Bar Review: Hell Gate Social

12-21 Astoria Blvd.
Astoria, NY 11102


This is a very cool place a little out of the way, but worth the trip. Outside looks like a random door and definitely doesn’t seem like a normal bar/lounge door (see pic above). Decor is very new age art, has a great vibe with friendly bartenders. They have a full stage area for live music towards the back of the bar. There is also an outdoor area there, where benches and tables are scattered around for many groups to occupy. The bathrooms have no sinks in them, but a communal setup lands itself between the men’s & women’s bathrooms. This usually leads to a convo and might be an easy icebreaker.

Events like rockband games are played on large screens on Thrus. nights. They also have great happy hours and if you go the right nights, might even catch a Burlesque show. This is a must for any, who wants something a little different.
