Expected more than a bread bun n a meat patty. And the worst margaritas I have ever had. Service was good.

Cannot say enough good things about this place. It’s warm and cozy with a fireplace and cowboy decor. The staff is the best!! We always come here a couple times while we are in Aspen. Super romantic and relaxing.

Wow! What a scene. Gorgeous bar. Fur covered chair and animal hide covered stools. Animal heads adorn this wealthy mountain town retreat. And the people! Everyone is beautiful and/or chic. The cocktails are excellent and creative. The bartenders are masters at dealing with demanding clientele...More

Tvs on walls, pub atmosphere - you should order the lobster salad as it’s about the healthiest thing I ate while in aspen. Tip - If you need the bathroom it’s downstairs so go in adjoining hotel instead - food is very good

We had a really good time twice this past week at the J Bar. The wok charred spicy edame with shishito peppers were excellent. The quinoa-lentil veggie burger was very tasty. The ambiance was fun and lively. Check out trivia nights on Tuesdays!! Be sure...More

Menu and setting better for a comfortable dining experience than the bar. Surprisingly quiet for such good food.

It's a beautiful old hotel and located on Main Street. But the cheapest glass of chardonnay was $22.

Fun spot to stop in and have a drink. It's conveniently located. We always just walk because sometimes the parking around town can be challenging .Always good... A classic in Aspen!

Our aspen getaway wasn’t complete without a visit to the J Bar! We had the edamame and drinks during a break from the cold. Attentive staff, great atmosphere I highly suggest a visit

Great old Aspen atmosphere in the historic and elegant Hotel Jerome. Try a drink called The Paper Plane. You will be flying and love this mixology creation.
