    Amazing cocktails crafted to order. Hint: trust your bartender and go off menu. Just tell them the ballpark of what you like and they'll get you there.
  • Ray E.
    Great cocktails ! Just tell the bartender what you're into and they'll make you something special. Also, the sandwiches are awesome. Make sure you ask what the special is.

    (Thrillist tip) Dutch Kills’ classic-leaning cocktails -- not to mention the kickass bar food from M. Wells, and an $8 Monday-through-Thursday happy hour -- make any amount of jostling worthwhile.

    Great cocktails and apparently they just added a sandwich shop inside

    Their cocktails are delicious, and on the off chance you can't fond something on the menu that you want, the bartender will make you something specially catered to your tastes!

    Great cocktail bar! The dimly-lit environment makes it impossible to read the menu for the elderly (cough- me- cough). So carry a flashlight or decide on your order before coming in.

    Very good spot near MoMA Ps1 to have great cocktails at a quite cheap price for nyc. Ask for the bartenders choice. He is great at choosing drinks.

    Wonderful speakeasy in an odd location, with some of the best cocktails I've had in NYC. Dark and intimate.

    Dark, wooden rectangular panels enclose one of NYC’s favourite spots for serious drinking. With a tilt to brown spirits and classics, this bar has twice been among the top 50.

    Best drinking experience I've ever had in NYC. Excellent drinks, friendly bartending, and absolutely amazing bar food, courtesy of M. Wells. What more do you need?!

    I love this place. Great cocktails and food is amazing. Looks like a dive bar from the outside, but inside is great. Definitely stop by. The Monkey Business cocktail with him and banana liquor rocks.

    Great cocktails. They are very amenable to you going off menu. Just describe some ideas and voilà! Meat pies are delicious but definitely 1.5 per person if you want a meal.

    Any fresh lemon mix drink is delicious. Bartenders are quite skilled too, especially when you ask them to make you something off menu.

    The place is difficult to find due to a purposeful shortage of signage. The happy hour whiskey sour for $8 was excellent.

    Much awe, very love. These cocktails are worth the trip to LIC, in a stylish intimate venue that is dark enough for both dates and indiscretion. 3 inch ice cubes and metal straws keep it classy.

    Dutch Kills uses that super-clean ice that's sure to ruin cocktails at other spots for you. Dark and moody.

    This is a wonderful bar with really inventive, tasty drinks. I strongly believe they would benefit from a short but solid food menu.

    In a non-descript two floor brick building between a transmission shop and a taxi lot, Dutch Kills is an unmarked gem, save for a neon BAR sign. The vibe has always been deliberately divey and fun. Read more

    This modern day saloon is outfitted with bartenders who can handle a crowd with gruff endearment while also creating some of the most delicately garnished drinks this side of the East River. Read more

    If the "bar" sign is unlit, you might walk by and miss this cozy cocktail bar. Great wooden booths make this LIC's worthy sister bar to Black Rabbit.

    Consistently great drinks and vibe here. Gets busy pretty early, like 7pm on weekends. I'm not gonna recommend a drink cause they're all good depending on what your fave liquor is.

    Certainly the best cocktail bar in Queens. Reasonably priced, too. Come early on a weeknight for a quiet, delicious experience. Come late on the weekend for party town.

    A cool place a few years ago when hand-chipped ice was cool. They failed to maintain the creativity. In 2014, service is mind bogglingly horrible given the location. Don't waste your time.

    Possibly the best cocktails in NY. Understated, unpretentious place. Best is to talk with the bartender and he will make you what you want. Worth the trip to Queens.
