The Warehouse Bar has been around for about 10 years and is just as the name states—a warehouse turned into a local pool hall and music establishment. Local bands play on a regular basis with American Pool Association sanctioned tournaments weekly. Every week they have mixed men and women or “Jack and Jill” tournaments, buy-in tourneys, karaoke, open mic and just some good, laid back, fun entertainment for the 21 and over crowd.
The drink: A nice sized area with the bar and regular tables awaits you as you kick back for some good music while they serve you longneck bottled beer, beer by the can, draft, pitcher specials and nightly specials. You can bring your own liquor and there are plenty of set ups available ($2-$6) depending on your choices.
The décor: Basically, it’s an old warehouse turned into one of the best local neighborhood bars you will find in the Jackson metro area. Features plenty of pool tables —eight to be exact—a nice size dance floor, a corner stage area for the band and plenty of tables and chairs. As soon as you walk in the door you are going to feel right at home. They also have several video games and an internet audio juke box.
The crowd: No need to worry about dressing up or dressing down as just about anything goes. The crowd usually consists of college students from Hinds to the regular older die hard pool players or music buffs. The Warehouse has something for everyone in a relaxed, safe and enjoyable atmosphere. You will definitely see someone you know or have a chance to meet some new people while dancing to some good local classic rock or country bands. Be sure to sign up for one of their pool tourneys and learn the game as you go or for the serious player, catch one of their buy-in house tourneys.
The service: A good bartender and table service helps make your night a relaxing and fun getaway. While there’s an occasional $10 cover for some special events, you get in free most nights which will make for good fun without much expense. Their short-order style bar menu allows you to stay at your table and get some munchies served up along with your beverages.
The sounds: The Warehouse features local bands Friday through Sunday and an internet video jukebox for the nights there aren’t live bands. Any type of music is available on the jukebox and the karaoke Friday nights lets you strut your stuff. Sunday night is open mic night with Mike and Marty and it can get wild and crazy with those two as you never know who might drop by to sit in with them.
The food: Their short-order kitchen serves up some pretty good burgers, fries, jalapeño peppers, cheese sticks, corn dogs, and chicken fingers baskets ($3-$6), so no need to worry about breaking the bank on a night out. They also sell pool cues and logo t-shirts for the diehard pool player and Warehouse lover.
The bottom line: The Warehouse is not style over substance. It is just a great place to come in and have a good time. Plenty of pool playing, great dancing, just plain hanging out or meeting up with friends. If you want to sing the night away, sit in with a band, or take on someone in pool—check out The Warehouse, with plenty of good fun and entertainment at a minimal price.
