Lounge 47 Long Island City

Lounge 47 Vernon Boulevard, between 47th Ave and 47th Rd

This quaint lounge serves food and drinks with a stylish flare. Famed for their Long Island City Iced Tea made with Peach Schnapps (not peach nectar as many thought) and late 1960s beatnik inspired furnishings, Lounge47 is truly hip. It’s a great place to go any time of the year. Explore the large patio with a water-wall in the warmer months. Inside is dimly lit,  adorn with kelly green chairs, colored lamps, semi-psychedelic artistry and trendy leather booths. The small restaurant offers a decent food menu including delicious pulled pork tacos, giant falafel platter and filling burger with fries. The prices are respectable, but not cheap. The crowd isn’t overloaded with hipsters, instead it seems to attract a 30-something sophisticated clientele who want an alternative to the Manhattan scene. The service is friendly. It’s definitely a great place to bring friends or a date.
