Jimmy’s is a passion project for local restaurateur/developer brothers Michael and Peter Labrie, who have invested heart and soul — and millions of dollars — to restore this sprawling landmark structure, built in 1905 to house the local YMCA. The wide-open, brick-and-beam interior includes original stained-glass features, two majestic bay windows hand-crafted from old photographs, plus a new, multi-floor glass and steel addition on the back.

An important touchstone for local civic life through times of war and peace, economic prosperity and decline, its history also includes serving as the longtime home of Goodman’s clothing store and Sake restaurant on the ground floor — but its upper floors had been silent since the mid-1950s.
