5 of the Best Bars in Aspen, Colorado


Directions to Jimmy’s

If you ask Aspen regulars where they go, it’s probably Jimmy’s. This restaurant and bar has been open since 1997, and over the years, it has barely changed at all. Visitors feel right at home every time they come, and their list of craft cocktails is always impressive! Don’t forget to sign their famous autograph wall when you visit to make it official. 

Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar 

Directions to Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar

When you arrive at Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar, you’ll feel as if you’re heading into a secret speakeasy. This cozy yet elegant bar is located in the basement under Meat & Cheese Restaurant & Farm Shop, but once you step inside, you would never know! Countless bottles of liquor line the brick walls, chandeliers hang from the ceiling, and comfortable seating is scattered throughout. Their cocktail menu changes seasonally, so you never know what’s in store!

The Monarch

Directions to The Monarch

If you’re looking for an upscale night out on the town, head to The Monarch. This extravagant steakhouse has a great bar and excellent bartenders. Enjoy a world-class cocktail, glass of wine, or a classic aperitif from their menu. If you want the whole experience, go for the Beluga & Caviar, a simple drink of Beluga Gold Line Noble Russian vodka, caviar, and cucumber. 

Aspen Tap
