The J-Bar at the Hotel Jerome
Address: 330 E Main St, Aspen Hotel Jerome
The J-Bar, short for “Jerome Bar,” has been the local hot-spot in Aspen for decades. It combines the fervor of the Old West with a comfortable and modern day ambiance, while maintaining the iconic bar quality that has made it famous for years. Visitors will enjoy the relaxed social environment while partaking in one of the area’s best bars. Join in on trivia games and learn a little local history while relaxing after a day on the slopes.
What They’re Known for: The J-Bar is known for their experience and their booze. The environment is relaxed and yet energetic, making it a perfect place to catch up with old friends and new ones over a few drinks. Rather than being stuffy, as with many gourmet places, the J-Bar offers plenty of fun with trivia and history that are sure to start fun conversations. The bar is the focus, so be sure to grab a creative cocktail, local beer, or a choice from their extensive wine list while there.
What to Watch for: Because the J-Bar focuses on the social experience and booze, the food itself is standard American fare, such as burgers, fries, omelets and salads. The quality is still there, but don’t expect to find “something unique and different.” But if you’re looking for something simple to munch on while hanging out with friends, the J-Bar is a great choice.
