John Malcovich has been spotted here. If that’s not a visual consider seeing an optometrist. Love the 80’s, Thursday is your night-until 6:00 am. It’s a cool, albeit eerie collection of chandeliers, leather, mirrors and full sized wall portraits. Mix in a stage, a horseshoe bar and some hipster /unpretentious types and you are automatically granted the right to remember every dance filled, inebriated adult night there. Live music most nights with a Dj and go-go dancers on others. Their calendar is always up to date with local or out of state indie/alternative performers who jam, rock, jazz, blues, and everything else. The live acts determine whether Jack allows smoking, just remember the folks here don’t care about your job they simply want a great night out and even better music.
