Krist's Review:
My experience so far has been that the guys who show up for ladies' night are scarier than the ladies - and Jokers is no exception. Yes, there were plenty of mullets and mustaches and wifebeaters and bandanas to go around among the males in the crowd. Wednesdays and Fridays are ladies' night at Jokers, where ladies drink free rails and taps from 8 to close. The women were drunk and dancing and getting freaky on the pole and platform, but there were few that were too scantily clad or outright naked tonight. We were surrounded by wood paneled and mirrored walls, and even the bar has wood paneling. The music was loud, but not too loud, as the men and women rocked out mostly to the sounds of eighties and early nineties hair metal bands. When not occupied with drinking dancing, Jokers also offers pool, foosball, darts, and electronic gaming for the enjoyment of the masses. Saddest and most inadequate are the bathrooms, which can only be occupied by one person at a time each. Of course, this means a line outside the women's room on ladies' night. Drink prices seem mostly on par with those of any bar downtown, meaning there is little to set Jokers apart other than the women on ladies' night. I think for now on I avoid any place I know has ladies' night that night.

You might like Jokers if:
You're into dive bars that charge as much for drinks as downtown bars.

You might not like Jokers if:
You don't like mullets or wood paneling.
