    On the lower level of the Andaz, the huge, dark-walled, perfectly lit room is anchored by an airy cooking & drink-making space. Mixologists banter with chefs, guests, and one another while shaking up original (but classically minded) cocktails.

    The rigorously historical menu spans punches, absinthe, nogs, slings, smashes, and more, each dutifully footnoted, thoughtfully prepared, and—most significantly—damn delicious.

    The real draw here has always been dirt-cheap booze (order the house brands, Ruby’s Red and Ruby’s Blonde, by the pint or pitcher) or the increasingly rare jukebox, accepting dollars for your enjoyment.

    If Franz Kafka had a favorite bar in New York, Bohemian Hall would be it—and not just because it used to be a Czech and Slovak social club (and still is the central gathering spot for Astoria's Czech and Slovak community).

    s to the well-perused pile of takeout menus augmenting the twelve taps of high-end brews, unless you’ve snagged a place at the bar or one of the window seats, be sure to order something you can eat standing up.

    The cocktails don't disappoint: classic and strong, and heavy on craftsmanship. The intrigue is found in subtle details, like the burnt orange zest in the smoky Scotch-based Barrymore.
