Jack's Bar

133 user reviews 5

Jack's is a cosy, Southwark based bar, run by two brothers and offering a range of ice-cold beer, tasty comfort food and delicately balanced cocktails. With their father having owned the site in the 1970s, the two brothers look to recreate the venue's original vibes, emphasising the fact the bar is based under railway arches using exposed brick walls, wood floors and vintage furnishings.
