“Excellent Burger”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

My husband and I had lunch here while visiting Aspen. The service was a little slow at first to greet us and take our drink order. We both got the burger and fries. Both were excellent. We were too stuff to try a dessert. We like the atmosphere of the bar and the comfortable booths. We took a tour of the hotel lobby and the second floor. The hotel had a old charm to it.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere in this bar is great. The decor is top notch and not forgetting HST history while not exploiting it. Food was a gastropub fare with a great burger.

“Meet up Place”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is a great place to meet friends before the night life begins. Bar food is top notch. It's in the heart of Aspen and a quick walk to the Wheeler Opera House and local clubs.

“My favorite bar in Aspen”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Since the remodel the guys are turning this back into a real proper bar with all the requisites. My local since it's couple of blocks from my apartment, highlight for me are decent music and a bunch of local fk heads. It's a decent place. I've never eaten there because I tend to not eat where I drink.
I shouldn't be even telling you this, so I hope you don't ruin what is the best locals bar in Aspen at the moment.

Be nice.

“Great burgers!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

One of our favorite meals while in Aspen. The burgers and fries were fantastic, as was the reuben sandwich. Wonderful atmosphere and good value.
