Jimmy is a bar in the back of Burke's Bacon Bar.
River North

Walk through Burke's Bacon Bar until you reach the curtain-covered door: Jimmy is located just behind it and you'll have to ask to get in. Once you're in, the room has a '70s vibe, with golden tones, walnut paneling and ohter trappings of the decade. The cocktails, thankfully, are not of the era, but instead feature ingredients like celery bitters, thyme ice and muddled grilled pineapple. At $16 apiece, though, they aren't good enough to shells out for more than one, which is maybe why the other bar-goers quickly moved through or else were moodily drinking alone.
