One of the more tragic aspects of Prohibition was the “Jake Walk” - a very peculiar stiff-legged, often jerky gait afflicting people drinking a patent medicine known as Jamaican Ginger. Also known as “Jake”, this alcohol-based concoction turned out to have been contaminated with a neurotoxin by the shady characters attempting to slip their formula past the Dry Authorities.
The JakeWalk, the restaurant and bar, is dedicated to celebrating our good fortune to live in an age where we need never resort to drinking patent medicines to give us a little lift after a hard day’s work; where we’ve got more good things to drink—fine wines, old whiskies, cocktails and the like—than ever before, if we just know where to look for them. Here, at least, you will find MOST of them.
THE JAKEWALK IS CLOSED and will forever miss its amazing customers. We had a great run and couldn't be more proud of the fantastic work we have done in the last 9.5+ years. THANK YOU, thank you thank you.
