Jimmy Neary is a renowned restauranteur and owner of his famed namesake Manhattan restaurant since 1967.  He was 91.

The Neary family confirmed the death Saturday of the man who had been a legend in the New York City food scene for decades. He passed away peacefully in his sleep.

‘Heartbreaking’; Jimmy Neary, owner of the famous New York City pub Neary’s, has died at 91.

One of the most well-known publicans in New York City has passed away.

Jimmy Neary, owner of the 57th Street and First Avenue landmark Neary’s restaurant and pub, died quietly in his sleep Friday night, according to his family. He was 91 years old when he died.

Neary’s was founded by the happy, always-smiling Irishman on St. Patrick’s Day in 1967, more than 50 years ago. Since then, it’s become a New York City institution.

“We want to thank you all for being a part of his life. Dad loved you all and he cherished being with you for the past 55+ years,” the family wrote in a statement posted on the door of Neary’s Saturday night.

“You were all a critical part of his family and enriched his life in countless ways. As he always said ‘I love my life!’”

Neary’s funeral service will be held next Saturday at 10 a.m. St. Patrick’s Cathedral, presided over by long-time friend Cardinal Timothy Dolan, his daughter Una told The Post.

Una said her father always said he felt like he never worked a day in his life.

“What he did is what he loved, and he just loved people. It was all about people for him,” she said. “He would say he didn’t care if the restaurant ever made a penny, he just wanted to be around people.”

Friends and family of Neary will more than anything miss the incredible hypnotic effect he had on everyone he encountered through his candor and storytelling.

“My father had this unique ability to connect with anyone of any age about any topic. He was a great storyteller and people were just drawn to him, he was like a magnet. He was extraordinary,” Una said.

Further Information

Neary’s has been a longtime favorite St. Paddy’s day stop for a slew of politicians and other celebrities over the years, including former Mayor Mike Bloomberg and New York Gov. George Pataki.

Some of the prominent people who have sat at the bar for a pint of Guinness include Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Hugh Carey, Ed Koch, and Tip O’Neill. Neary was known for personally greeting all of his visitors, whom he enjoyed spending time with.

In a 2013 interview with The Washington Post, Neary said of owning his restaurant, “It’s great, this life.” “Everyone is beaming. They may be grumpy when they first arrive, but they won’t be once we’ve finished talking to them.”

“Everyone wanted to be near my father. Una explained, “He simply has this energy, this love that reaches people in such a manner that they never forget it.”

Many of Neary’s employees have worked there for decades, enjoying working under such a unique and kind boss. Loyal patrons have been finding the same barstool or booths for decades as well, which Una said is allowed to her father.

One yearly tradition that the restaurant had just celebrated before his death was the annual surprise party for Neary every year on his birthday, Sept. 14, when customers pack the pub and “surprise” the bar owner with a big party.

“When we reopen our doors at Neary’s we will have the greatest toast to the greatest man I’ve ever known in my life.

“In New York City, my dad has been here for over 70 years working. And New York is just a little bit darker tonight with my dad not here.”
