Also known as the "far bar", L.I.C. Bar is the neighborhood's northernmost watering holeónot counting the strip club up the block. Previous proprietors, who closed shop in the early 40s, left behind the original tin ceiling, fixtures, bar, and tables, giving the space a tasteful, saloon-like vibe that feels more Long Island City at the turn of the 20th century rather than the 21st. When the weeping willows are in bloom, the patio out back makes pints even more pleasant; and there's a back-back room for parties on the opposite side of the patio. L.I.C. is strictly a beer and bar-drink establishmentóno specialty cocktails hereówith an impressive selection of single-malt scotch.


On Mondays from 7-11 L.I.C. Bar hosts live music with a free buffet of food from Parnell's, the owner's restaurant in Manhattan.
