You, Too, Can be Part of the Café Society!

Jimmy-NY-Mag-Postcard-FrontMany of our frequent patrons know about the best kept secret spot in all the East Village, our Backroom! However, we’re basking in the spotlight as Woody Allen’s latest film, Café Society, prominently features the space, all decked out to look like a 1930s Jazz Club (additional scenes feature our dining room).

We’re taking advantage of the photographic publicity to give our Backroom a bit of a facelift: Now you can have your party here, too! Whether it’s for birthdays, holidays or some other special occasion, you can book now for the coming months (reservations via email). We have both themed party and open bar options.

Or if you’re looking for your business, we have availability Monday-Friday until 5PM for company meetings (with or without lunch). Located in the heart of the East Village, we’re perfectly located for your company get-togethers.

We invite you to enjoy being part of the Jimmy’s No. 43 Café Society!

What We’re Loving Right Now in Beer and Food

Fall is just around the corner, meaning seasonal beers are coming your way. There are a couple breweries we are featuring on tap this week, and we’re loving what they’re doing! First up is the newly opened Interboro Spirits & Ales, the first brewery/distillery to open in NYC. Right now we have their Bushburg on draft, a perfect Pilsner for these final hazy lazy days of summer. We’re also enjoying the newest beers by Jeff O’Neil (f/of Peekskill Brewing), whose Industrial Arts brews we’ve be rotating through.

As for food, our fall seasonal menu features farm-to-table and butcher’s cuts, including our amazing “Best Burger” with a custom grind from Fleisher’s Craft Butchery. You can enjoy more in burgers starting next month, when George Motz has a weekly burger pop-up every Thursday night.

And for our vegetarian friends, we’ll feature a separate pop-up on Sundays through September as Chef Zad Farahvash of Cafe Zarathustra brings some Persian flair to our kitchen.

Speaking of cafes… Our Cafe Society Backroom is open for your fall and holiday bookings! Be sure to email us with your party needs, as slots are already booking up into the new year.


New Brew from Industrial Arts: Tools of the Trade Tapping This Week!

IndustrialArts_JeffONeilThe wait is over! Our good friend, Jeff O’Neil (former head brewer at Peekskill) has been working for the past year to open his own brewery in Rockland County (Hudson Valley)… and the first brew is available this weekend at Jimmy’s No. 43! We just received “The Tools of the Trade,” a pale ale just released by Jeff’s new brewery, Industrial Arts.

Jeff has been a frequent guest on Beer Sessions Radio (pictured right with Host Jimmy Carbone and Industrial Arts GM Sofia Barbaresco, herself formerly of Broken Bow). Industrial Arts, is slated to open this fall in the Garnerville Arts and Industrial Center in Rockland County, but we’ve been waiting a year for this beer that we’ll be tapping today or tomorrow as a draught line opens.

We expect to be carrying Jeff’s beers regularly, but you can get a sneak peek (taste?) this weekend of some hoppy goodness from Industrial Arts Brewing!
