Good Times Had By All!. I just moved to Chicago's Lakeview area from DC. On my first trip to Chicago in winter 2004, my best friend took me to Jackie's and I loved it! Having lived in DC for so long I wasn't used to people being so outgoing, genuinely friendly and not self-absorbed. Within 5 mins we struck up a conversation with a fellow bar-goer, the bartender and a person sitting next to us. The next time I visited (many months later) the bartender remembered me, that I was from DC and what I drank! I have gone back every time I have visited until I moved there this month (July '06) and each time I always felt at home! Everyone is sooooo nice and open to a conversation about anything and all things deep or trivial. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Jacqueline's and can't wait until I can unwind after my move for some downtime at the bar! Thank you, Jackie and Chicago for making me and my roommate feel as at home as we do in our hometown!
Kooky dive caters to a diverse crowd in search of casual cocktails and good conversation..
This dive for neighborhood docs, cops--even drag queens--emits a friendship-for-all vibe. Loads of regulars chat about sports, politics and girls (natural or otherwise). Given its unassuming and unoffending nature, this classic, no-frills corner tap threatens to become a regular hang for those in search of a less-than-scenester scene.
Open every day of the year, the eclectic Jacqueline's serves nearly 50 bottled beverages, from Smirnoff Ice to Newcastle, to a mostly shot and beer clientele. But a large liquor selection--particularly vodka--allows for the bar's highly touted martinis, as well as highballs with single-malt scotches. A dartboard and video poker game reside at the back of the long, narrow space, while pictures of folks at past festivities adorn walls. Juke tunes are as diverse as the crowd, ranging from ABBA and Cher to Cake and Hole.
Best Bar In The 'Hood.... The only bar you'll ever need. Friendly staff, big cheap drinks, and a great jukebox are among the draws. The crowd veers from college types to lesbigay to sports fan to older neighborhood folks and just about everything in between. That person you are sitting next to may be turn out to be a judge, a transexual, an accountant, or a go - go dancer. No worries, everyone is an equal here and there is absolutely NO attitude, all succumb to the groovy Jacqueline's vibe...
Aesome bar, great people!. My wife and I visit from Michigan a few times a year, and we ALWAYS go to Jackie's. People there remember us, even months after our last visit. What a great bar with great regulars and great conversation. They'll even call you a taxi when you black out! =)
sexy bartender. If your looking for great conversations or a place to throw darts, play cards, or watch hockey games, look no further. Jacquelines has it all.
a friendly bar :). A great bar....day or night. Friendly patrons, who may just like to actually converse.
Great Neighborhood Bar!. Jackies is a great place to visit or visit regularly if you want to avoid the cologne-wreaking meatmarkets a few blocks south. A neighborhood bar nestled in Lakeview, Jackies is a great place to grab martinis, beers or anything in between from Greg and other excellent barstaff. You can either keep to yourself or find an interesting conversation with an array of people from the neighborhood and visitors from all over. Friends returning to visit me in Chicago request darts at Jackies over most other locations and activities.
Drink with the be(a)st. Indeed, everything you want out of a neighborhood bar. Friendly, what-can-I-get-for-you bartenders. Cheap beer (for Chicago). Hey-there-howya-doin customers.
were pets meet. A nice place to meet people of all backgrounds and professions. Your pets will be as welcome as you.
Friendly people. This is a great place to meet sincere people. Many friendships have been founded at "Jackie's" Jackie, the owner makes sure that it is friendly atmosphere for all kinds of people in the neighborhood, no matter what race, religion, or sexual preference.
