Jack's Firehouse is a true old firehouse, with a crew boat mounted above the bar, and a fireman's pole in the back. Its a cool spot to sit outside next to the Penitentiary where Al Capone was incarcerated. There are really friendly bar tenders who play DJ in evenings to a great mix of music. …

Set in a 19th-century firehouse — the fireman’s pole is still standing — Jack’s has been serving innovative American cuisine, along with impressive whiskey and scotch selections, to neighbors and visitors for more than 20 years.

This is an old firehouse that was converted into a bar with the large two story doors still in tact. So beautiful inside and great when the weather is nice because they leave the giant doors open.
