A review of Diamond Dogs in Astoria, Queens

Located at 34-04 31st Avenue in Astoria, Queens, Diamond Dogs is a craft-beer bar that, until recently, had slipped under our radar.  We gather that the spot has been open for at least two years.  We’re happy to have visited Diamond Dogs on a recent Astoria craft-beer pub crawl.  Twelve tap beer offerings include a few nearby Queens breweries like Big Alice (Long Island City) and SingleCut (Astoria).  Craft cocktails are also a liquid draw here.  Diamond Dogs is a fairly small space with a backyard for pleasant weather outdoor drinking.  Overall, another solid bar for Astoria and one we hope to revisit sooner rather than later.

A brief review of Trestle in Astoria, Queens

Located at 34-02 Broadway in Astoria, Queens, Trestle is a recently-opened gastropub/craft-beer bar.  Twelve quality tap beers and numerous more bottled/canned offerings make Trestle a must for any Astoria NYC craft-beer bar crawl.  Since it’s located at the corner of 34th Street and Broadway with large windows looking out onto the intersection, Trestle is a great spot for sipping quality craft beer, eating tasty food and people watching along Broadway.  We look forward to returning here.

Happy First Saturday of March!

Our favorite non-holiday random calendar day of the year! The arrival of the First Saturday of March is very meaningful to us at Pub Crawl NYC. Though the calendar still says winter, March marks the end of the super-cold, long, dark winter months of December, January and February.  Spring (and good pub crawling weather) is just ahead.

And, if you’re looking for a pub crawl for today, the annual Hoboken, NJ St. Patrick’s bar crawl takes place today.  More info here.

Happy St. Patrick’s Month 2017

It has arrived, our favorite month of the year!  There will be numerous Irish NYC pub crawls around the city.  We’ll provide info on some of those St. Patrick’s bar crawls around NYC.  If you would prefer to create your own pub crawl, we can help, free of charge!  We just ask that you visit and “like” our facebook fanpage first, www.facebook.com/pubcrawlnyc and follow us on twitter (@nycpubcrawl). We’ve visited the overwhelming majority of bars across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. And we’re happy to share our wealth of knowledge.  Drop us a note on facebook.
