This place is unique, we walked through before leaving Belmont to have a look and will definitely be back. There was a nice little cigar lounge on the main floor. Outside there was a small patio with TV that was very cool. The upstairs bar...More

This was the old jail house in Belmont and it is definitely unique in many ways. The atmosphere is laid back and it has a Prohibition feel. The selection of alcohol is impressive to say the least and the beer selection is not shabby either....More

Yes, it was the original jail for the town (they even kept the cells) but spent a lot of money to turn it into the best watering hole in Belmont. They also have a cigar room on the second floor with the smoke-free bar on...More

We were visiting friends who live in Belmont and wanted to get a nightcap. So we stopped at the Jailhouse. Upon entrance the “hostess” was holding a baby and asked if we were members and shared the low price to join for a year. Or...More

This place is unique. It has a great vibe. Upstairs they serve drinks and you can order off the Old Stone menu next door. On the middle floor you can sit in a room where they serve drinks and people can smoke cigars.

Its cool that you have to pay at the door so it keeps partiers out but there is a cigar bar so the smoke was overwhelming to me. I can’t handle the smoke. And the bar area was extremely tight. I think they might be...More

This is a really neat idea and a cool spot to hide out for a drink or three. Decent beer selection. Good bourbon and liquor selection, as well as wine. Cigar room. Walk-in humidor. You can buy (and leave) your own bottle. It really is...More
