Gaelic typeface, gold trim, and a bright red door mark this no-frills watering hole in the heart of Astoria. Between the florescent Guinness sign in the window and the dark wooden-paneled interior, Daly's recalls every other Irish pub you've been to. The difference is appealing theme nights, like Tuesday Trivia and Wednesday Darts. But don't plan on spending the whole night there, as there's no food to soak up the pitchers you will undoubtedly drink. The real standout of Daly's is its weekend perks: live music and Bloody Sundays featuring bartender Mira's notable cocktails. Try the spicy Hail Mary, with vodka-infused sun dried tomatoes. Or keep the weekend party going with the Bloody Maria, made with tequila. Sundays also boast a buy-two-get-one-free deal and barbecuing on the back patio, another reason this Irish pub has gained a loyal, albeit mostly local, following.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
