A refined Irish bar with touches of decades past. – In Short
This classic Irish bar is by no means a dive--from the moment you set foot through the swinging saloon doors, the beautiful dark wood bar and rich red walls convey a refined tone. There's a fireplace and intimate tables toward the back, and plenty of seating at the bar and along the walls. The friendly, gregarious bartenders pour drinks with a liberal hand--from wines, ports and whiskeys to 10 beers on tap. The Internet jukebox has a full selection of music, but swing by on Sundays to hear live Irish tunes.
They give you a sidecar!! – Gibney's is my go-to, corner bar. I can hit it up when I'm tired and wearing sweats, or when I want a cheap, strong martini before running into the city. Every time I go there I laugh at the bartenders, and they (somehow) always give me a nice buzz. Always a good time had by all at Gibney's.
Charming Bartenders, Inexpensive Drinks – Gibney's has been a favorite watering hole of mine for years. Everyone is friendly and the bartenders are always gracious. Occasionally, you'll walk in and think you're in a club on Long Island (by the looks of the clientele and the music), but give it a couple of days and it'll be back to the same ol' Gib's! Oh, and there is some guy who likes to take his clothes off, but should really bundle up.
So many positives can't be wrong – I can only add that I adore Noel and Mike. It's really these fine bartenders that makes Gibneys what it is -- a fantastic spot to sit and enjoy a beverage, meet with friends or party the night away. You're missing out if you don't stop by Gibneys any day of the week for a great time (but it's more crowded on Fridays).
Perfect – This is my "Cheers"! Thanks to Noel and Mike for always entertaining and pouring. Go Guzzlers!!!!
My Second Home in Astoria – I used to think of Gibney's as a fallback bar - the place to go in case I couldn't think of/didn't want to go anywhere else. Now, I've accepted the fact that Gibney's is easily the best bar in Astoria, and I don't bother trying to think of anywhere else to go! I love the bartenders - Noel - you are the god of beer! Everyone should come here - if they don't, more beer for us!
Greatest Bar in the World – Words can't really do this place justice, but I'll try. This is quite simply the greatest bar in the world, and I'm an alcoholic! It has all of the essential elements: An extensive selection of spirits that will satisfy even the most discerning palate, a wonderful lively atmosphere, gorgeous decor, and, of course, great bartenders. Noel and Mike are the best duo of bartenders I've ever seen in my entire life. Every time I'm there I have an awesome time (every time I can remember, that is. ha, ha). The only thing Gibney's lacks is more girls who like chubby drunk guys that wear glasses.
Great Place! – If your looking for some swanky place that serves $10 drinks and has a red rope outside than Gibney's is not the place. However, if you want to just chill out, have a few beers with some friends, watch a game, listen to good music and meet some of the finest bartenders in NYC, then Gibney's is it!
Escape from the Wolves of Woodside! – Whether you're a dirty-Dub or a culchie from Cork, you're at home in this Astoria pub. It's a little too dark at times but has lots of crazy 80's music, sociable bartenders (they'll have a drink or two with you, but shhh) and overall great (and clean) atmosphere, unlike the pack-mentality of the Woodside bars. Don't feel like sitting at the bar? There are booths up front and tables with cushioned seats in the back. Now how are them apples?
whoohoo! – This is an excellent neighborhood bar. I bring all my friends out here. There's no reason to ever leave Astoria with Gibney's around!
