Found Jacques by chance while staying at the Hotel Revere next door. Dropped in for a pre dinner drink. The decor is out of the past when gay bars were the prime home for gays before todays more open acceptance. Love the old nostalgic interior...More

Definitely a flamboyant, fun, feisty and festive spot to hang with the girls for a show! Saw lots of birthday parties and bachelorette parties. To reserve a table, book a few weeks to a month ahead. The bar is nothing special, but the cabaret more...More

Places like this probably won't be around in Boston forever, so go check it out. The staff is super friendly, fun fun shows, and a a generally great crowd. Go there and support them!

My friends and I went to Jacques for the New Year's Eve party that the bar was hosting. It was a blast, and was a huge bargain. For the 15 dollar cover we got front row seats to the drag show, a personal bottle of...More
