A Classic NYC Bar, 18 Stories Up.
18 stories high atop The James Hotel in Soho, JIMMY is a contemporary interpretation of the classic pub, with a 1970’s New York twist. Created and curated by David Rabin and Johnny Swet, the atmosphere is intimate and refined, with lingham wood floors, swank modular furniture, dark cinnamon glazed tile walls, and a working fireplace – all surrounded by 14’ windows with panoramic views of Midtown, Wall Street, the Hudson River, and the bridges spanning the East River.
Unlike typical rooftop bars, JIMMY is a year-round destination. In colder months, guests gravitate towards the inside conversation pit – a freeform lounge area with plush upholstered seating, midcentury era Arco lamps, and exotic wood side tables. In warmer weather, the experience spills onto the roof deck, where guests can enjoy chaise lounges, and unparalleled city views.
Classic American Inspirations
Cocktails, served from a freestanding central bar, are based on classic American inspirations, each expertly prepared using syrups and bitters made in-house, fresh-squeezed juices, and garnishes and herbs picked fresh from the hotel’s own organic garden.
JIMMY was conceived and developed by hospitality veterans Johnny Swet, and David Rabin, with a design by three-time James Beard Award winner Thomas Schlesser.
