Spread out over four levels, Jacksons seems to be a flashier competitior to The Orient
- the punters when we reviewed were a heady mixture of suits, young urban hipsters, blow-ins and a single, very drunk office party mob blocking off one pool table.
We have to say, we're not that fond of it. We're told that during the day the George Street Bar has a good atmosphere, which we keep promising to confirm. On our review we headed for the top floor and its pool tables, past the nightclub level where it was just starting to warm up. Well, I say warm up, there were at least people arriving, though they didn't seem to be doing much other than sitting around drinking.
It was close to midnight when we arrived, and unfortunately, it was still close to midnight when we left we left one drink later. We figured maybe we'd get a game of pool elsewhere rather than having the tables in danger from dancing office drunks. It was fun to watch music vids on the many screens, but a few clips doth not a pub make. We'll be back, for sure, but when?
