Frankfurt am Main, 13th December 2022. Gekko Group will reopen Jimmy’s Bar as the new operator. Today, marks the beginning of a new season for the renowned bar, which is a historic and traditional asset of the city of Frankfurt. The well-known, exclusive and dignified flair of Jimmy's Bar will be brought back to life in good tradition.
At the end of 2020 the Grandhotel Hessischer Hof closed as an effect of the pandemic and with it the Jimmy’s Bar as well. On December 3rd 2022 the legendary hotel was sold by the Hessian House Foundation to Peakside Capital. The real estate investment manager plans a reopening after renovation as a 5-star hotel under a new operator. Jimmy’s Bar is also part of the repositioning. Until that happens, Jimmy’s Bar will be temporarily operated by the Gekko Group. The bar has a significant cult status. Helmut Schmidt, Udo Lindenberg, the Rolling Stones and ACDC have all made appearances there over the past 60 years. Gekko Group is pleased to start a new season with this legend of Frankfurt’s nightlife. Jimmy’s Bar is located in the former Grandhotel Hessischer Hof, Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage 40 in Frankfurt and will prospectively open Tuesdays to Saturdays, from 6:00pm to 02:00am.
