Take the N or W to Astoria – Ditmars Blvd • We’re on 23rd Ave, after Sal’s deli (between 33rd St and 35th St.)
Your local Irish Pub with over 15 beers on tap and a great selection of wines as well as live music, trivia nights and just about every sports game you could want.
Great local spot. Bartenders with personality and very reasonably priced drinks!! Can’t be beat!
My first time here and I see what the other locals are talking about. Relaxed, old school pub with a lot of charm. Friendly bartender. Good mix of crowd ranging in age. Exactly what the doctor ordered. My kind of place. Will definitely come back.
Best spot for a pint near Ditmars! Probably the friendliest and funniest bartenders in the area. And unlike some of the other recent additions to the neighborhood, this place is not charging Manhattan prices. Lots of televisions and plenty of seating. I might just go there now!
I have been going to this bar/pub for about a year now and I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a laid back atmosphere, good drinks selection and specials. The staff is very friendly… my bf and I like that it has a great variety of beers on tab. We love that it’s BYOF… bring your own food is amazing for us… The neighborhood has lots of delicious food to choose from.
Great for sports!!
byo food! How can you not like a bar that is BYO Food?
Now, while I won’t tell you the sordid tale of how I ended up here, I will tell you that Mark is the man. Where else can you open a tab w/ a Bartender, drink to your hearts content, and then have them put you in a cab on the way home at the end of the night? Suffice it to say that I owe this dude….so, the Astoria Tavern is my go-to drinks place now.
Tons of tvs and they’ll play whatever you want, pretty decent beer and liquor selection and THE BEST POUR OF GUINNESS I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE (even while in Ireland). Now, growing up in Ireland these blokes now how to make a good pour w/ the clove on top. Can’t beat that. Prices are very fair, and a little on the low end. DO IT if you’re in the area.
In fact, you will see me often go from The Thirsty Koala for food, then over to the Tavern for my drinkies. There’s a well worn path in the sidewalk from all of my going back and forth…
I’m in love! I’m a huge fan of the Irish Rover on 28th Avenue, and always said to myself, “Wow, wouldn’t it be great (and terrible for my wallet and liver) if the Irish Rover was a block away from my apartment?”
Well, my prayers were answered this summer when the Astoria Tavern opened up, bringing everything I love about the Rover even closer to home. Good crowd, good beer selection, live music on the weekends, friendly Irish bartenders — what more could you ask for.
Another great thing about this spot is that they open at 8 am. And, you can bring your own food. We showed up with breakfast sandwiches and enjoyed a few beers on a Saturday morning before heading up to Yankee Stadium which worked out perfectly.
My new go-to neighborhood spot!
Astoria Tavern is a wonderful addition to the bar scene of Astoria and LIC. They have only been open 3 weeks or so and I think the ownership is part of the Irish Rover.I guess I did not notice construction over the last few months while going to Sal, Kris and Charlie, since the bar is only 25 feet away and this could be a new regular routine. Go to SKC, then go to Astoria Tavern for lunch. Astoria Tavern does not serve food.The interior of the bar is very nice. It has that new bar coat which some people like and some don’t. Personally I found the place very warm and welcoming. It had a combination brick walls, wood bar and beam ceilings. Plenty of TVs (16) and they where well place throughout the tavern. Lighting and music, on point.
Tuesday night’s bartender was Kevin. An Irish guy who definitely knows his trade. I was greeted immediately and was engage in conversation a couple of times. Since the dozen or so customers where all new, he was working the crowd. Job well done.
Overall, Astoria Tavern is a great all around place to enjoy an adult beverage, conversation with friends, chill solo or enjoy some sports on TV. You are made to feel welcome from the moment you walk in and throughout your visit. Very refreshing. I will definitely be a regular. Cheers…………
Pretty chill place. Its nice walking into a fairly new bar. Everything about the place was clean. They have darts here with an automated score keeper which I thought was pretty cool. The drink specials were good and so are their regular priced beers. The beer on tap didn’t get me sick so that’s how I know they keep their stuff clean.
Very, Very happy w/ the bathroom. Clean, smell and amount of toilet paper etc.
I know I will find my way back here. They are tons of TVs so for sports people I am sure they will flock here.
This place rocks! Grand Opening celebration. Killer Bloody Mary, pink, not blood red, if you know what I mean. Great bartenders, Mark and .. I forgot his name. Very attentive. Great bear mix of crafts and quality commercial beer. Crazy Irish band right off the boat. This was a party. Hugest pint glasses I have ever seen Goo..reat times! Awesome beer! Proper pints and proper Irish! Good. Good. Cheers
Friendly, cute, pubb-ish — they’ve got a decent beer selection on tap (it’s more pub-style than craft-focused, but they still have a couple of crafts on tap and in bottles, and they’ve got a full liquor bar). The staff is super friendly and excited to be a part of something new, and we ended up getting a free beer at the end of the night. My favorite thing about Astoria Tavern is the fact that you can bring your own food in since they do not serve food. This works out pretty well considering the plethora of food options you have in the immediate vicinity that you can bring in there as take-out and enjoy with your favorite brewski.
