Despite its Times Square location, Jimmy's Corner possesses an invisible shield that repels tourists. That's why this dive is so dear to the locals. It's also owned by legendary boxing trainer and true New Yorker Jimmy Glenn and decorated with his massive stash of pugilist memorabilia. Moreover, an eternal happy hour keeps drinks in the $3 range; you won't find a more wallet-friendly spot in the area. And in addition to the blue-collar clientele, other cool people tend to stop by.

It drifts over the streets of midtown, glowing a bit orange and faintly emitting an old Rangers broadcast—the ghost of McHale’s. Times Square has been a sorrier spot since the development-driven demise of that agreeable watering hole, with its mediocre food but downmarket Deco charms.

Stax artists and jazz giants jockey for play on the jukebox at JIMMY'S CORNER, an old-school Times Square dive owned by boxing trainer Jimmy Glenn. It's a dandy spot, plastered with photos of pugilists like Ali, and you half expect to see Norman Mailer at one of the rickety stools. Sample track listing: " 'I've Got You Under My Skin,' By Who Else?" More »
