Travel: J-Bar at the Jerome Hotel
J-Bar at the Jerome Hotel | Aspen, CO
Judged by the legacy of its customers alone, the J-Bar ranks as one of the best après spots in the country. Everyone from Hollywood elite to members of the Tenth Mountain Division and local ski bums and have shouldered up to its bar or snagged one of the coveted window-side tables. Hunter S. Thompson routinely held court here—which is reason enough to go Gonzo while hiking, biking, or running, and then retire here for a few drinks. The bar—like the Jerome Hotel, where it sits to the left of the lobby as you walk in—dates back more than 100 years, and practically oozes with comfortable old-west authenticity. Expect a few good Colorado craft beers, a few more vintage cocktails like the Grapefruit Gatsby, and more than a few good bar food options. And be prepared for random conversations from all walks of life, and to likely lose track of time. Of course you could just check into the Jerome Hotel at any point. But the rooms there ain’t cheap. Thankfully, the drinks at the J-Bar won’t break the bank.
