Jerry Jones has been in the business for 48 years, the last 13 of them bartending at George. When asked what the craziest thing he's seen in his time, he responded, "there's been so many." Jones got into the Industry, as so many do, because it's fun. If you catch him early enough on Sundays he'll gift you a kolache with a small paper ramekin of mustard which pairs well with just about any drink you order. The kind of service that feels more like a warm hug.
The owner, George, a well-known bartender from the historic JR's bar located just a few blocks away, collects die hard patrons. One in particular explains, "what I like about George is, every time I walked in (At JR's), he'd put my drink down. I didn't have to say a word." Though this patron lives 13 miles away, he pointed, "in suburbia", he makes the drive, stating, "George is my place."
Television screens play sports 'round the clock, while pool tables, dart boards and tabletop games also entertain. With a jukebox on command, dance parties erupt most times we visit. A great spot to pre-game with the crew or post up at the long marble bar.
