Been here twice, first time I got the chicken wings and they were awesome! Went back again craving them and they took them off the menu?? Not a good move as they really were special. Food was good the second time, but missed those wings.

This is one of those Aspen locations that you really need to see on your trip. The J Bar is the moderate version of Hotel Jerome's eating establishments. Service was attentive, but not particularly speedy. The menu is limited, and eclectic. The short-rib tacos and hamburgers were delish!

The Jerome Hotel is a treat to walk around and experience what a fine hotel from the 1800 was like. The bar is busy and cozy and lots of fun. We had a house burger and beef rib tacos and they were both really good but the burger was exceptional! We had a fun waiter and a great all around... More

Had my first drink here many moons ago. And although remodeled the history is still felt in the wall of the Jbar. Miss the old furnishings, and old bartenders. But still love it, maybe cause I met my husband in this bar 26 years ago!

Almost everything at the Jerome is amazing. The lobby bar, the restaurant. But my wife's and mine favourite is the J Bar. Unparalleled ambiance and old world charm, The cocktails are made and served with second to none friendliness and enthusiasm. The burgers taste as good !

Very nice relaxing bar to have a drink with friends. Very attentive staff and very social place to bump into friends! Only went once on this visit but have been many times on previous trips and it's always been good!

Hotel bar is cozy and nice with old world charm. There were 6 of us and we hovered around a 4 person high cocktail table. Only 4 were having alcohol which seemed to piss off the waiter ( hence 4 vs 5 stars)- anyway, good gin martinis with local gin - wine by the glass extremely overpriced but you are... More

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.
