Still bearing the decor of its previous incarnation as the burlesque Shim-Sham Club (the flocked-wallpaper looks straight out of Pretty Baby), Jack's seems at once hip nightspot and funky club, with its tiered main level, proscenium stage, and a crowded bar in the middle of the whole thing -- all overlooked by a cozy balcony. The stepped setting and easy alcohol access pretty much invite people to fall on top of each other. Not that that's a bad thing. Bookings favor rock, alternative, and world music (such as Femi Kuti), with national and international touring acts in addition to local faves, and, of course, '80s dance night and "rock 'n' roll karaoke," plus a fancy old-time burlesque show that tickles the locals.
