The Loft Bar- Best King Street Bars

If you’re in the King Street area and looking for a great space for dancing and drinking, come over to The Loft and find your new home for Karaoke, lively DJs, and friendly bartenders. The crowd comes alive much later in the evening as if this is the spot to be after all the rest have closed up or failed to impress. 

The Loft Bar is a simple and no-frills dance club and bar with the perfect bland of good drinks and good atmosphere which in turn attracts a good crowd of people looking to have a good time. The Loft takes all of this and turns it into a great dance bar.

Our Thoughts on the The Loft Bar

Imagine a pretty good sized dance floor with a U-shaped bar in the front center of it so you can dance all night and get a drink from nearly anywhere on the dance floor. You’ve just though of The Loft. We first visited on a Karaoke night where the lyrics were splashed on the brick wall and everyone sang uninhibited as if they were the rock star everyone came to see.

We revisited on a regular dance night and found the same kind of feeling; that “free to do as we please” dancing, drinking, and carousing that you can only get in a space like The Loft where you know everyone is friendly and out to have a good time.

The drinks came quickly even though the house was packed pretty full, the music was adjusted to the noise in the bar so we could enjoy the tunes but still communicate with friends. This place knows how to run a dance bar.

Park Place Lounge- Best King Street Bars

Days at Park Place Lounge are a relaxing quiet bar feel with eclectic songs coming from the jukebox and neighborhood locals enjoying a drink or two at the bar. As evening rolls in, so do the rest of the guests, coming in from far corners of Riverside and Jacksonville in general. 

The music turns up, dance floor becomes active, and the place comes alive. Friendly faces everywhere and great drinks poured by expert bartenders make Park Place Lounge one of the more alluring night spots in the King Street district as it’s never too crowded and never empty, it always seems to have just the right amount of traffic day or night.

Our Thoughts on the Park Place Lounge

Okay, let’s get this out of the way, Park Place Lounge identifies as an LGBTQ+ bar. If we didn’t mention it, you’d wonder why we didn’t. And the truth is, if we didn’t mention it, you might not notice it. The vibe here is one of the friendlier and more exciting nightlife atmospheres we’ve experienced at any bar, in the King Street district or elsewhere in Jacksonville.

The dance floor is small but always filled with energy, the bar runs itself ragged keeping your drinks full and smiles on your face, and when you need a little air, the outdoor patio is amazing.

We sincerely took some notes on how to take their relaxed and laid back style and attempt to recreate that space at home, the Park Place Lounge patio is a great escape with a drink on your hand and friends surrounding you everywhere you look. We’d be hard pressed to recommend any bar above this for friendly atmosphere.

Kickbacks Gastropub- Best King Street Bars

Kickbacks Gastropub Goozlepipe & Guttyworks creates a fantasy world steeped in class and decorative flair. Every shining and gleaming corner of this restaurant and bar reflects some part of the theme and further enhances the mood. The depth of their beer list is unsurpassed and the dining options are original and familiar at the same time. Kickbacks is not a place you come to only once.

After you’ve experienced this place, read over the menu, and perused their beer selection, you will return; often. Beneath the bar and dining are is the catacombs where they provide exclusive and private dining among an even richer atmosphere than the already fantastic main hall.

Our Thoughts on the Kickbacks Gastropub

We hope you like brass and copper as Kickbacks Gastropub is finely decorated with plenty of both. The dining area is walled with more than $10,000 worth of pennies (which, incidentally, plays havoc with your cell reception) but the entire steampunk feel of the place fits nicely in with the class of the property.

The bar celebrates the age of the building and the fine old days of brewing and dining. We loved the unusual vintage menu comfort food options(peanut butter and fluff sandwich!) sitting alongside some inventive creations that made us want to try everything on the list.

The Beer shakes were a delicious dessert but the real star of Kickbacks is the beer options. Seriously, over 1000 bottle choices and 200 beers on tap… We plan to come back and try them all, one at a time of course, that will give us time to experience everything on the menu as well!

The Garage Bar- Best King Street Bars

That angled corner lot on the corner of Post and King Streets may not feel like prime real estate to some, but for those in the know, an evening spent at The Garage is an evening spent with good people, great drinks and even better food! The full bar has a plethora of drink options, try something new or enjoy an old favorite.

The menu is better than some simple bar fare and a great place to enjoy dinner. The open-air feeling to the place makes sure you don’t feel too cooped up in the indoors and if you want, there is more seating outdoors where people-watching is free!

Our Thoughts on  The Garage Bar

Pulling up to The Garage on Post Street you immediately know it’s going to be a good experience. The restaurant and patio were full of smiling faces, staff and patrons alike. We really enjoyed the double tier tap system where they had an abundance of local brews as well as traditional beers on tap for the adventurous and for the conventional.

The bartender was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly, the drinks came quickly and we took our seats outdoors to enjoy the weather. The food was incredible for such a low-key spot and worthy of being considered a destination restaurant and not just a bar with kitchen service.

Once we were seated and fed, we saw why this place stays jumping until 3am, everyone just seems to be friendly and having fun. As the night wore on, more cars pulled in and it was like we witnessed the culmination of Jacksonville’s “last call” spot. Come experience The Garage for yourself.

Rogue Bar- Best King Street Bars

Perhaps because the outside of the bar looks dark and gritty, or maybe in spite of it, Rogue on King Street feels like the kind of place you’d better be careful around like you were entering some dark den of thieves, however nothing could be further from the truth. 

This place is nothing if not friendly, upbeat, and truly bright in its fun atmosphere. The packed house crowds on popular nights will tell you the same; Rogue Bar is a great place to spend the evening and toss back a few drinks. If you can toss the mason jar ring onto one of the bottles on the shelf, this shot is free!

Our Thoughts on the Rogue Bar

Entering Rogue, one feels like they are exiting the brightly lit world and entering a dark underbelly, and that’s something we especially appreciated about the decor in the place. Rough exposed brick walls, clean but rough hewn timber rafters, and the narrow footprint of the entire establishment just feels like the place needs a bar. 

Lo and behold, there it sits, beneath the marquee letters spelling out ROGUE, the bar is simple and the vast shelves behind the bartenders are just as endearingly modest in design that you feel like this is your friendly neighborhood basement bar, and maybe that’s exactly why we liked it so much. 

The rolling library ladder to reach the top shelves was a nice touch that added to the charm. Great bartenders, engaging patrons, tasty bar snack foods, and especially great bottles of premium whiskeys mean that we’ll be back to Rogue often, and we recommend the same to you.
