Once a private cafeteria for Paramount’s brightest stars, the subterranean space below Kaufman-Astoria Studios now caters to locals nostalgic for Jazz Age glamour. The supper club-inspired cocktail menu, dreamed up by mixologists Lynnette Marrero and Jim Kearns (Rye House, Freemans) and featuring expertly mixed concoctions like the Campari-tinted Valentino and pineapple-splashed Mary Pickford, pays tribute to the silent-screen celebrities who dined and drank here in days of yore. The Astor Room’s full menu is also orderable at the marble-topped bar. Retro design details include original mosaic wall tiling, a live piano twinkling away at Gershwin and Ellington, and a taxidermied beaver: the animal to which fur magnate and Astoria namesake John Jacob Astor owes his vast fortune. It occupies a place of honor, gnawing on a log high above the Beaver Bar.
