Jack's Bar


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!
