Jack’s Backyard



  • Best of Big D: Best Gay Bar (2010)


We hesitate to call Jack’s a gay bar, considering the diversity of its Oak Cliff clientele. But there’s no denying Jack’s gay-friendly vibe and lineage: co-owner Kathy Jack spent more than 20 years working for Caven Enterprises, owner of Oak Lawn’s most successful gay establishments. While the twentysomething gay crowd parties and poses along Cedar Springs Road, a mature crowd has discovered the charm of Jack’s: a rollicking gravel patio with live music, a cozy-cool lounge, and an inclusive crowd void of pretense.
