On 2 different days we stopped for a quick lunch between typical winter activities. J-Bar in the old Jerome Hotel has an old yet updated Victorian ambiance. The also-updated pub food was both delicious and innovative. I recommend for drinks or casual food--and prepare to pay "Aspen" prices.

We all tried specials of the evening and thought they all were stand alone solid. Service was great, we had a large party with round table which was awesome. Solid place to hit in Aspen, lounge is a can't miss experience. Two thumbs up.

A friendly pub, just like everywhere here, but good food and great Blue Moon on tap. We called in here while having a break from skiing. Lots of historical memorabilia ...ask the bar man to show you the drawer with all the signatures from the bar men who have worked there for over a year. Dates from 1900's.

Very good food in an refurbished Old West hotel. Makes you feel like your eating in an original saloon but with really solid food. Really big windows that look out onto the street/ mountain. Very good ambiance and service.

This is a great building, with so much history. Choose from a large variety of food, from wings to lobster. Very popular for lunch, dinner, and after dinner drinks.

We went to J Bar with another couple for dinner. This place gets it. We were offered to grab a drink from the bar and sit in the lobby around the fireplace while we waited for a table.

Great ambience. Beautifully restored hotel. The cocktails were not so nice and very expensive. Service was good. A must visit!

The burgers are fantastic and the other choices are also good. There is a limited selection of beer but it is acceptable. It is always our first stop after arriving in Aspen!

We were staying at the Hotel Jerome during the holiday week and spent every night at the J Bar! Great atmosphere, great drinks, great service (we love Louise) great burgers, should I go on. Whilst you are in Aspen you MUST try the J Bar, you will love it! Looking forward to returning
