The Jasper is a cozy bar with a rotating cocktail menu. In 2018, a collection of Richmond‘s best-known mixologists launched this speakeasy-style cocktail bar to great acclaim in the city’s thriving Carytown area. The list includes Mattias Hägglund, Thomas Leggett, Brandon Peck, and Kevin Liu. The bar’s menu contains classic drinks such as the Hailstorm Julep, created with Laird’s Smith & Cross rum, apple brandy, port, mint, bespoke cocktails, beer, and wine, and a snack menu utilizing bread that is freshly baked at Carytown Cupcakes next door. What would be the name of a Superbo created by the owners and bar managers of three prominent Richmond cocktail bars? That’s The Jasper, named for one of Richmond’s earliest mixologists. 

Carytown’s most cocktail-focused pub launched in early 2018 with an approachable menu that includes creative cocktails (try the Quoit Club Punch with Jamaican rum, brandy, rainwater Madeira, lemon, and sugar) and inexpensive beer. This tiny cocktail bar was named one of The South’s Best Bars in 2020 by Southern Living (rated #3), one of The Best Places to Travel in 2020 by Tripsavvy, and one of Virginia’s Best Bars by WTVR in 2019, among other accolades. It has been referenced in a dozen more news pieces – all excellent. Stop by for some house drinks, “Penicillin” shots (blended scotch, islay scotch, lemon, honey, and ginger), Quoit Club Punch (the official drink of Richmond’s most prominent 19th-century social club), Nitro Bourbon and Ginger, and small nibbles. Is spiciness your thing? Try the Lucifer in Limbo, which combines mezcal, Suze, ancho Reyes Verde, lime, pineapple, and Thai chili. 

Do you like creamy? Choose Who Is She?, which has an amaro mix, sweet vermouth, Licor 43, bitters, bubbly, and cream. What about traditional? Stick to an Espresso Martini, which combines vodka, espresso liqueur, and expensive cold brew coffee. Snack on olives, popcorn, or bar nuts, or eat something more substantial, such as the Chicken & Pork Terrine or the Pickle Plate. If you visit during the holidays, you can be lucky enough to witness the Miracle on Cary. A Christmas cocktail pop-up bar celebrated in famous worldwide bars throughout December. The Jasper features a unique themed beverage menu with matching cuisine served in festive glassware, and they change their typical digs into a kitschy and nostalgic Christmas bar. Oh, delight! OMG, we adore Jasper. There’s nothing else like it in Richmond, from the ambiance to the inventive drinks and the incredibly knowledgeable and polite staff and bartenders.
