Time's Up for Le Black Jack

Posted by Amy / August 10, 2007

20070810_BlackJack.jpg

A couple of weeks ago The Mirror’s Johnson Cummins hipped us to, TIME’S UP, an upcoming rock night in at Le Black Jack in St-Henri. Only thing was that the “evening of the best in weird punk, psychedelic, garage, progressive, metal and more” hadn’t happened yet. So if I may pick up where JC left off…

Here’s the skinny:

• The DJs are killer, dropping everything from Fucked Up! to Chad and Jeremy. Several DJs take the wheels to drive the music throughout the night.
• The regulars are un-phased by the presence of the Ultra-hip.
• Beer is capital ‘C’ cheap.
• Black Jack’s décor is strip-club meets sports-bar. Ghetto fabulous if you dig televisions, mirrors, VLTs and irony.
• Bartender Celine pours stiff drinks with a kind smile. She works every Thursday.


People are saying that this night is great for kids who live in the South West. I’d go one metro stop farther and say that it’s worth the ride from just about anywhere in town.

Every Thursday. Le Black Jack. 3800 Notre Dame W.

When you say 'beer is cheap', do you mean beer is inexpensive, or beer is crappy?

I just rechecked the numbers: $1.75 bottled beer, $8.50 draft pitchers and $3.00 Bloody Caesars!!!!!!

I was going to comment that the decor itself is enough to convince me to go, but $1.75 for a beer seems to prevail.

hey,

Thanks for the great review! I'd like to add that Celine serves up a tasty (and generous!) gin and tonic for $3.75, and we're hoping to keep the cast of DJ's rotating as much as possible (with some "special" guests, too!)

weird punk!

Bon. Enfin. Quelque chose à faire dans mon coin.

On va me voir là. Et peut-être O Caresses si, après 5 drinks à 2$, je me trompe de porte après une pause cigarette ;-)

I think this DJ night is on its way to becoming a Montreal insitiution along the lines of the Tuesday night 'We Sold Our Souls for Rock n Roll' at the Casa Del Popolo...
Thoughts?

After Time's Up! people usually head next door to Restaurant A.A. for some Midnight Poutine...

Just in case there was any confusion, the actual address of Black Jack is 3814 Notre Dame Ouest, half a block east of rue St-Augustin. 3800 is the address of their offices next door.
