what a bar - from a geordie from NE England
By phoebe31 on 2/15/2008
We discovered this bar on our second visit to New York when we walked out of an 'Irish Bar' in Times Square and headed back home to the Algonquin - if it hadn't been on the same street we'd have missed it. What a find. It had everything for us - seriously good jukebox, cool atmosphere and staff, fabulous pictures on the walls, reasonable prices, unpretentious, old regulars, young regulars, some business types, no tourists (apart from us). Became our regular bar after the first night. And Mr Glenn was the icing on the cake. What a gent and what a storyteller. I'd never heard of him before so I'm not starstruck, just thought he was a nice bloke and a good host! Would go back the minute we get back to New York (hopefully) even if we don't stay at the Algonquin along from there. We loved it.
Best Bar in NYC

I've been to Jimmy's a couple of times, but it is such a great place. Great prices, great people, great attitude, great location! I'm not really a sports person, but you don't need to be to go hang out at a sports bar. I definitely recommend this place to everyone who visits NYC. It is the real spirit of NY.
Oasis in Midtown!

Get out of the crush and attitude of the other bars and have a COLD beer at Jimmy's. Great photos and Jazz jukebox. Friendly staff, Jimmy's usually there, make sure to talk to him if you are a fight fan. He trains boxers at the local gym. Regulars, fans, and some tourists drinking and yakking, good prices. I'm in NYC often and regularly at Jimmy's.

Jimmys has to be the most welcoming bar in NYC, everybody gets a hello from jimmy himself & made welcome whether you want 1 drink or to stay all night. The bar staff are quick & always make sure you have a fresh cold beer on the bar. If you want a drink without all the attitude of other bars then you have to go to Jimmy's.
