The Last Word

Venue Info

Enter through a “hardware store” on Ditmars Boulevard and you’ll find yourself in The Last Word, a cocktail bar that appears to be the Queens version of Raines Law Room, complete with red velvet curtains, plush chairs, exposed brick, a tin ceiling. The similarities make sense, given that one of the owners was also behind the Chelsea speakeasy. And while New York is saturated with speakeasies, that fact is basically irrelevant when faced with drinks like the Fat Monk with pear-infused reposado, Hefeweizen syrup, egg whites, lemon, and orange bitters.
