Tucked among the bagel shops and fish markets on 30th Avenue, this hoary relic may be the last true dive bar in Long Island City. Don’t expect any smiles from the muddled after-work crowd—they’re likely too buried in their booze or complaining about the Mets to notice your entrance. Go later at night, and you’ll find a few trendy locals who’ve stopped by for an “ironic” beer on their way back from somewhere else. Have one too many, and you’re likely to get kicked out by the cranky old bartenders, who will gladly tell you to screw yourself in an Irish brogue. The décor has plenty of authentic touches—an antediluvian cash register, mahogany paneling, and a nut dispenser full of fossilized cashews. Don’t hog the Bowlers Club arcade game, and steer clear of the jukebox—whatever song you choose, you’ll be berated for it.
