The Core at Little Jumbo by Frank Zipperer

“This Five Points neighborhood bar takes cocktail history seriously—it’s named after a New York bar once run by illustrious nineteenth-century barman Harry Johnson. The drinks menu recently was revamped after a pandemic-long season of sampling and testing. (Yes, that beats however you spend your pandemic.) There’s no better excuse to pull up a seat and see what’s new and delicious.”

“Little Jumbo was everything we could have wished for in a cocktail bar, and then some. Every cocktail has 5 ingredients or less to expedite the process, but don’t worry, the flavor is not compromised. We were totally impressed by the Manhattan service for Two, which was presented on a silver platter with necessary accompaniments- including a bowl of cherries!?”

“Simply put, Little Jumbo should be at the top of your list of places for cocktails in Asheville. The drinks and service are both top-notch, and the atmosphere is reminiscent of a relaxed speakeasy, without a trace of the pretention that can sometimes be found in such places.”

“This warmly welcoming cocktail bar has a classic vibe and a focus on good, unpretentious service. Isn't that the way all bars should be?”

“Little Jumbo has a comfortable yet modern feel, lacks affectation and focuses on the drink and the experience.”

“As you sip your drink, you feel a cozy intimateness, yet there’s a buzz to the atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re a part of something bigger… a community, a neighborhood.”
