Jack Dempsey’s


In 1935, heavyweight champ Jack Dempsey opened his world famous bar and restaurant on the site of the old car barn across from Madison Square Garden. He could be found there most nights of the week for nearly forty years, holding court with other famous figures, signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans. Sadly this great Broadway institution was closed in 1974.
