everybody! My name is Scott
and I've been the care taker here
at Jakes for the last 14 years.
started bartending I was in the
rock business. I used to
work for the Chicago band, Ministry,
drum teched for Soundgarden, and
Tour managed Krist Novoselic's band
Sweet 75 to name a few. Was in a
band called Pigface for a couple
albums also. Quit it all about 7
years ago to bartend and wake up
in my own bed every day. I love
beer. I've visited the Westmalle
Trappist brewery, and Tres Fontaines
lambic brewery, both in Belgium.Visited
Guinness and New Glarus Breweries,
and even dabbled in home brewing.
I can probably bore you with beer
talk or old tour stories, if you
come in to visit me on a slow day.We're
Always trying to keep the beer list
fresh and interesting, switching
it up often, but sticking with the
classic's and favorites. Check me
out weekday's til 8pm, we get a
fun crowd during the day.
Jake's and Jake's loves Kris.
She thought it was only fair to give
something back to the bar that's made
her feel so at home over the years.
Flashback to1993 when on a late night
'packaged goods' run, she ventured
out across Clark street into the divey
bar on the corner. A six-pack to go
and a decade later it's become a career.
Kris shares her Jake's spirit on Monday,
Tuesday and Friday nights where you'll
likely hear her favorite beats of
funk and hiphop. Thirsty?
