The Baroness Bar
Long Island City NY 11101
(Long Island City)
A quirky side street bar that dabbles in sabrage.
Directions - 7 / N / W train to Queensboro Plaza, exit on the north side of the dual carriageway (Queens Plaza North), walk west briefly, turn right briefly on Crescent Street. Alternatively, E / M / R train to Queens Plaza, exit at the east end (Northern Boulevard and Bridge Plaza North), walk west on Bridge Plaza North which curves round into Queens Plaza North adjacent to the elevated railway, turn right briefly on Crescent Street which is just past the entrance to Queensboro Plaza station.
Just north of the towering rail viaduct upon which sits Queensboro Plaza subway station is this quirky side street bar. There is a small but decent range of craft beers, all from domestic breweries located in the north-eastern states. There's a tiny open kitchen at the back, next to a small 'snug' area with a couple of couches. The food menu specialises in burgers ('Beauty and the Beef'), though there are limited other options for vegetarians. Eccentrically, anyone who orders a bottle of champagne will learn the historical art of sabrage - where the top of the unopened bottle is literally beheaded in one blow by the impact of a sword. Don't try this at home... (12/2015)
