If you really want to get a sense of the local scene, cross the bridge and come on over to Union Publick House, “the only dive bar in Jim Thorpe.”
It’s the perfect place to go get a beer (over 80 in stock), shoot some pool, throw some darts, listen to some tunes on the jukebox (or the occasional live band), get some grub and relax in this ugly joint that screams awesome 1970s basement.
There’s a lunch menu, a dinner menu, and even a late night menu-it’s the only place you’re gonna get a bite to eat until 1am. The menu is filled with burgers, wings, and things you’re not going to find anywhere else, like the build your own grilled cheese, deviled eggs three ways, and buffalo chicken po’ boys.
It’s open 7 days a week so you can hit the bar whatever day or night works for you. Their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/unionpublickhouse
Be sure to check out the excellent weekly specials:
Monday=wing night & free pool
Tuesday=piano night with Dave Westrip
Thursday= Burger & Trivia night
Friday & Saturday= Happy Hours
Sunday=Brunch Day! Specials and the BEST bloody mary around.
Smoking is allowed after 9pm, FYI. Like we said, you get a taste of the local scene – we love this place!
