Jimmy’s in Aspen is like that neighborhood bar where everyone knows your name, only in true Aspen style, it serves up some of the town’s best food, wine and cocktails — no stale bar nuts here.
“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.
Their signature drink, the Jimmy’s Harvest Manhattan, is a western take on the classic cocktail. Read on for the recipe.
