Over four years in the making following the meticulous historic restoration of an original 1905 YMCA building, the club – named for local businessman James Labrie, who died in 2016 – is the brainchild of his sons, local restaurateurs/developers and jazz and blues enthusiasts Michael and Peter Labrie, co-owners of the Labrie Group, a real estate corporation. The company also owns Atlantic Grill and River House restaurants.
“We wanted to make a valuable contribution to jazz and blues music and felt the best way to accomplish this was to create one of the best jazz and blues clubs in the world — right here in the Greater Portsmouth, NH seacoast community my brother and I love so much,” Michael says.
Inspired by a Moulin Rouge-style cabaret ambience, the venue boasts a multi-level, brick-and-beam interior with original stained-glass features, two majestic original atrium windows, and a new, multi-floor glass and steel addition in the rear. All guests at Jimmy’s will discover an architectural treasure that is a blend of lovingly preserved historic details and new beautifully crafted construction.
“Our vision is for Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club to represent the highest standard of excellence in music, food, and service. We want to create the most positive and memorable live music experiences for every guest who comes through the door at Jimmy’s,” says Peter Labrie.
