Learn Drink Like John Wayne and Order the Crud
The J-Bar has seen it all— silver booms and busts, the Depression, wars, the who’s who of screen stars clinking glasses, and artists of the counter-culture movement lying low. Temporarily turning into a soda fountain during the 1920’s, the J-Bar even weathered Prohibition. It was then that miners were known to have tossed back the iconic J-Bar concoction that still remains on the menu: The Aspen Crud. Made of bourbon and vanilla ice cream, the whiskey-spiked milkshake was dreamt up to evade the era’s laws. Today, J-Bar bartenders don’t need to hide their spirits behind walls anymore, but the famed drink still tastes like a secret.
