Description: 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.

“Accommodating Staff”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

High energy vibe, great atmosphere and thoughtful, service oriented team of servers! Expensive, for lunch; some would say it is Aspen! This historic bar is part of the Jerome Hotel, a beautifully restored and maintained historic property. Highly recommend a visit f to the bar and tour of the building led by the Aspen Historical Society staf if you can catch one.

“The bar is seeped in history”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

While sitting at the bar, we enjoyed a burger and The Aspen Crud (the crud was kind of pricey but worth it once to check it off your bucket list). I'd recommend sitting at the bar, getting to chit chat with the bartenders and watch sports on multiple TVs, and perhaps listening in on your neighbors who might be locals so you can get some flavor for the town.

“Nice atmosphere for a drink, slow service”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

The J-Bar is a pretty,small bar in a historic hotel in Downtown Aspen. It's a nice place to stop for a drink. Not earth shattering, but comfortable.

We didn't order any food, but the burgers looked good.

“Great food and atmosphere”

We have never been disappointed when we eat here. The portions are huge, service is excellent and the food is incredible. The hotel lobby is so charming to see and we just love the history of the hotel.
