From the team that brought New York City Pebble Bar, Ray’s and Georgia Room, comes a new neighborhood watering hole, Jac’s on Bond. Located in a landmark 1831 townhouse amongst the iconic cobblestones of NoHo’s Bond Street, the tucked-in haunt has centuries of history with a storied past that intertwines a variety of commerce with creatives, hooligans, gambling, and progressive protests.
Jac’s on Bond takes shape in the former home of The Smile, an Authentic Hospitality cafe where the group laid roots and built a community of loyal regulars and friends, including the beloved ‘Mayor of Bond Street,’ Jack Champlin. For over 60 years, Champlin was the cornerstone of his neighborhood and the personification of what it means to be a true New Yorker; Jac’s on Bond is named lovingly in homage to his enigmatic presence and kind-hearted, downtown spirit. With its centuries-old history and Authentic Hospitality’s personal relationship with Bond Street and its residents, Jac’s on Bond simultaneously evokes the past and the present, honoring the timelessness of change itself, in New York City.
