Jimmy's Corner

140 W. 44th St. New York, NY 10036 | West 40s | 212-221-9510

Location Description:

Despite its Times Square location, Jimmy's Corner possesses an invisible shield that repels tourists. That's why this dive is so dear to the locals. It's also owned by legendary boxing trainer and true New Yorker Jimmy Glenn and decorated with his massive stash of pugilist memorabilia. Moreover, an eternal happy hour keeps drinks in the $3 range; you won't find a more wallet-friendly spot in the area. And in addition to the blue-collar clientele, other cool people tend to stop by. According to an interview we did with Mr. Glenn a couple year ago, "Mayweather, Holmes, Ali. The kid [Arturo] Gatti came in the other day, but I wasn't in."
