We wound up at the J-Bar accidentally, as it was pouring out and our first three restaurant visit attempts were all closed. We lucked out, though! The bar is full of history and old photos cover the walls. Make sure to look at the tin ceiling and match the ancient photos to the current bar.
The food was okay; nothing spectacular. The red pepper soup is a great choice as an appetizer, as it was quite tasty. Don't bother with the caesar salad. It was too cold to try the signature drink, but a few fellow patrons gave it a shot and loved it (the "Aspen Crud" I believe it's called).
Don't sit at the tables by the front windows unless it's very hot outside. They blast frigid air at your legs and there's nothing the poor wait staff can do about it -- they try to cover the vents with menus but it's not particularly effective.
Service was great, food was good, and it was a neat place to be.
