They're really fixated on the specialness of their cocktails. But as far as taste goes, mediocre. The bartender was too full of himself. Food was ok.

This bar, located in the historic Wheeler Opera House, has a great location right on the park in Aspen. We walked in for drinks and were seated quickly in the bar. Service was quick, efficient, and friendly, even though they were very busy on this holiday evening. We initially ordered drinks and watched as the bartender was preparing specialty drinks... More

We made dinner reservations, but decided to leave after appetizers. The room looks cool, but it is extremely loud and conversation is difficult. The server had a poor understanding of the menu additions and the liquor the restaturant carried. The two of us had a drink a piece and two appetizers. The tab---$70!!! The martini was approximately 3 oz and... More

My wife and I were in Aspen in June celebrating her birthday. It was an absolute treat to eat at Justice Snow's. Based on the decor, we were expecting typical mediocre bar food i.e. greasy potato skins, cheese laden taco chips and the like. But Oh, we were so wrong. We found a surprisingly simple menu with something for everyone.... More

Meal: outstanding. Small portions. Prices: $$, but expected. Atmosphere: Loved the historical aspect. Would love to see more of the property renovated and used. Did not care for music choice. Drinks: very nice. Beers: very nice also. Wait staff: laid back, non-attentive. I didn't like being told it was the best restaurant in Aspen multiple times.

This place is great. The owners have done a beautiful job or remodeling this 120 year old space. When you walk in you can feel the energy in the bar area that is like an updated version of the TV show, "Friends", just more upscale and younger crowd. The food is as excellent as the decor. Great drink specials every... More

We went in for cocktails at 9:30pm. The bar was full but all but 3 tables were empty. The host didn't offer a table but told us we could stand at the bar and wait for something to open up. We were ignored by the bartenders (all 3 of them) until we sat down at the bar. I ordered. No... More

Justice Snow's is the perfect combination of a hip downtown Aspen restaurant in an historic space with a landmark location in the Wheeler Opera House building, originally constructed in 1889. We serve fresh, creative food, handcrafted cocktails, and incredible, affordable wines in an imitable atmosphere. Lunch and dinner menus at Justice Snow's are developed seasonally by Executive Chef Jonathan Leichliter. The menus feature inventive dishes that focus on locally sourced ingredients. Weekend brunch offers sweet and savory dishes with unexpected twists. The bar at Justice Snow's serves up hand-crafted cocktails made with rare spirits, fresh components, and limitless creativity. While we have the most extensive cocktail program west of the Mississippi, our incredible bar staff welcomes the opportunity to custom-craft drinks to suit our guests' personal tastes.
