NOT YOUR ORDINARY BAR

L.I.C. BAR ROCKS!

LIC Bar is a classic New York City watering hole in the hottest neighborhood in Queens.You’ll find the bar’s 100-year-old history – an antique wood bar, original tin ceilings, brick walls – paired with a beautiful outdoor garden and a great friendly crowd – only one subway stop from Manhattan. Call it an oasis of authentic New York in the midst of gleaming new condo towers and a fantastic Manhattan view. The vibe at LIC Bar is casual and cool - no trademarked cocktails here, but plenty of choice if you favor draft beer, single-malt scotch, or a well-mixed drink. Your whole crew can rendezvous after a day of work or an afternoon at PS 1, and find seats at the long bar and big tables. Or head outdoors to the garden to sit in the shade under our willow trees on a sunny afternoon, or warm up under the heat lamps on a chilly night. Catch a local musicians performing on Sundays in the summer and you’ll find more reasons to come back to Long Island City’s classic bar.

Epic Music Experience

What Clients Say

"Shaun was on point, he has a system that works for remembering patrons and their drinks. I just came down here for 4th of july and the fireworks but now I'll be coming down here just for the atmosphere and amazing service. They have live music which is great and they care about the patrons that stop by. This is rare nowadays and I won't hesitate to tell anyone to come here for amazing service! Thank you Shaun and staff!"
