Ok, Johnny Brendas. I go here fairly often. The first floor bar is long. Ample number of tables in the back too. Lots of oddities adorn the wall and counter behind the bar. Stools are ragged and torn. Two pool tables take up a good bit of the first floor. Come summer, the outdoor seating is great. I enjoy watching the occasional el train go by and the hustle and bustle of Frankford & Girard. (The Girard Ave el stop is a hop, skip & jump away, another plus.) Under the same ownership as Standard Tap, you will find strong similarities between the food & beer menus. The waitstaff are also very cordial and attentive, like at the Tap. Really tough to say one is "better" than the other. It really depends on you and what you're after on any given outing. A total "eye of the beholder" - type thing. The one thing JBs has that ST doesn't is a steady flow of live music on their second floor. I love going to see shows there. Since it is a little more rocking than it's sister bar to the south, does it attract a younger crowd you might ask? Well maybe, but it doesn't really matter. It's not a clubby, dancey, pukey, pretensey kind of young. It's more of a laid-back, chill vibe than anything else and that always crosses age barriers. It's hard not to feel comfortable at JBs. It's gritty, but charming. If you want to let your hair down yet still require the quality of food and beer that comes with a top notch gastropub, this is the place to be. My advice: Keep an eye on their band schedule and go see a show there!

You're right.. A place does not get 5 stars based on how tough the door is. It gets 5 stars because I was treated well with service, the bouncers were kind to me, the crowd was cool, and the bartender was quick with my order. My friend and I stumbled upon this place on saturday night, halloween weekend thinking it was different lounge. We by passed the insane line and went up front to the bouncer and let us right in. Lines are for ugly girls. Kidding. If you act clueless and you're nice, theres no reason for a group of girls to wait in line wearing nothing but lingerie for a "costume". There is no cover and I assume its a very tight door. Probably have better chances getting in if you don't have boys. When we got in it was packed and dark. Music is good , sounds good, but the space is kind of small. I think the drinks are supposed to be expensive since everyone seems to say so, but we got comp tickets and I also knew one of the bartenders. Look for a tall, dark hair and handsome guy, Cliff. Hes an awesome drink slinger and makes drinks strong. The crowd is gorgeous, one of the best I've seen. Everyone was dancing and having a great time so it wasn't one of those pretentious crowds. I recommend this place. I'd like to give it another try when its not a crazy holiday weekend.

Barf! You will never catch me anywhere near this place again. Worst crowd, worst vibe...dumbest bouncers. Grossest place ever. If you are not one of the following, this place is probably not for you. 1. a completely clueless douche bag who thinks that going out includes roofies, corona, spray-on tan, skanks in clingy dresses, spiking your hair and wearing a "work shirt" open at the chest. 2. a Forever 21 addict with discount cocaine in your Chinatown Prada bag 3. over 38 4. useless with bad taste in music... 5. a tourist I am exaggerating to make my point. I'm sure there were some nice people there.I could go on and sound like an even bigger bitch than I already do. This is the New York that I hate. This is the LA I hate. This is the every big city in the world that I hate. Velvet ropes, jerk bouncers and megalomaniac door people. The false exclusivity is pathetic. The line outside, the haggling at the door. It makes me feel so dirty. Why was I here? I really had no business being here. It really serves me right. But I had a good reason (my friend was djing), but this time I didn't even get in because I had words (about getting off of the public sidewalk) with the idiot bouncer and he had to have his pathetic victory of making sure I didn't get into this garbage club that I was actually too young, too sober and too broke to be in anyway.
