front of the hotel. Beautiful hotel lobby.

Warm atmosphere in a property located in downtown Aspen. The J bar is classic "old school" with a great bartender and wine & liquor selections that will keep you coming back.

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.
