Cocktail Bar
Over the past 4 years Jack’s on Bernard has become a Kelowna staple known for their incredible selection of hand crafted cocktails and for the killer vibe that you experience as soon as you walk in the door. The menu is primarily composed of small plates with a couple larger dishes for those with big appetites.

Chef Konstantin Chakhnov’s goal was to have the culinary program match the elevated yet approachable feel of the cocktail menu. Jack’s is a partner restaurant of Salt & Brick with similar items popping up on each other’s menu.

Really cool place with lots of potential. The waitress dressed in a way too baggy hoody was ok, but not really professional or attentive.
Over all though would return

I would recommend for the amazing vibe. The winter wonderland was a great idea and brought life to the downtown streets I hope next year more restaurants do this in a partnership with each other. However, the drinks were pricey for the little amount you get but they were quite strong. I personally would love some less strong Christmas drink options at a more reasonable price. I appreciate the amount of liquor in each drink for the price but it would be nice to have a little more variety on how strong the drinks would be. Service was okay it was very very busy so definitely hard for the one server and one bartender to satisfy all 12 sections. But the girls were doing their hardest that’s for sure! I would definitely come back for the Christmas ambiance and for the new menu item that was some sort of bread dip. It tasted like Christmas stuffing!!

Love the ambiance to the place and the inventive drink menu. The food was lacking in flavour, portions were abysmal and it was far too expensive for what we got.

Went for the holiday makeover, Wonder Bar - definitely gets you in the spirit! Fun Christmas decor, drinks mixed well, food tasty, would recommend but note this cocktail bar is $$$

Unfortunately not the experience we were expecting. We made a reservation for 6 people but were given a table that only sat 4! After several reminders that we needed 2 more chairs, an extra chair was brought over. Very squishy and we were still short one chair. The waitress was inexperienced and the person who I think was the manager kept saying we don't have a lot of space (that's why we booked ahead!) and that he'd do his best to get us a chair. 30 minutes later and still no chair for our 6 party reservation. Really? By this time the 6th person arrived. Another patron at the bar could hear and see our plight so took it upon himself to get up, walk across the room and get an empty chair from another table. This man did not work there but he solved our problem. To make matters worse, it took 20 minutes before we were even asked what we would like to drink. The only reason we stayed is that there were 6 of us, and on a Saturday night it would have been unlikely to find another spot to go. We did enjoy the cocktails when we finally got them, and the two appies. Inexperienced staff and management that made excuses rather than problem solve to improve our dining experience.

From the moment we stepped in to closing we walked into an absolute winter wonderland and had the best time. This was my first time trying the new menu and drinks and it was the best I’ve ever had! Exceptional service by Jeremy, overall a really great time. Will definitely be back.

Winter wonder bar did not disappoint. The Christmas cheer in the bar was incredible. The drinks tasted as good as they sounded.

We had a great experience at Jacks!
The drinks were unique and delicious, the food was perfect for getting to try and share a few different options and the atmosphere was great! We went during the Christmas Winter Wonder Bar set up but we will return again even when the Christmas season is over. Thanks Jacks!

It appears they are trying to change their menu but are having issues executing the change. If you are interested in something other than a cocktail you may want to ask them what currently on the menu before you go.

Apothecary drinks were great. Unfortunately the pizzas were just ok...not a lot of flavour and was just missing something...i have a wood fired pizza oven at home. Much better...

Put some flavour in them Jack, and perhaps get the cheese a little singed

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Jack’s pizza and liquor. The service was impeccable and so was the food. Our meals were not only delicious but incredibly meticulous and how they were presented. The staff was very attentive and respectful. The atmosphere was inviting. We will definitely be back!

We were the only 2 people in there and our food took around 35 minutes to come. Food tasted great and server was very nice. Glad we tried it, probably won’t go back though.

The bartender was so excited about the cocktails he was making - went out of his way to explain the intricacies of one of the drinks after playing a subtle change in the drink requested. Very unique place that is a must return to!

Enjoyed that I could converse with my friend without too loud noise or music interference.
Appy food was very good however the one desert (Smores) offered was very poor. I liked the combination except for the base on flatbread - not good.
Stay with tradition: graham cracker or crumb base please. More Nutella and use of large marshmallows would have kicked it up a notch. If one dessert offered it should be a great one. Even if it's a gelato or a special ice cream.
Fun decor. Will be back to try some of the other interesting menu items.

This is a great little spot in downtown Kelowna. The food, drinks, and service were fantastic. It's a little noisy for intimate conversation but it was a great choice for ladies' night.

One of my favorite spots in town: people that work there make you feel like at home! Always great ambience and Amazing food! Cocktail list is impressive. Great happy hour too. The only problem I've ever experienced is that it can get quiet hot there.
