Get off the 30th Ave N/W subway stop and make your way up towards 42nd Street to Blackbird’s. This relaxed neighborhood saloon features craft beers, bar bites, and theme-night specials.  As Astoria becomes more popular, and more high-end bars and restaurants crop up, Blackbird’s offers Astorians a truly perfect neighborhood bar. 

Their website states that Blackbird’s is “the realization of a dream to create a public home for the good people of Astoria.”  This is something they’ve certainly achieved.  For example, their “Pay it Forward” menu, where patrons can offer up acts of kindness to fellow Astorians.  Just tell the bartender you’d like to pay $20 to cover a round of drinks for a fellow single mom or someone who had a bad day.  They’ll put it up on the board for someone to claim she can claim, no questions asked. It’s a beautiful concept that really demonstrates the sense of kindness at Blackbird’s.  In addition to the wonderful atmosphere, Blackbird’s menu is incredible.

On Sundays they offer their BBB deal: beer, bourbon, and a burger for $18.  This classic burger is made of prime meat sourced from a butcher out on Long Island.  It comes with lettuce, tomato, red onion, a pickle, and fries.
