Upstairs Cocktail Bar is a cozy, craft cocktail lounge found above UFC Unidentified Flying Chickens on Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights. The dimly lit space is decorated with massive bookshelves holding tiny sculptures, books, small plants, and other knickknacks. With seating for four at the bar and tables for two, it’s a quiet and intimate space above the hustle and bustle of the street below. On the menu, you’ll find unique seasonal cocktails alongside a refreshing list of spritzes and classic drinks. You can go for the Dealer’s Choice and have the bartender mix a custom concoction with your alcohol of choice. Note that this bar is cash only!
