Jailhouse Saloon: A Thirsty Thursday destination

Posted by

By: Jimmy Jacks

Located on 929 5th Avenue in Coraopolis, Jailhouse Saloon is a favorite of students at Robert Morris University and an underrated place to visit on a Thursday night.

Per the establishment’s website, Jailhouse Saloon “has all your favorites, including a variety of hoagies, hotdogs, salads, pizza, and the famous Jailhouse Gyro.”

On price alone, the place is loaded with value.  With Domestic Drafts, Rum and Cokes, and Vodka and Cranberry for just 93¢ on Thursday from 9:30-11:30 p.m., it’s hard not to consider going out to Coraopolis for an evening.

Atmosphere wise, the second floor is where the action is.  Upon entering, a DJ booth is present.  The bar is on the far side of the room and can get crowded.  It definitely takes a while to get a drink or two, so it is highly recommended that you arrive at the start of the special and get your fill before the rush comes in.  With a dance floor and tables to gather around, it has just enough space for you to find a place to relax or dance.  The bathrooms are large enough to accommodate you, and more importantly, they are clean.

Whereas quality is concerned, the place has its charm, but it lacks in a few areas.  Recent renovations have made the place look like more than a complete dive bar, but the bartenders can get short and temperamental as the rush picks up.

Overall, this is a place that we would definitely recommend.  It’s a nice balance of enjoying a cheap night out without feeling like you’re in an unsafe or dirty dive bar.
