Jacques, located in the Theater District, draws people from all walks of life. It used to mainly be a gay hangout, but that has changed somewhat. It has two floors where the entertainment line splits. In the upstairs Jacques Cabaret segment the drag queens and female impersonators perform while downstairs it is a rock 'n roll haven. "House artist" Rick Berlin (of Luna fame) keeps things interesting as well. Cash only; credit cards not accepted. Cover charge varies; call ahead for performance schedules.
JACQUES is a nice sedate place to relax and sip on your favorite brew/blend/cocktail; hobnob with the bar keep and the sparse LOYAL patronage -catch up on current events and be regaled by accounts of the by-gone era of the Pilgrim, Playland, and the "combat-zone." And still, to the best of my knowledge, make a REAL love connection. Life is short -get there early, find it fast and hold on.
...BUT then -after dark, roll your stockings down, rouge your knees and brace yourself for the best "World Class" (DON"T-TELL-MAMMA) entertainment you may ever have the pleasure to see. The talented "GIRLS" at Jacques will shock and amuse you all night long. Sending most men into a glorious confusion of delight and doubt; and most women into a gay pique of envy and genuine hysterics. Bring your good friends for support. Be over twenty-one, bring your ID (and a note from your doctor); and, men, please check your fly.
...a nominal cover-charge, and DO NOT resist the compelling URGE to tip the "GIRLS" ...and your waitress !
...if you see me there, don't be shy; stop and say hello.
I have been going to Jacques for an annual birthday drag queen show for my sister for the past four years, this november will be our fifth!
We are usually a diverse group of people who go, and we always ahve the best time! I recommend it for everyone, except you Type A's who take yourself too seriously, or you homo-phobes...you won't like it at all. Everyone else, put on your falsies (be they eyelashes or breasts) and get ready for a great time out!
