A place so glamorous and yet so chill at the same time. This mountainside tavern can be seen halfway down Aspen mountain and is the perfect place for cocktails. And Ajax Tavern also has the best seats in town for all your people-watching pleasures. If you had to get one thing off the menu, don’t miss out on the restaurant’s crisp truffle fries or double cheeseburger!
Belly Up Aspen
If you’re trying to listen to some good music, this is the place for you. Belly Up Aspen is internationally known and has some of the best live music in town. Whether you like blues, hip-hop or alternative, Belly Up brings the most talented acts you can think of.
Hotel Jerome is home to one of the most popular bars in Aspen -- The J-Bar. This bar has a fusion of western and modern-day feels that makes this sophisticated hangout spot so well-known. You don’t have to be a guest to enjoy a drink or two with some friends as this saloon themed bar.
When the lifts are closing you know it’s time to hit up Chair 9 at The Nell. If you get there early enough you might catch one of the featured DJ’s. And during football season watch your favorite teams play on game days! This is the perfect place to unwind with live music through the night. But make sure you visit during ski season because that’s the only time Chair 9 is open!
