Cool bar in Astoria. Owners have a bar in Williamsburg before this one called Basic, thus the name.
32-11 Broadway, Queens, NY 11106
Opened in 1829, this one of New York’s oldest bars, and one of its least known. Mae West a local from Woodhaven, used to tryout her new songs here. It was Robert De Niro character’s bar in Goodfellas. Remember that Christmas scene?
87-48 78th St, Woodhaven, NY 11421
A real mom and pop brewery. Great beers made with passion and love.
15-35 Decatur St, Ridgewood, NY 11385
This faux cocktail bar has a coffee shop to throw you off. But like a mullet, it’s business in the front and party in the back.
401 E 13th St, New York, NY 10009
A rooftop bar 22 flights up on 26th st. Retractable roof keeps the place going beyond October.
Hilton New York Fashion District, 152 W 26th St, New York, NY 10001
One of NYC’s oldest bars. Opened in 1868. A bit out of the way on 11th ave. But if you want to rub shoulders with advertising folk/scum, look no further Ogilvy’s next door. Ask for conference room LM.
