I really enjoyed Jimmy's Corner Bar while in New York for the Cotto-Margarito fight.Remember,Jimmy's take CASH only and drinks are $3 a pop.Great atmosphere and easy to get to.On 44th just a block west of Times Square.
The puck and wings,on 32nd (next to the Gardens) is also a must on fight night.Drop in for a few before the fights.

Cheers lads, I'm there with the wife and kids for a week, got one night to do my own thing. Jimmy's corner is favourite at the moment.

The place is one of the oldest bars in NYC, has an amazing collection of old fight photos all over the place and on Thursday - Sat nights the bartender is Bob Bozic, former heavyweight fighter, best buddie and sparring partner for Chuvalo and Bonavena and a guy that fought Larry Holmes in MSG.
