    Chicago is a very nice city. The wife and I are going there in November to see Ireland beat the All Blacks for the 1st time in the NFL's Chicago Bears Soldier Field.

    It's a cool place. Kind of a mini-museum. It's the sort of bar you'd want to spend a weekday afternoon at.

    Jimmys corner is great

    I went there the weekend of Klitschko vs Jennings and for a wrestlemania event

    Very cheap for the city, first round was 16 for 2 beers and 2 shots

    Love the memorabilia and always good people

    met a nephew of chuck wepner there and talked boxing with him

    a little tight if you cant get a bar seat is the only draw back

    Mrkoolkevin sums it up best Mcvey. I've been to Jimmy's many times and it's always best before a fight at madison square garden or now the Barclay center in Brooklyn. No frills, tight space with decent boxing memorabilia along the walls. Although the best boxing memorabilia was the LIC crabhouse for my money which sadly closed last year.
    Jimmy's is great because it is in the heart of Times Square so you can literally check off a lot of sight seeing and jump in to a throwback bar instead of a tourist trap.

    Since it hasn't been mentioned, you could also go to Jack Dempsey's for a big fight. I saw Teddy Atlas there once.

    Really? It closed in 1974 when Atlas was 18 years old.

    You were 4 in 1974,according to your personal information .:think

    It was last year. And I was born in 85. It's an operating business.

    No, but I have been to the general area. Sounds like it is near Broadway, about 10 blocks from Madison Square Garden and a few blocks from Times Square and the Port Authority (Grand Central Station)

    I remember when Jimmy Glenn trained Terrence Ali and Howard Davis. Is he still alive?

    Are we talking about the original Jack Dempsey's here?

    Your details say the following.

    I was there with some friends who were posters from here before Martinez-Cotto. I didn't actually go to the fight, but it was the first and only time I had been there.

    It was good. A bit tight when it's crowded.

    Yep. As others have said this pretty much sums it up.
    :good

    And you are correct about the "reasonably priced" part. I had forgotten that - it was ridiculously cheap for an NYC bar in my experience.

    I have no idea where that age came from. There's a popular bar near K-town where big fights are shown, called Jack Dempsey's. I think it's on 34th.
