NYC Guide: Jimmy at The James Hotel
Aug 7 2014
I met some girlfriends out last night at Jimmy, which is the rooftop bar at The James Hotel in Soho. This was the first time I had ever been (despite having heard about it a million times), and I really liked it. The bar sits 18 stories up, so the view is phenomenal, and it only gets better as it gets darker and the city lights come up.
One of my friends and I both had “The Gallagher,” as seen below, which was one of their specialty cocktails. Really refreshing and delicious – if you like watermelon, that is! A great summertime drink.
We got there on the earlier side and snagged some sofas (before 7pm), and it got packed shortly thereafter. So – if you do plan on heading to Jimmy for a happy hour drink – don’t be too late. It’s definitely much better when you have seating. (And yes – there’s waitress service).
There is also an outdoor area, so take advantage while it’s still summer and head on over. I will definitely be back..especially for the nighttime view!
