Jake's Saloon is a truly Texas venue located on Victorian Main Street in Calvert, TX just 30 miles north of Bryan/College Station and 60 miles south of Waco on Highway 6. Calvert is known for its old Western feel and Victorian architecture. Once housing the world’s largest cotton gin the town is surrounded by lush pastureland dotted with roaming cattle and vast farmlands coming to life each year with rows of white cotton and golden corn.
Our venue offers two connecting spaces that perfectly accommodate an event filled with dining, outdoor conversation and boot-shuffling dancing. Jake’s itself was once a general store and opens up through the courtyard to a back warehouse that was rumored to be a foundry where the trains unloaded goods to be dispersed to local mercantiles.
The neighboring Adoue Building was built in 1884 for the Collat, Adoue and Risser Dry Goods Store. It later became the Calvert City Bank and still houses the original Victorian teller's cage. From 1963 until 2005, it was the home of The Boll Weevil Antiques owned by Sallie and Wesley Anderson.
The eclectic space is decorated with mounts harvested all over the world giving a rustic, yet vintage feel to any wedding or event. It offers the original long wooden bar from Jake's Saloon which was originally housed across the street and still holds the bullet holes from that rough and rowdy time period.
