Brother Jimmy's Murray Hill

Yee-haw! If all a guy wants is meat, ball games and blasting tunes, this string of faux-thentic Carolina honky-tonks can scratch the itch. Platters of tasty fried chicken, pulled pork and ribs (either spice-crusted or saucy) hit tables with a steady thud. Specials abound, including Saturday afternoon 1/2 price hot wings and the Sunday Rib Feast—all you can eat and drink in two hours for $27.95.

So I can only speak to my experiences here with NYCSocial, as Brother Jimmy's happens to be the bar we go to for our post kickball flip cup tournament. 


Like its namesake, this place is basically filled with bros. From their first floor of bar/restaurant, to their back room (try to get this space to yourselves if you can), to their bottom floor of drinking game set up, skeeball, dance floor, and additional bar, you'd think you can avoid all the bros.


Unfortunately, like moths to a fly, bros come out in packs here to scout out any potential ladies. However, that doesn't mean it's all bad. Most people I've encountered were friendly, and at times extremely inebriated. 


The people who run NYCSocial also do a great job, as their staff makes sure our cups are refilled and our games are prepared. 


The bar does play some good music though, ranging from oldies to pop to dance, which means this place has the potential to turn up on any given night. Their drinks for the most part are pretty standard, but let's face it, you're not here for great craft beer.
