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 pineapple-splashed Mary Pickford and a cardamom-infused sidecar, pay 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 bar or from the cozy outdoor patio. 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.”
