"Scranton hasn't seen a great bar in years... Thoughtful creative design minus the obnoxious TV's , beer posters and banners. You can actually go here and hang out, The exterior does not hint at what's inside...well done!!"
"Super laid back, cool bar located on a residential street Scranton/Wilkes-Barre region of NEPA – was happily surprised and pleased with its atmosphere and stiff drinks.
The best aspect was how many different rooms one could choose to hang out in. Perfect for reconnecting friends, chill live music, and dates. A personality blend of Scranton, Ithaca, and Brooklyn to keep me going back when in town"
"Great Place! It has a very nice clean atmosphere. Nice friendly crowd and service. Good paninis!"
"I have been going to Jack's for the past several years & only recently do I go out of my way to go there. After being remodeled & taken under new ownership it has officially become my favorite place to go. With endless trashy clubs & kitschy Irish bars all over Scranton, Jack's has broken the mold by operating a beautifully well thought out bar where a more mature crowd can gather to have great drinks & great food. Perfect! "
What's with the flag?
Many people ask us about The Flag that dominates the wall behind the bar. Well, it seems the truth is quite simple. During the extensive renovation of the bar, an interior wall was removed and sandwiched between it was The Flag. But this flag only has 48 stars. That means it dates back from between 1912-1959 (the years when New Mexico & Arizona / Alaska and Hawai'i became states). Even more interesting is that it very well could have survived both World Wars. Today, The Flag has become our symbol of rejuvenation from a distant past and we are proud to display it for all to see and admire.
