James Bar


It doesn’t get much better than sitting on the patio at the James Bar while sipping a Blackfoot IPA and chatting with friends after a busy week. The place has an urban vibe, especially on Friday nights, when it draws in an eclectic selection of blue- and white-collar workers, hipsters and neighborhood locals. The drink selection is similarly diverse, ranging from perfect martinis and Moscow mules served in copper cups to a full selection of local beers and affordable wines. And don’t even get us started on the food. The kale salad with steak is ridiculous, as is the more substantive shepherd’s pie. Our perennial favorite, however, is the hearty Aidenator, a burger made with local beef and topped with pancetta, aged white cheddar, onion rings, roasted tomatoes, Worcestershire-black-pepper mayo and a fried egg. If you’ve got room after that—well, first of all, something might be wrong with you—be sure and order a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie served in its own skillet. Your night—and your belly—will be full. James Bar: 127 W. Alder St, 721-8158, facebook.com/james.bar.3597
