Have dinner at Jaks, get 20% off!!!

All summer long, each night, Jaks Tap will award one deserving group (group size must be a minimum of 10 patrons) 20% off their entire tab.  Here's how it works:

  • Reservation must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
  • Call to make your reservation for a specific date; if no one else has reserved the discount on that date it's yours, if the discount has already been claimed you can pick another date or come on in and eat/drink at full price (we don't mind).
  • Group size must be 10 or greater
  • Food and beverage service starts after 5:00 PM.

About Jaks

Jaks Tap has its roots in another great establishment that you may be familiar with, The Village Tap. The Village Tap, located at 2055 W. Roscoe, in Chicago's great Roscoe Village neighborhood, has been around since June 6, 1990 and has received many accolades. To name just a few, it was rated "...one of their favorite spots in the nation," by All About Beer Magazine,"...hands down, one of the best garden/food values in town," by Cheap Chow Chicago and most recently, "Chicago's best beer garden," by Where Chicago Magazine.

Jaks Tap was established in August of 1996 and, like the Village Tap, features great food, friendly atmosphere and the finest selection of draft beer you can find anywhere. We're located in the hot West Loop district two blocks west of Halsted near Greektown. Jaks is open for lunch, dinner and late at night and is the perfect place to stop in to say hi or to bring a big group.

Jaks has three private rooms for parties, meetings and events. You can view our facilities and catering packages and even submit a request for proposal on line, from this site. The Green Room is great for meetings, luncheons, receptions and as a classroom. The Party Room has a pool table and the Brewery Room is where beer was really brewed way back when.
