A quiet, sophisticated, and historic bar. Located in the beautiful Hotel Jerome and favorite for many years.
Slopeside in Aspen, The Tavern is a big draw for catching afternoon rays as the lifts start to close. If you dont find what you want there, the crowd spreads out to The Terrace Room Bar at the Little Nell Hotel, Mezzaluna, 39 Degrees at the SKY Hotel, Little Annies, Cooper Street Pier, the noisy and crowded J-Bar (Jack Nicholsons hangout at the Jerome) and the Red Onion. Apres-ski comes in all varieties here, from The Cantina, with its very happy hour (have a margarita in the compadre size), to the quiet and genteel Hotel Jerome Library Bar.
At night, the music and dance beat begin to take over. Earlier in the evening, the high-energy place to find out whos in town is Mezzaluna with its brassy horseshoe-shaped bar. Its a good singles bar and gives you the best in upscale people-watching. The Shadow Mountain Lounge at the St. Regis has live music. The Little Nell bar and Syzygy have jazz. DJs rule at Bar Aspen, The Speakeasy and The Lava Room.
Jimmys, an American restaurant and bar, is where the swank dinner crowd hits the dance floor on Saturday night for its signature Salsa Night. Youll also find what they claim to be one of the largest tequila menus in the country (more than 65).
The Wine Spot at the Grand Hyatt is a civilized quiet place to enjoy a drink. The bar has a Cruvinet system of preserving and dispensing wine by the glass.
Erics Bar, Cigar Bar and Aspen Billiards all attract singles and have lots of microbrews on tap (great scotch, too). Another beer spot is McStorlies Pub. A relatively mixed crowd congregates in the Red Onion and Little Annies. Cooper Street Pier is very much a local and college student hangout.
There are many other night spots in town; pick up a copy of Aspen Magazines Travelers Guide for a list, or check local papers, The Aspen Times and The Aspen Daily News for current happenings.
