However when he was asked what he thought of it, Joe gave a thinly-veiled response and said: ‘Uhm, I liked other places…’
He continued: ‘Let’s just say it wouldn’t be my first go-to.
‘Uhm, yeah but you know, for us growing up when we were touring in the States we were too young to of and have a pint after the show and kick it with our friends so we would go to the only place open late which was a Waffle House.
‘They serve breakfast items all day and we would sit there and talk and it became more of this safe place for us, so there’s other places like that for anyone in the world.’
The comments come as the Jonas Brothers visited another pub in the Capital, however they did not confirm whether it was a Wetherspoons.
Joe and his brothers Nick, 30, and Kevin, 35, popped into the watering hole for a ‘celebratory pint’ after discovering that their New York show had sold out.
Joe began the video by revealing that they were in the pub for a quick drink before going to film Chicken Shop Date with Amelia Dimoldenberg.
The boys then muse over what their drink of choice will be, with their pal Greg Garbowsky revealing he would be opting for a pint of Guinness.

Indecisive Kevin admitted he wasn’t sure and asked his brothers for suggestions while Nick revealed he would be having a pint of Camden Hells larger.
One of them chimed in that they like Neck Oil IPA [Indian Pale Ale], but Kevin stood firm on his decision to order a pint of Guinness.
Kevin joked: ‘Hells for the boys!’
While Joe upped the ante and asked: ‘Baby Guinness anyone?’, which is a shot made with coffee liqueur and Irish cream.
