If you're not from NYC and don't know about Jimmy's Corner, you'd probably walk right by it. It is very unassuming and one of the best "just like home" dive bars I've been to. Because it's not a tourist trap (even though it's just on the outside of Times Square) tourists tend not to give it any thought. This is definitely a place for locals. During my visit, we hung out with some of NYC's finest firefighters (off-duty of course) and you immediately feel like one of the gang/a local (even if you really aren't). The drinks are cheap, cold and the scotch is smooth. Love the boxing ambiance. It's a place I could stay in and drink for hours.

Great julebox, great owner, great bartender, great prices, easy conversations! What more do you need? $8 for wine and a drink. Long live Jommy's Corner! This is where boxing fans find Heaven.

This place is on 44th street about 100 feet from the heart of Times Square. Why would anyone pay 5-10$ for a beer when you can walk 100 feet and get one for $3? Great environment and fast and friendly service. Always had a place to sit. Just walking around and looking at all the pictures of famous fighters is worth a visit.

We were in New York in July and stumbled upon Jimmy's on the first night - were there just about every night after that and it was sensational. Met Jimmy, his wife and son and they were just magic! Great atmosphere, history and value - best we found in New York!!! This is the type of experience that you really cherish long after the bright lights are forgotten!
