PLEASE READ AND SHARE! This has been shared on all major social sites!My first time ever going to the Juke Joint Bar and Grill in Las Vegas was early this morning, Saturday, August 16, 2014. I was very disgusted and left with a little hurt and anger in my heart due to the service received at the front door. A friend that lives nearby told me to meet them there to see if they were still serving food. I drove all the way from Summerlin mind you. We got there shortly before 5am this morning. My friend has been to this bar and grill before, it is open 24 hours. As we approached the establishment there were African American ppl standing at front door and others walking away. We got to the door to enter and a bald heavier set white man (dressed in security from my view) "cracked" the door open and told us the establishment was closed. He also told the same thing to the ppl walking behind us, as well as ppl that were standing in front. Everyone was African American just to confirm the setting. The environment on the outside of bar was very calm and posed no reason to deny service or tell this group of ppl your establishment was closed. There was lively music playing in the background, but the security was purposely blocking the view into the bar by only cracking the door open. There was also enough cars in establishment parking lot to indicate they were not closed. Also the building lights, signs on outside indicated they were not closed as well. Why would you open the door and leave door unlocked if you were closed? Just turn the lights out and put up ur "CLOSED" sign.I'm not sure if this bar is only open to select public, and I wasn't aware this was a "members only" bar and grill. What took place by the security at that front door was very unprofessional, hurtful and personally I feel it was racist. I even goggled the establishment in the parking lot because I was in such disbelief that we were being treated like this by an "open to the public" 24 hour establishment in the year 2014. I will never come to the Juke Joint again, and I will tell everyone I know and don't know about this horrible experience. Spearmint Rhino gladly took our money with no problems and treated us like every other human being that walked up to their Establishment.I will also be doing more research on this establishment so that I can write a letter to the owner, Better Business Bureau and a few other entities that may need to investigate this matter. If anyone else was turned away around the above time and on this date please feel free to contact me. email@example.com
I Am a north las Vegas local and this place is my favorite place to grab a bite and a pint
Watch out if using credit card or debit card they will charge 50 cents mercantile fee. First time I went there they didn't tell me but going there again another person told me. The business should pay the fee and not pass it along to the customer, I believe credit card companies actually pay the businesses something for the use of their credit cards.
they have great food. good drink choices and the food is way affordable
Finally found penny slots in a neighborhood bar! And won!
I work at a high end Las Vegas Strip Casino, and stop at Five Star tavern after work to unwind. There are several bars around that Five Star has the best playing slot machines. I love to play Wolf Run and They are the only place off the LV strip by my house that offers it! Greta games to play. Love it!
The bartenders at Five Star are as good as any in Clark County. Never had a bad experience with any food item.
Wow created at the door. Just here for a quick lunch and drink. I was in and out in 30 mins.
Didn't understanding the penny shots but the bartender was so nice in explaining how to. I ended up winning $100. Thanks Five Star!
I visit the Five Star Tavern a few times a week to relax and play a little video poker. I have enjoyed coming here for years. The staff is great, the location is clean, the drinks are strong and the machines are loose. Five Stars for this Tavern!
