This place is the definition of "Meh"
If Jackaon's on George were a Superhero, it would be Aquaman. It it were a dish? A tasty hamburger but without enough cheese.
A song? Blank Space by Tay Tay - not as good as Style, not as daring as Bad Blood, not as pretty as Wildest Dreams.
It's a PJ's downstairs which is a good pub, don't get me wrong, but... a Good Pub is literally any pub that serves cold beer and edible food. Not a big accomplishment especially near The Rocks.
Second floor seems promising - there's a sizable Dance Floor (dance floor. whatever, it's Friday) which is good, the seating is AWESOME and could be REALLY good, however, the music is absolutely boring. like... absolutely, tremendously mundane. Its like, really badly mixed top 40's stuff. Dark, filled with red light blaring terribly boring music is literally my personal definition of the apocalypse. Sure, you want clubs to be dark, but it's not dark enough. Sure you want there to be fun lights but it's like... lights from a elementary school dance, not even prom level.
Then, you have the top floor which, in my personal opinion, is the best. HOWEVER, that's only because they still have a smoking area, 2 pool tables shoved awkwardly into a corner so you cue hits the walls and infrastructure in certain sides.
It's got a pretty good vibe if you're a big group and just want to use the whole area or if you don't like human contact.
Look... the place is super empty on Saturday nights but it's got SO MUCH potential. It's actually really sad. If there are any event managers or promoters out there, dude... USE JACKSON'S FOR SOME COOL STUFF PLEASE!
I don't really know if it's because of the lock-out laws, but yeah... totes Snoresville, population: 0.
Up your game, Jackson's. Please.
the existing stars are only for the staff, they were great! loved them. would come back just for the service but probs wouldn't stay too long.
