Within this building, we house Jackson’s only classically inspired craft cocktail lounge alongside a landmark theater turned live music venue. The Rose and Pink Garter Theater were built out of an excitement for creating the best experience possible – be it a perfectly crafted cocktail or an inspiring musical performance. We do this for the love of every element of what we do, from the beauty of a well-made drink, the impact of soulful hospitality, and the love of guiding a guest through an exceptional nightlife experience. We truly hope you enjoy your time here.
The Pink Garter Theatre originated in 1959 by Paula Jeffries, a richly flamboyant woman described by one source as “the most beautiful ugly woman I’ve ever met in my life.” The theater was built to host Western-style plays to attract tourists during the summer, while community theater and events filled it the rest of the year. It lay dormant for ten years until a theater company started up there and ran for two years from 2007 to 2008.
The Pink Garter is a 450 capacity space, that will serve as an incredible late-night venue.
