As we edge closer towards the summer, we’re conducting plans for a full reopening of Jacks Bar.
In the meantime, we’re delighted to announce that we'll be reopening our outdoor space from 12th April and inside the bar from 17th May. Settle in for the night, with tasty food from our Thai kitchen, and get cocktails flowing. If lunchtime is more your thing, then you can grab yourself a takeaway from our authentic street food table.
It’s the third, and hopefully last time we say this, but we can’t wait to welcome you back.
Your safety and that of our staff is always the top priority so we've carried out risk assessments on all sites in preparation for opening which you can find links to below. We've re-trained our staff and arranged our service spaces to meet Government guidelines so that we all remain safe. Not only this but we have enhanced our cleaning and hand-washing schedules to make sure hygiene standards are at their highest. Our kitchen staff will be provided with appropriate PPE and our floor staff are able to access PPE and use it at their discretion.
Here are a few changes you can expect from your next visit with us...
Jack’s Bar and Kitchen is the brainchild of Ryan and John McElhinney. We are located at 96 Isabella Street (behind Southwark Tube) SE1 8DD. The original Jack’s was opened in Ireland in 1970 by their father Jack (now sunning himself in Spain) so the boys decided to pay tribute to their father by re-opening the original almost forty years on. Jack's is a bar for birthdays, catching up with friends, lunch on our patio in the sunshine, craft beer, cocktails and delicious Thai food.
We cater for many events including wedding receptions so enquire now by emailing
Our authentic Thai food "Johnny Rice" is served Tuesday - Friday lunch.
From 12th April grab your Takeaway boxes, order your drinks and plot up at a table in our outdoor area to enjoy your afternoon.
