Lounge 47 gets its name from the fact that it is located between 47th Avenue and 47th Road. This chic establishment features low couches, cool dim lighting, and relaxing jazz music that encourages some serious lounging. In the back you will find a large patio, which is quite unusual to find in city bars. You will also have the opportunity to sample their reasonably priced menu, which features bar foods and appetizers such as spiced olives, wasabi deviled eggs, sandwiches, and full meals that are all below $10. We particularly recommend that you try their unique, house-made Iced Tea and Kiss-Me-Tini cocktails. Happy hour at Lounge 47 is every day between Monday and Friday, from 3 pm to 7 pm. Include Lounge 47 in your itinerary and head over to Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City on your night out for a unique experience.
