Chinatown’s newest bar, Jackpot, (from the same owner as nearby Iron Horse Taproom and Rocket Bar) has quietly opened on 7th Street below the still open Lime Fresh.

726 7th Street, NW

Their facebook page says:

“Craft beer and cocktails”

    Iron Horse is good, Rocket Bar is not. This looks more similar to Iron Horse thankfully.

    This looks exactly like Rocket Bar and appears to be in a basement right near Rocket Bar. How many mediocre basement bars can these guys open?

      As long as their “mediocre” basement bars are making money, which they obviously do. I only wish I had become an investor with them back in the early 90’s…

      it actually looks nothing like either of those bars besides the fact it’s in a basement. it was a pleasant alternative to the other bars in the area with really friendly bartenders

      This place is way better than anything else in the neighborhood. Really chill spot and very friendly bartenders.

    isn’t this the “other part” of Rocket Bar where the shuffleboards tables were?

      No, that’s the other direction. I was just there this weekend, and that’s a whole different space.

    Been missing the “cheers Bro” from Brian Harrison at The Reef? Well a little bird told me Brian is back behind the bar at Jackpot.

      Oh hell, that is reason enough to try this place out!

    Awesome beer list, great whiskey selection. .Kind of hard to find. Bartender Brian let me taste several beers before I found the perfect one. (Ommegang Three Philosophers) Nice to have a bartender who seems to love his job. This is exactly what China Town needs.. Definately going to make this my regular haunt.
