Whiskey business: Famous Sun Valley-area bar on the block

Boise Regional Realtors

Nearly ten years after a massive fire gutted Whiskey Jacques on Main Street in Ketchum – the rebuilt business is for sale.

Listings for the business indicate a $4.7 million price tag for the bar and restaurant, noting that the current owner is hoping to retire.

The 10,500 square foot business was reconstructed in place after the fire destroyed both Whiskey’s and a vacant building next door that once housed a vacant Dirty Little Roddie’s offshoot.

The business listing calls Whiskey’s a “trophy” and plays up the potential:

Whiskey Jacques has been an iconic fixture in downtown Ketchum, for the past 60 years. Sale is ”turn-key”, including, lot, improvements, liquor license, all F,F&E, Copyright name and logo. Buy the history, invest in the future. Designed with options to keep up with the growth of town and new technology.
