#117 Jimmy's (Aspen, Colorado)

Proprietor Jimmy Yeager was one of the first buyers of 100 percent agave-based tequila, back in 1984 — the Chinaco and Caliente brands — and since then, Jimmy’s has been the pied piper of agave-based spirits. Since 1997, Yeager’s eponymous New York City railroad car-style bar has been serving more than 100 different tequilas and mezcals and sharing tequila expertise. The charming Colorado bar, with vaulted tin ceiling, L-shaped copper bar top, and wainscotted walls, is stocked with 86 tequilas and 28 mezcals. The drink menu includes a 600-bottle Wine Spectator Award-winning wine list and 24 specialty cocktails. Bartenders mix and pour the signature Jimmy’s Margarita (Tapatio reposado tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice, and agave syrup), Jimmy's Negroni (Fords London dry gin, Campari, Carpano Antica, and Punt e Mes Sweet Vermouths), and the Jimmy Mac (The Macallan's worldwide signature cocktail of The Macallan 18-year-old single malt scotch and Bénédictine brandy). Jimmy’s bartenders started squeezing fresh juice into their cocktails and pouring from a premium well when only a handful of bars across the country were doing so. The Denver bar is also popular for its food, including specialties like filet with béarnaise, prime rib, and chicken parmesan, and jumbo lump blue crab cakes. (Yurly S./Yelp)
