Whiskey Jack's is the city's favorite new bar. Located downtown, there's quite a bit going on here besides cold drinks. For those who aren't professional musicians, Whiskey Jack's hosts open mic and karaoke nights. On top of that, there's an active live music scene with a rotating cast of local and regional groups that span the entire musical spectrum.

And everyone knows that music is best experienced with a cold drink in hand. Whiskey Jack's doesn't disappoint in this regard. The beer really is cold (nothing worse than being served a lukewarm beer). And there are many specials like $4 bloody marys on the weekends, beer specials and $1 Jell-O shots.

Hungry? Whiskey Jack's has a selection of appetizers, and in addition to standard bar fare such as wings and mozzarella sticks, you can choose from garlic cheese curds, fried pickle fries, Italian beef egg rolls, mac 'n cheese bites or cheddar jalapeño poppers. If you need something more substantial, Whiskey Jack's will even help coordinate pizza from the Italian restaurant next door.

Whiskey Jack's also sports plenty of TVs so patrons can enjoy watching their favorite team duke it out – it is a sports bar, after all. Looking for something to do during half-time? Make sure to shoot some darts, especially on the many days they are free. Of course, there are also video gaming machines available. Whether you're looking for cold drinks, a bite to eat or entertainment, Whiskey Jack's has it all.
