Escape Restaurant and Bar- Best Five Points Bars

Hidden among the eclectic storefronts of the main Five Points drag on Park Street is one of Jacksonville’s emerging gems. Escape Restaurant and Bar is one of those little known local spots that deserves to be visited and revisited again. The staff is eager to please and ensure your experience is flawless. 

The diversity in the menu ensures everyone at the table will be able to find something they want to try, no matter how selective their tastes may be. The main dining area is perfect for lunch or dinner, but if you’re looking for a great place to enjoy a cocktail, head out back to the patio!

Our Thoughts on the Escape Restaurant and Bar

Some places tell you they have “world cuisine” because they offer one or two unusual dishes, but Escape Restaurant is one of these rare gems that deliver on the international promise. We didn’t even know what a Khachapuri was before we saw it on the menu but now we’ll be back to enjoy it again over another local craft brew from the bar.

Well represented in local food and drink, the menu also has wide selections of Mediterranean dishes with South European and Arabic origins as well as some fantastic Philippine creations! The bar stocked with all the bottles you’re looking for and knowledgeable bartenders that are willing to mix you anything you ask for.

The outside patio hosts the party atmosphere of the restaurant, a more lively spot with live music and a dedicated bartender. Hookahs are available on the back patio, but the open air makes for a breezy space so the smoke won’t billow out on the non-smokers in the area.

River & Post- Best Five Points Bars

River & Post Restaurant and Rooftop Lounge is a success story of blending the modern funk with clean and classy lines. The spacious dining room is furbished with decorative exposed pipes and reclaimed wood giving it the desired effect without crossing the line into “too much” atmosphere.

The food is exquisite and some of the freshest seafood dishes you’ll find in Jacksonville and the weekend brunch is a regular gathering of people who have come to know River and Post offers great food, a knock out Bloody Mary or Mimosa, and a rooftop view overlooking the five downtown bridges and cityscape beyond.

Our Thoughts on the River & Post Bar

Our original visit to River and Post was for dinner and we were highly impressed with the service and overall “feel” of the establishment. Feeling classy but falling short of stuffy, it was a great evening out. The lights of the city dazzled below us as we dined on generous portions and perfectly cooked food. Where the kitchen really shined through was the seafood selections.

The wide choice and superbly prepared dishes will tantalize you to return and try something new on your next visit. The brunch occasion is really something to experience. The menu offers something for everyone, but the view is the main attraction. The bar does have a fantastic Bloody Mary, and the rest of the cocktails are just as inviting.

There are private party spaces available, including the rooftop lounge which is the main reason to visit. The food is great and the bar is good, you can sip a martini anywhere, but why not do it with a fantastic view?

Our Thoughts on the Black Sheep Bar

Black Sheep is one of the original “foodie” anchors in the Jacksonville renaissance. The atmosphere in the iconic building is clean and classy with plenty of natural lighting and a fabulous panoramic view from the rooftop lounge. The menu is stacked with heavy hitting meals and small plates alike, offering options for those looking for a meal or just a nibble.

Each dish is a creation rather than “just some food” and you will get the sense that the chef genuinely hopes you enjoy the meal. Hearty home-style foods reinvented as fine dining through the magic of a creative use of locally sourced ingredients. The bar is well stocked with new wines for you to explore, old favorites to enjoy, and a wide selection of staff-invented cocktails that push the limits on what you thought a cocktail should be.

Black Sheep is one of the “must-dine” restaurants not only in Five Points, but in all of Jacksonville.

Hoptinger- Best Five Points Bars

  • Hours: Monday – Friday: 11am – 2:00am ,Saturday – Sunday: 10am – 2:00am
  • Address: 1037 Park Street Jacksonville, FL 32204
  • Phone: (904)-903-4113
  • Website: http://hoptinger.com/

This is not a German restaurant, this is not an American restaurant, Hoptinger Bier Garden and Sausage House comes to us from the imaginary land of Bruvania, a place where beer and sausage is taken as serious as life itself and the recipes have been handed down through the ages where we can now enjoy the benefits of generations of beer and sausage making traditions! 

More than 60 taps all in a row each pouring fine brews from around the country and around the world. When the beer flows, order some of their fine sausages. They have burgers, salads and other fine fare, but you owe it to Colonel Falke to try the roulette wheel of sausage…

Our Thoughts on the Hoptinger Bar

This might be the most fun we’ve had in Five Points in a while. The full immersion into the Bruvania legend is a creative and fun way to present your craft, and when your craft is entertainment, food and drink, we were completely satisfied even without the adorable trappings of the surrounding legend. 

Just to give you an idea of how dedicated Hoptinger is to the bar, the drink menu is four pages long. There are more than 60 revolving taps with crafts from all around. The shelves are deep from popular favorites to the premiums you’ll want for special celebrations. 

The second floor bar has some selective specials available to its patrons and when you reach the rooftop lounge, you’ll find another eleven taps, a dedicated special drink menu, and a limited bar food offering for snacking while enjoying the garden views and fine libations. Hoptinger has a second location out at Jax Beach, but we can’t wait to revisit the Five Points location as soon as we can; maybe even tonight.

Root Down Jax- Best Five Points Bars

It doesn’t take Morpheus from the Matrix to explain this, but ‘what if I told you’ that a local bar can be exciting, refreshing, and an excellent evening out while serving only wine and beer? Yeah, that’s what we thought too. But it’s true!

The bartenders at Root Down have perfected some fine shim cocktails with aromatic ingredients that blend in such a way that will have you happily giving up the hard stuff and longing for another of their fabulous wine creations. The staff is the liveliest and happiest bunch of bartenders you’ll find in Five Points and you are sure to enjoy their company.

Our Thoughts on the Root Down Jax Bar

Setting out for an evening of cocktails at a beer and wine bar wasn’t high on our list to do, but we’re sure glad we did! The staff at Root Down Jax knows any good bar doesn’t depend on how deeply the shelves are stocked, but how interactive and friendly the atmosphere is.

The place is jumping with friendly and happy faces. The dance floor is active and sometimes eerily quiet with the “silent disco” spinning tunes on the headphones! There is an outdoor patio area where you can sit and take in some fresh air when you need to get some space. The party is happening indoor and out, and all with some of the best service we’ve experience in Jacksonville.

The craft beer list is extensive and the wine list is complimented with creative low alcohol cocktails seemingly designed to make you wonder who thought to add this ingredient to that drink, but one sip in and we were glad they did!
