Since 1997, Jimmy’s has been Aspen’s neighborhood restaurant and bar, the kind of comfortable restaurant where you can dine again and again. Ask any local, and you will hear that Jimmy’s is an “Aspen Institution.” The menu has something for everyone, from the fresh-squeezed margaritas and the “locally-priced” bar menu to the famous crab cakes, USDA prime steaks, and fresh fish.
“The menu is designed to feature the finest in American cuisine without being pretentious, served in an energetic atmosphere,” says proprietor (and local) Jimmy Yeager. The energy at Jimmy’s is what really draws a crowd; the bar is nearly always jam-packed and the dining room lively with activity and a mix of interesting people. The welcoming staff provide the best in top-notch hospitality. Jimmy’s is “home” for a large community of locals and tourists alike. Plus, it’s the only place in town to experience the steamy rhythms of salsa and tango every Saturday night at 11.
In the summer and fall, enjoy a beautiful sunset while dining on the patio. At the nationally-renowned bar, order from the bar menu or full dining menu and enjoy a well-crafted cocktail. If you share Jimmy’s passion for tequila, choose from more than 120 top-shelf agave or Mezcal brands. Winner of the nationally recognized Santé Magazine 2004 Spirits hospitality restaurant of the year award, Jimmy’s list was rated the finest in the country, and in 2012 Jimmy’s was recognized as one of the Top 50 Bars in the nation by Food & Wine magazine.
