JIMMY is the perfect spot in Soho for an after-work or pre/post dinner cocktail, set 18 floors high atop The James Hotel. If no tables are available via OpenTable, there is likely still room to grab a cocktail at our bar, and seating does open up all the time. For larger party inquiries or private events, please email us at events@jimmysoho.com.
Jimmy is a contemporary interpretation of the classic pub, with a 1970’s New York twist. The atmosphere is intimate and refined, with lingham wood floors and swank modular furniture – 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. In warmer weather, the experience spills onto the roof deck, where guests can enjoy chaise lounges, and unparalleled city views.

Great location, good vibes.
Staff should be more polite to their guests, be more welcoming, there’s no need to front. We are here to have a great time - and to spend $$.

Jimmy is a great rooftop bar in NYC. Stunning view at the 1WTC. Cocktails are expensive and served in plastic...

Was a good time, I’ve been before. Bar closed 1/2 hour early on a holiday weekend which was disappointing. Security was a bit rude trying to clear out the guests. Service at the table was a bit slow. Other than that, great place to have a drink with friends and enjoy the views.

My boyfriend and I went to jimmy at the James go see the game one day. Although the television is relatively small, out experience was stellar. It’s your typical rooftop vibe of the city. Just a bit more relaxed and welcoming. The bartenders were sweet, the security and doorman were really funny and personable. Drinks were median priced but delicious! We got a nice view of the city and had a great time

Everyone we encountered who worked at this place was rude. The man checking reservations before the elevator was rude to us and to another guy who was a guest at the hotel trying to go up for a drink. The girl who seated us was very rude and snobby. Our server was very rude, too. It was crowded, chaotic, uncomfortable and we did not enjoy our visit. The weather was beautiful, so we left and went to another rooftop bar where it was also crowded, but the staff was cheerful and the service was good. We aren't sure why the staff at Jimmy treated us that way. We were dressed nicely, fit in with the atmosphere and acted appropriately. I wish we had our $50 back that we paid for 2 warm glasses of Chardonnay.

We are from Germany and were visiting NYC for 5 days. This evening we wanted to celebrate into my husbands birthday together with friends and were therefore looking for a bar that is open until at least 1am. We were driving from Columbus Circle all the way down to the James Hotel and even if we had a reservation through Open Table the staff at the door was unfriendly and started to argue with us. We finally made it to the roof top, but drinks were expensive and quarter to 12 they asked us to order the final round of drinks. We told them that we have a birthday to celebrate and they made us order another round and promised that we can stay (because also the homepage said "open until 1am"). 5 minutes past 12 they told us to leave - we had full glasses in front of us with drinks 20$ each. From that moment on they came back to our table every 5 minutes. We finally left very angry. Bad experience! Total rip-off!

Jimmy was EVERYTHING! Thanks for the reservation actually meaning something. They had a beautiful spot on the roof waiting for us. It was lovely and I was a star for my LA friends. Didn't hurt that the weather was flawless. Dinner downstairs at David Burke was equally wonderful.
One note, tried to make OpenTable reservations for dinner and system wouldn't allow because I had Jimmy 2 hours earlier. Not sure why you can't have drinks at 7, dinner @9?

Service not very organized. Drinks are overpriced and food is very average. Not enough speakers outdoor so you barely hear the music. The best thing about this place is the drinks, enjoying the nice weather and the sunset view by the pool.

The view is amazing and it was not as busy as some other skybars we went to, so we could really relax and enjoy the view. The cocktails and the food were great.

We booked the table for dinner, when we came to the place it was only a bar (with a very nice roof top view). No tables, only lounge seating and bar seating. Not good for food, only for drinks (expensive but very well made)!

You can just go to Jimmy for a photo on the roof top and leave but if you have time grab a cocktail, a cheese platter and enjoy. Great looking bar, busy with after work groups so book to secure a seat and have a champagne cocktail "French kissing in the USA".

Our service was absolutely horrible. It Took her 15 minutes to seat is with a reservation, 20 minutes for her to take our drink order, another 20 to get our drinks, and our food took 40 minutes. I also ordered the check 3 separate times and I watched the waitress talk to other employees and was in no rush to get us our check. I had heard great things about this place but I was very disappointed in the service.

It was the same issue as Monarch. We booked a table through Opentable and when we got there, apparently we didn't have a reservation because we didn't call to confirm our table. Good thing the bouncer was gracious enough to let us in since it wasn't crowded yet. Our bartender didn't smile at all while serving us although he did make a good cocktail.

I love this bar. Is it expensive? Yes. Are you paying for that view? Yes! But what a view! A 360
View of NYC that is truly gorgeous. Great in the summer but I would definitely sit inside
Now that the weather is getting cooler. I didn't eat here but I'm sure the nibbles are also good

while we enjoyed the rooftop experience, it took almost 30 mins before anyone helped us and took our drink order. We had to ask 4 times and even walked up to the bar to see if we could get help. Once our server came, it was better but not sure why on a weekday night it should be slow.

We went for my husband birthday. First we had to look for the hostess, who then made us wait forever while our table was being cleaned" ... but she never came back. After a while, we went to sit at the bar since no one seemed to care. The bartender was impatient and rude. Cocktails were served in unclear plastic glasses. We were so disappointed we did not even try the food. We finished our drinks and went to another place in the neighborhood where we knew we would get better atmosphere, service and quality.
