On more than one occasion, someone rode a horse into the Hotel Jerome’s J-Bar and straight through it. Gives new meaning to “Driving Under the Influence,” right?
Urban legend also states that on one particularly rowdy night, at least three celebrities were “over-served” to the point that they all fell of their bar stools. Good thing the paparazzi weren’t around in those days.
The J-Bar has served as the community’s unofficial gathering place and watering hole for more than a century. But, it’s just one of many bars in town that have seen decades of stories go down. Our new Historic Pub Tour literally walks through some of these establishments, giving guests a chance to learn about local lore and sample the preferred spirits. It leaves from the Red Onion every Thursday at 3:30 p.m., stopping at Justice Snow’s and the J-Bar afterward. Cost is $20, and that includes a small drink at each stop. Obviously, it’s for people ages 21 and over.
