Pretty cool set-up. It's your typical frat boy bar with college age and 20 to 30 somethings making up most of the crowd. Usually pretty busy with decent drink specials.

This is usually the place all the college kids go. Cops are always lurking within the building and around it, waiting for drunks to make a mistake. The service for a beer takes atleast 3-5 minutes. They are understaffed on bartenders and the bouncers are extremely pushy. Shortly, after last call the bouncers are quick to get people out, even if you are trying to close your tab or as a designated driver they will make you wait outside(reguardless the weather). The managers do not care if the customers are unhappy and think that all compliants are just "drunk compliants". For the amount of cover to get into the bar and then be treated so poorly, it would be wise to spend your time and money else where.

Pros: the set up of the building and how the owner designed the rooms

Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE

So, I went down there with a few friends to celebrate a birthday. Music was good. Stood in line at the bar for 20 minutes!! I kid you not...only to be told I would have to go to the other room for my drink becuase they don't make my drink at that bar!?? Bars serve all kinds of drinks is what I'm used to. We left and went somewhere better!!! What a F$#%@&n joke!

Fat Jacks has to be the best bar in town. With seperate rooms you can find what atmosphere you want. Great dance floor, although it could be bigger! It gets pretty crowded and hot! plenty of pool tables, great drinks! Love the drink called a fat jack and great drink specials!

Pros: dance floor, good music , entertaining

Cons: , crowded

Cool place, large, a few dance floors, live dj AND live music, delicious drink specials (I recommend the Fat Jack.) This is also a cigar bar, so don't be surprised if people are smoking them. The front opens up to the street in the summer. They have darts, pool, large sofas to relax on, a big bar to belly up to, anyone can have a good time here. Beware of the bathroom lines though, they can get long.

Good live music, pool tables, cool crowd, and I believe, the best beer selection in Bloomington Normal. Enjoy.
