Dine at Hotel Jerome

Modern flavors. Legendary setting.

New Classics
If the modern interpretations of classic dishes at Hotel Jerome seem infused with individual spirit and flair, that’s because the cooking here is highly personal: executive chef Rob Zack began his career as a line cook at the iconic hotel over 20 years ago. Now, he serves everything from charcuterie he’s cured himself, an art he learned in his grandfather’s butcher shop, to the Italian meatball recipe passed down through family generations.

Stories from Hotel Jerome

Aspen Crud at J-Bar - Hotel Jerome

Drink Toasting J-Bar’s Legendary “Aspen Crud”

With its lively buzz and Old West vibe, the legendary J-Bar isn’t just Aspen’s social hub. It’s also a reminder—and bustling relic—of the town’s rich history. Cowboys and miners once rode their horses through J-Bar’s doors during Aspen’s silver boom, and drinks are still slung over the original century-plus-year-old maple bar. When Prohibition struck in 1920, J-Bar went the way of a host of other bars across America: it became a soda fountain. “Necessity is the mother of invention,” as they say, and the Aspen Crud was soon born.

Learn To Sign Your Name on an Aspen Landmark

Next time you’re ordering your favorite cocktail at the J-Bar, ask about “the drawer.” And, after that, ask if your bartender has signed it yet. Famously known for its hundreds of intricately carved signatures, the drawer holds the names of every bartender who has worked in the J-Bar since its opening day in 1889. If you happen to be at the J-Bar at the right time, you might even catch a touring group from the Aspen Historical Society showing it off. Now shellacked to seal it’s inked history, the drawer is an Aspen landmark worth toasting to.

Learn Remembering Hunter S. Thompson at Hotel Jerome

To the rest of the country, Hunter S. Thompson might be best known as the godfather of gonzo journalism. Thompson lived and wrote on the edge in a style epitomized in “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” which first came out in two installments in Rolling Stone before being published as a book that would end up defining the post-'60s counterculture. But to Aspenites, and especially here at Hotel Jerome, he’s best remembered for his 1970 run for sheriff of Aspen Pitkin County.

Chef Rob Zack

MEET CHEF ZACK

Executive chef Rob Zack comes from a rich culinary tradition: his grandfather owned a butcher shop, where the young Zack learned the art of charcuterie and how to coax the best flavors from uncommon meat cuts. But his professional career would start later—as a line cook at the Hotel Jerome over 20 years ago. He’s since worked his way up to head the culinary operations at the Viceroy Hotel in Snowmass, where he opened and oversaw its signature restaurant, EightK, and slope-side eatery, Nest. Now back home at Hotel Jerome to oversee its dining program, Zack revels in taking a new approach to Aspen’s steep culinary traditions and using the freshest local ingredients from the Roaring Fork Valley.
