    We sat at the bar for a Friday Happy Hour to get our anniversary weekend started. The cocktails (Passionfruit Mojito and Lillet Spritz) were fantastic as were the oysters and charcuterie. Absolutely will be back next time we are in LIC.

    Over the year I passed by this place during the day a few times and have been wanting to try it. So glad I finally did a month ago! Yes late post. My friend and I opted to sit at the bar, very nice and friendly bartender. I love the dimly rustic ambience with pretty chill vibe, and not too loud music in the background. Lively but not too crazy! We didn't have dinner but had a great time catching up over Oysters on Half Shell, and some Charcuterie & Cheese. I am adding this joint on my 'will be back' list and definitely be back soon!

    Had the oyster (ridiculously good) and the smoked salmon over a couple of Bell's IPA. Great service and fun atmosphere.

    Really cool chill vibe with good food and even better cocktails. Our server was friendly yet efficient. Don't miss the deviled eggs - am still thinking about them and will definitely go back.

    I love everything about this place super cozy. The lighting is just perfect. The food is great the ambience the people the service. John and Jonathan always make us feel so comfortable and they’re very good at making drinks. We usually have the cheese plates. Everything is good.

    The menu is limited but what they have is absolutely top notch. My only warning is that if you maintain a gluten free diet, this is not the place to go for food. The cocktails are amazing.

    We came for the $1 oyster happy hour after work. There is now a limit of 6 oysters per person and you have to order a drink or cocktail with them. We arrived with another couple and they combined all 24 of our oysters on one platter, which was fine, but inconvenient. Service was very friendly. Cocktails were good and average expensive prices for the area.

    One of our favorite neighborhood spots now for good drinks and light bites. Great charcuterie, shrimp cocktail, and lobster roll. The Grey Gardens cocktail is delicious. They have plenty of outdoor seating as well. Happy hour gets very busy, but it's not usually too busy otherwise.

    The Beast Next Door has a well-detailed ornate yet minimalist flair. This cocktail bar is for the humans who enjoy being present in the moment to take a good look around. This space allows you to enjoy a well-made speakeasy cocktail with a thoughtful choice of small bites. The Beast Next Door is the bar to close your deal in all domains.

    Such an outstanding experience! The food was phenomenal (you must get the deviled eggs). The drinks were hand-crafted and extremely tasty. Additionally, the overall ambiance was very accommodating, perfect for date night or a group party. Lastly, the service was quick, steady and consistent. Hands down the best bar in Long Island City!
