Jailhouse Rock

Trenton, Illinois, barely qualifies for Metro East inclusion, but it's closer than Memphis when you need an Elvis fix. Located in a huge former community center in Trenton's tiny downtown (about fifteen miles west of O'Fallon off Highway 50), Jailhouse Rock provides some of the coldest beer in the metro area — and so much more. Need a new pair of Elvis earrings? They have 'em. Friday-night karaoke? Of course. Wedding ceremony conducted by an Elvis impersonator? Covered. When there isn't a blue-suede brouhaha (such as Uncle Jesse's annual Christmas jam) afoot, Jailhouse Rock doubles as a friendly neighborhood bar. Comfortable and relaxed, with great service, free fresh popcorn, iced beer mugs and plenty of conversation that goes beyond whether the King is still alive.
