As the sun goes down over Newtown, you’ll likely spot a bouncer guarding a fairly nondescript door belonging to a fairly nondescript butcher shop façade. Don’t be fooled by this tactical misdirect, because behind that door lies one of Newtown’s most happening bars. Emulating a 50’s era flophouse or speakeasy, Earl’s Juke Joint brings an authentically classic vibe to the comparatively futuristic King Street. Posters of mid-20th-century jazz and rock-and-roll legends adorn the walls, and people are packed tight in ornate booths or between worn wooden high tables. Ordering an Old-Fashioned has never felt so right.
