Whiskey Jakes is closed!!!! All I can say is Sorry about your luck! Did you really think you could come into Granite and trash talk the residents and then in turn expect us to spend our money in your bar? Or better yet maybe you should have hired bartenders who knew what the hell they were doing and wernt giving all of your alcohol away for free?? Anyway we tried telling you that you wouldn't make it 6 months, and guess what??? WE WERE RIGHT!!! So now you can take your uppity ass back to St. Louis!!! Better luck next time MORON!!! Word to the wise. When opening up a business and expecting it to succeed it may not be wise to bad mouth the potential customers by calling them trash.

Anyone with half a brain knew that bar would fail just like the other 4 or 5 that have tried opening there.

I don't know who is a bigger moron the people on here that thought it was really the owner that was badmouthing the residents of Granite City or the owners that thought a business would succeed in that location. The only business that did good at all out there was mac & micks solely because they had an established clientele that kept them open. That local just needs to be torn down.

It wasn't the owner, it was the "bartenders". They came on here and started trashtalking before they even had the doors open. And YES, it really was the bartenders. The owners actually were stupid enough to hire nasty, foul-mouthed, ill-tempered, dishonest ratchet bitches who didn't have a clue how to tend a real bar. Too bad, so sad,.... not. LOL. Karma must suck for them.

The name is one reason it wasnt a hit. This town loves Jacobmeyers and refer to it as Jakes. We did try to warn the owners when they came on here asking for name ideas.

A stupid thought! People didnt like Jakes,, their choice to go there or not. Not the citys responsibility to "keep" a business a float if the ship is going down. As far as "H",,,,also a persons choice. Not my problem.

I was a customer there. It wasn't all the bartenders. The good ones left early. They stopped selling food, and never paid they're employees. He probably used this as a tax write off. Judging by his past, everything he touches turns to shit. So, don't blame all the employees.

The guy that opened that joint up has run at least 3 business's into the ground in the last 2 years alone. He clearly needs to find some new ways to invest his handed down money!

F@ck u! It would be one thing If that business was locally owned and operated. But it wasn't. They were from St. Louis. And didn't care for the people of Granite City. They thought we were trash and then turned around in the same breath and expected us to spend our money in their establishment. Pretty ignorant If you ask me and the fact they closed down is in my opinion what the deserved. And I am entitled to my opinion. So YOU CAN SHOVE THAT UP YOUR ASS! Have a nice day!

You are clearly a moron if you want to argue semantics - it is actually located in the unincorporated area of Chateau township ... blah blah blah...or Pontoon ... or Granite City ... does it matter where specifically the site is located when the last thing this blighted community needs is ANOTHER vacant building?!? That is really the best you can come up with?

My advice to you is to quit smoking your Krystal ...
