Description

Jack's is one of the best things to have hit the streets of Southwark in recent years. Occupying a converted railway arch, owners Ryan and John McElhinney have transformed the space into a trendy new venue, furnished with bespoke items and vintage pieces: antique and modern furnishings sit upon dark, walnut floors and against exposed bricked walls, whilst soft lighting creates a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Paying homage to the original bar and restaurant opened in 1970 by their father, Jack's ticks all of the boxes when it comes to an inner city bar. The bar is always fully stocked, and their new food menu serves up a tasty lookin' selection of authentic Thai food; what's more, the interior is packed with comfy seating and is spacious enough to allow for privacy - what more could you want from a Central London bar? 

Whatever the reason for your visit, Jack's can accommodate. If the sun is shining, then seek out a space under the wooden canopy and enjoy an ice cool beer or one of their signature cocktails. In the winter months, Jack's is an ideal space to hide from the cold weather: settle yourself on one of the plush sofas with a pint and a paper. Jack's is always a popular choice for a friendly catch up, a bite to eat after work or even as a low key, relaxed space to bring that special someone on date night.

For something a little different, book into one of Jack's cocktail making classes, and try your hand at whipping up some of the expertly crafted cocktails you've been sipping on. For as little as £39.99, you'll get your hands on a glass of bubbly on arrival, two of masterfully mixed cocktails, 10% off your drinks for the rest of your nights, a team photo and a certificate to take home. You never know, your creation may well be put on sale that night, if you mix up the wining cocktail!

On the hottest day of the year so far, it was no surprise to find that most people in Southwark knew that Isabella Street harbours some terrace gems, but I was wondering if they knew about the vegan tacos and vegetarian pizzas to be found down there...

We had our work Christmas party at Jack's and everyone was really impressed by it. The bar itself was designed nicely and a sufficient amount of space had been provided to us. The staff were all friendly and prices were reasonable for central London. Visited Jack's Bar on 2017-12-15

Love Jacks Bar and the staff were super helpful. Great for any occasion. It's a very small complaint but we were promised a free bottle which I don't think every arrived and then it was too confusing to see if it had or not. If you're looking for a central location though defo use Jacks. Visited Jack's Bar on 2017-12-11

The service from all staff, from booking to on the night, was flawless. After the space I wanted to book was initially unavailable, I was contacted as soon as the previous party cancelled. On the night, the staff serving us were friendly from the moment we arrived. The staff behind the bar were great and, perhaps the thing people want most from a bar, fast to serve. I had a fantastic time, will be recommending the bar to friends and will definitely be returning. Thank you. Visited Jack's Bar on 2017-11-25

Atmosphere, drink, food, music and staff all great. Everyone had a really good night and the venue was ideal for a civilised [non-]stag-do.

I had a wonderful Birthday celebration at Jacks Bar. Wilma was very helpful answering my questions, and setting up the booking beforehand. On the night I found I had been reserved the 'perfect' area in the back room. It fitted my requirements fantastically, and everyone had a wonderful time. The staff were excellent, the happy hour appreciated, and the venue an all-over success. Thank you for a birthday celebration to be remembered. 10/10! Visited Jack's Bar on 2017-09-09

We were at Jack's for a combined leaving do for 10 people. Jack's were brilliant. We reserved an area, pre-ordered food and had a tab running so people could get a welcome drink.

We had a great time thank you. It was mine and a colleagues leaving do and we were in the back room bit - which was great . As it was not too noisy people could really talk. This meant that even though people had been at work all day , they stayed until about 9 - which i had not expected. about 8 of us stayed until we were chuck out ! (very polite security Men!) The only thing i would say , was that although the pizza was very tasty the tomato past was too runny and a few people dropped it on their tops. Many thanks , Margaret Visited Jack's Bar on 2017-05-11

Booked a space here for my birthday and I'm so glad I did. It's in such a great location right behind Southwark Station and because the weather was nice, all the folding glass doors were open so the space felt really big and airy, yet cozy at the same time. All the bar staff were so friendly and helpful. We ordered some food to share with the group - mini burgers, fries, nashos & wings and they were all delicious. It wasn't too busy for a Saturday night but the atmosphere was great and a dj played a really good set later in the evening. Will definitely be coming back! Visited Jack's Bar on 2017-04-08

Organised a joint birthday party for 20+ of our friends. We were given an area (with tables) at the end of the bar which was great, but even better was the staff popping past from time to time to check If we needed anything. Wish I could remember their names so I could give them a special mention... Oops. Food was good, especially the pizza! Also great choice of beers and wines. I loved the music selection, though perhaps a little loud as voice was fading by end of evening. All in all very happy, it's just a shame I don't have more birthdays. Visited Jack's Bar on 2017-03-18

I wont waste too much time on this place as its not worth it. Food (Especially the chicken wings) was great. The venue itself is really cool. Staff (Most notable the management) - SHOCKING... Unless being talked to like a child by someone rolling a cigarette is your idea of a good time? It's a real shame as I would go here more often due to working just round the corner, and all their sister pubs are so great. For some reason Jacks bar never fails to leave you feeling bitterly disappointed. Visited Jack's Bar on 2017-03-17

We enjoyed our evening but nearly left early. The booking for 4 was from 6.30 but when we ordered food at pm we were told the kitchen was closed until 7.30 due to a big pre-order. This was a bit annoying but the manager on the night came over and was very pleasant as was the waitress so we stayed. Food ok but not brilliant but ambiance and actual enjoyment of the evening was great. I just think you need to clarify with people when they sit if there are issues with the kitchen so they can make a decision whether they stay or find an alternative.
