Gatsby's is located in Carbondale, Illinois, the home of Southern Illinois University. Southern Illinois University is known as a major party school and Gatsby's fits right in. Gatsby's is a two level (two level tandem, not up and down) bar that isn't absolutely disgusting to be in. There are billiards, drinks, darts, a dance floor, food, and two bars. The place is frequented by sororities and fraternities, so if you aren't into that scene, I would definitely suggest going somewhere else. However, if you are into guys beating each other up, there is usually a frat fight after closing every weekend at Gatsby's . They do it just because they are guys and drunk. Anyway, Gatsby's has a prime location, within walking distance of the university, reasonable drink rates, good selection, plenty of parking and seating.
