Venue Setting

Eighteen stories high atop The James Hotel in SoHo New York, JIMMY is a contemporary interpretation of the classic pub, with a 1970’s New York twist. 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.
 
The atmosphere at JIMMY is intimate and refined, with lingam 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.  It can be a quiet place for a drink on a cold night in February, or a lively scene at the pool on a summer Saturday or late night on weekends.
 
Due to the influence of Swet and Rabin - who is also a partner in Café Clover, The Lambs Club and The Skylark and was known for co-creating the nightclub Lotus - JIMMY at The James has become a must-do for those visiting, or calling New York City home. 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 out onto the roof deck, where guests can enjoy chaise lounges, and unparalleled city views.
 
Open to guests of The James Hotel throughout the day, JIMMY at The James comes alive from 3pm, 7 days a week. In particular, the JIMMY is renowned for their fabulous pool parties which are always fun, relaxed affairs taking place on Saturdays and Sundays throughout summer. JIMMY at The James also has an extensive DJ program making it the perfect place to watch the sun go down as you take in the panoramic views of the city.
 
Cocktails, served from a freestanding central bar, are basic 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. Partner and Mixologist Johnny Swet takes charge of the cocktail menu which is as inventive as it is inspired. Local favorites include the ‘Warhol Vesper’ which is a perfect mix of Plymouth Gin, Zu Bison Grass Vodka, Lillet Rosé and finished with a Lemon Twist and the ‘Double Down’ with Bonded Old Gran-Dad Bourbon, Simple Syrup, Laird’s Bonded Apple Brandy, Orange and Lemon Twists and Angostura Bitters. Delicious share plates and light bites are sourced from David Burke Kitchen, also located in The James.
