Forest Hills Station House
Venue says 16 Craft Beer Taps, 1 Cask Ale, 120+ Whiskeys, Craft Cocktails, & Gastropub Fare in a Chill Environment.

Hop off the LIRR at 71st Avenue to find this beer-and-bourbon-focused gastropub in the Queens nabe of the same name. Fifteen craft brews are on tap at the barn-wood bar, including Evil Twin Lil' B, Blue Point Toasted Lager and Left Hand Milk Stout. Bottles (Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold, Rodenbach Grand Cru) and cans (Sixpoint Resin, Oskar Blues G'Knight) are also on offer. Thirty-two bourbon and rye bottles line the wooden shelves behind the bar, for stirring into cocktails like a Woodford Reserve old-fashioned or the Boulevard (Templeton Rye, Campari and Carpano Antica). Upscale bar bites include fried chicken livers with roasted-garlic aioli; short rib–kimchi empanadas with sriracha mayo; and beer-battered meatballs with stout mustard. For dessert, look for a deep-fried Snickers with bacon-bourbon glaze—with a few slugs of the dark stuff in you, you'll forget the near comical gluttony ever happened.

Forest Hills Station House says
Our mission at Forest Hills Station House is to focus on what's current and fun in the modern restaurant business. Our well trained and knowledgeable staff is eager to guide you towards a great bourbon, rye, craft beer, or cocktail to pair with our chef's playful take on traditional pub fare.

We consider ourselves a collection of creative food and booze nerds who want to share our passion with anyone stopping in for a few hours. Our bartenders will guide you through our menu of bespoke and classic cocktails, or happily craft a cocktail on the fly to suit your tastes. Our carefully curated beer and whiskey menu's have something to suit all tastes...from high end bourbons like Garrison Cowboy and the Van Winkle line to hard to find beers like Focal Banger and Kentucky Breakfast Stout. We love what we sell, and we want to share it with our guests.

Our professionally trained chef offers spins on classics like Street Tacos, Carnitas Udon, and Moscow Mule Bao Buns, but also pumps out classics like 4lb Racks of Smoked Ribs, hearty Mac & Cheese, and Lamb Chops with Jerk Hummus and Fried Chickpeas.

The vibe is chill, with reclaimed barn wood and low-lit Edison bulbs, digital beer menus on flat screen TVs with real-time social media updates, and the music is pretty eclectic from garage rock to trip hop to old school blues & modern folk.

Hope to see you soon! Cheers!

My favorite bar in forest Hills! Innovative food options, and always create cocktails. Excellent service, even with the crowds.

Betty C

Game-changing best restaurant and bar in Forest Hills that serves inventive entrees and cocktails. Impressive variety of beers on tap and whiskey.

Candy B

Chill place, good bartenders, the only downside is the lack of vegan options.

This place is a gem in Forest Hills. The location itself is perfect for meeting up with friends coming in from the city and long island. It's only a block from the Express E and F train and steps from the LIRR. The music selection is awesome and helped keep up the overall happy vibe of this place. It's not your average hole in the wall pub. It's got class but doesn't come with the stuck up attitude some similar places in the city have. Their Poutine is perfect in every way and the pulled pork sandwich is tasty and as dangerously addicting as their mac n cheese.
The overall crowd is hip and diverse. It's my go-to spot for this area. I've never been disappointed with their rotating beer selection. There's something for everyone's tastes and if you're not sure, the friendly waiters give you a sample.
