The Jasper was named one of the "The South's best new bars" by Garden & Gun magazine. 

Mattias Hägglund, Thomas Leggett and Kevin Liu opened the cocktail bar in Jan. 2018 in Carytown and G&G took notice in part because of the stellar reputation Hägglund and Leggett brought with them to the spot at 3113 W. Cary St.

"Craft-cocktail whizzes Mattias Hägglund and Thomas Leggett—formerly of Richmond drink havens Heritage and the Roosevelt, respectively—joined forces with restaurateur Kevin Liu to open this sleek addition to downtown. It’s possessed of a precise, minimalist air that will appeal to the secret Scandinavian in anyone," Garden & Gun wrote.
