Justice Snow’s is the perfect combination of a hip downtown Aspen restaurant in an historic space with a landmark location in the Wheeler Opera House building, originally constructed in 1889.

Justice Snow’s has been named to OpenTable’s 2015 Diner’s Choice list, celebrated by the New York Times for their libations as well as being named to Playboy Magazine’s Best Bar List and heralded by Food & Wine Magazine as among the Best Bars in the U.S. for 2014.

Interior designer Matt Duncan has revived this legendary Aspen haunt to feel both hip and historic, with a mix of reclaimed & repurposed materials and custom-made pieces. Our Victorian-era bar has inhabited this space for the past 25 years, and the original Wheeler Bank vault door graces the dining room. There are elements to be discovered throughout, from a brass chandelier that hung in the Columbia University library over 100 years ago to hidden antique doorbell medallions that serve as peepholes to view vintage films. (Ask your server to tell you which one boasts boudoir films.) Browse our photo gallery here.


Chef Jonathan Leichliter
