At this veritable shrine to boxing, the walls are lined with fight posters, photos and other personal effects that owner and professional trainer Jimmy Glenn has pasted up over nearly thirty years (look for the shots of Jimmy with Ali). The house drink, Jimmy's Hurricane, is an intriguing blend of spiced rum, juices and amaretto, but it's a good idea to stick to beverages with no more than two ingredients. The crowd is a heady mix of Times Square regulars and media slummers—estimated tourist factor: less than five percent. The music's always good (the jukebox is a motherlode of Staxx), the beer is always cold and Jimmy himself is usually on hand keeping it real.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
