Dutch Kills has awesome drinks - they make a great Moscow Mule. It's a small cramped space, especially around the bar, but if you can get a table it's really nice to sit and relax.

Why bother with inessentials like signage, lighting or plates? A tiny sign on the street. Dim candles on the tables. The limited - but delicious - food items are served in cardboard boxes or tin cans. The meat pies are to die for, as are the cocktails.

I moved out of New York a couple of years ago and while there are not many things I miss about living there, Dutch Kills is near the top of the list. I make a point to go whenever I am in town. It's a speakeasy-inspired bar. Yes, if you see a neon BAR sign on a dark section of... More

Not hard to miss this hideaway, but worth finding! Fantastic Bar and cocktail menu a real throwback to quality neighborhood Bar we thought didn't exist in this day and age. Whiskey drinks my favorite.

From the street it seemed like just a door with a neon lamp that spells "BAR"... It was wayyyyyy better than i initially expected. Dutch Kills Bar has an amazing wood panel lined interior. All dark wood throughout the entire bar. There is a killer booth section for exclusive seating and it great because it allows you to have a... More

If you see a BAR neon light near Queens Plaza, go inside and enjoy some drinks perfectly done. Cool place and nice guys. They also have a not so short list of hot drinks also good.

Dutch Kills was the first location I attempted to find in LIC upon arrival. There is a lit sign well above the entrance: BAR Once found, it is a sweet retreat from the mean street. The ice cubes are artwork in themselves.
