The Commons

Jake's Dilemma

Located between the secluded Riverside room and busy main area of Jake’s Dilemma, is The Commons. It’s a communal gathering space perfect for guests with FOMO (fear of missing out). You can enjoy a private area for your party while looking into the busy bar. The exposed brick walls, hard wood floors, high top tables and neon reading “what’s your dilemma” makes this space common ground for friends and coworkers alike.

Thanks so much for a wonderful party. We could not have asked for a nicer time. Staff was excellent, courteous and very helpful. We plan on having our company Christmas Party there in December.

The event was a huge success. The bar did an excellent job of providing great service to all those who came (it was very quick to get drinks at the bar). Thank you EDBM for helping to organize the event!

First of all, thank you to everyone that helped with the party. It was a big success with all of the guys and we had a great time celebrating the groom-to-be. Everyone enjoyed the food, music and of course the booze!
