Our Story


Proud to be a part of the best beach town in the world

Jimmy’s is a premier live music & sports bar located in the heart of North Carolina’s best coastal town, Wrightsville Beach.


The building has been here for 44 years. In what used to be an old pharmacy, Jimmy's is now a place where music & good company collides--live music plays in the bar 365 days a year! No exceptions.


We offer a large selection of local craft beers, 8 rotating taps, TRULYs on deck, and a full liquor bar. We are also always running specials on drinks! Jimmy’s opens at noon every day of the week, except for Sundays when we open at 10 AM to fulfill your Bloody Mary fix!


Jimmy Gilleece has been bartending and enjoying Wrightsville Beach for 20 years. During his time as a student at UNCW, he fell in love with the community and knew that he wanted to make his mark in Wilmington.

Jimmy grew up around live music and always had a lot of musicians in his family, so when the old Red Dog’s owner Charlie Maultsby asked him if he wanted to take over the lower level of the historic bar, Jimmy knew right away that live music would be a staple part of the bar.
