Plus, find out how Ariana Madix feels about *this* Vanderpump Rules friend’s role at Jax and Brittany’s new restaurant. (Hint: he’s very close to her!)
Jax Taylor seems to enjoy running a bar so much that it inspires him to sing. The Vanderpump Rules alum was doing something in a recent photo that Brittany Cartwright shared of him at their brand-new sports bar, Jax’s Studio City, that she had never seen him do before. (Hint: Something about that was really melodic.)
Just to refresh your memory, Jax and Brittany announced on their podcast, When Reality Hits with Jax and Brittany, that they were entering the bar industry back in August. I’m going to start a sports bar. At that time, Jax declared, “It’s going to be called Jax’s Studio City.” “On Monday, we began construction, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Finally, our neighborhood will have a sports bar.
He continued: “I know in the past I said that owning a bar is basically a marriage killer, but the difference is [Brittany is] involved just as much as I am. My wife is involved just as much as I am. We have 100% say in what is going on, and she is doing the decorating.”
In September, the venue opened its doors — and it looks like Jax has a blast every time he steps into his Studio City spot.
Jax Taylor does karaoke at Jax’s Studio City
In her recent Instagram Stories, Brittany shared a photo of her husband checking out a karaoke screen, surrounded by a crowd of bar-goers. In her caption, the Kentucky native wrote: “Been together 8 years and never saw Jax sing karaoke until tonight lol.”
Ariana Madix’s brother Jeremy Madix’s role at Jax’s Studio City
Karaoke isn’t the only perk at Jax’s Studio City. Visitors never know when they might run into a familiar Vanderpump Rules face. In October, Ariana Madix’s brother Jeremy Madix shared an Instagram post that showed him posing with Jax and Brittany.
“Had a great time guest bartending last night at [Jax’s Studio City],” he wrote. “Thanks for having me [Jax], can’t wait for the next one!”
Ariana included four clapping emojis in the comments. Her brother works at the venue as a guest bartender as well. Jax disclosed in an interview magazine that Jeremy painted in the style of Andy Warhol on the black and white walls of the sports bar.
Jax’s Studio City Serves Mamaw’s Beer Cheese
The venue also serves a particularly coveted menu item. In a recent Instagram Story, Brittany shared: “Mamaw’s beer cheese is finally here!!” and tagged Jax’s Studio City.
A photo shared a peek at said beer cheese, which has been a long time in the making. The couple originally hatched plans to sell the cheese, which is inspired by Brittany’s grandma’s recipe, in 2018. But from the looks of things, it was worth the wait.
