Nice Garden But Barmaid Spoils It. I walked in smiling, greeting her with big hello, go to the garden in the back to meet with some creative types (who like to drink, etc.). She immediately followed me back and said nastily, "You gonna buy something or what?" We came there to talk and drink, we left looking for another place in a big hurry.
worst bar in sunnyside. just moved to sunnyside a few months ago and i stopped in here a couple of times. glad to see that i am not alone in my opinion. the blonde barmaid in here is awful. Took forever to bring our drinks and they were served with alot of attitude and a healthy dose of patchouli. There are alot of other pubs on this strip that are friendlier. Don't waste your time.
good prices.bad service. im living in woodside 2 years now and havent been to the gaslight more than twice. id heard bad things and after work over christmas a few nights we met there as it was handy for everybody and i have to agree. the bartender was looking down her nose when we we were laughing and having a good time. then i waited on her for what seemed an age while she was talking to her friends about people sitting at the other end of the bar.prices were good and did meet a few familiar faces which was nice but felt very unwelcome and working in the industry myself i found service t be quite rude.i think ill stick with the nest!
Best bar in Sunnyside.
Just read the reviews below and I totally disagree.
I have never experienced any rude or negative vibes in the gas light.
Any time I go there i always get treated with the utmost respect and receive great service from all the bartenders ...day or night..
There is always a great atmosphere there and a nice crowd/
As a frequent bar goer to all the bars in the sunnyside/woodside area I have to say the gas light is one of my favourites and it is due to the fantastic staff, who I believe are all working there a long time. I know exactly the bar tender you are speaking off and she is great, so friendly and always greets everybody with a smile. If she had to ask you for some manners, you must have been very very rude. Would you happen to be the "lady" who threw a glass at her?
Try the Gas light for yourselves and you will see what a great little bar it is. I highly recommend it
never again. rude barmaid. big blonde ilaine. illegal and rac ist . illegal and shes rude . although the bar is good when she is not there
PLEASE BOYCOTT THE GASLIGHT ON 4317 Queens Blvd
Sunnyside, NY 11104 (718) 729-9900. THE WAITRESS THERE ILENE (THE BLONDE ONE) IS RAC IST AGAINST LATINOS AND A HATER. I WAS THERE TONIGHT WHERE SHE MADE ALL THE LATINO MEN SAY PLEASE AND THANK YOU FOR DRINKS ( OR SHE WOULD REFUSE TO SERVE THEM DRINKS) .. WHILE ALL THE WHITE MEN JUST PLACED THEIR ORDERS.. AT FIRST I THOUGHT SHE JUST WANTED PEOPLE TO BE POLITE, BUT SHE WAS INTENTIONALLY RUDE TO ONLY THE PEOPLE WHO LOOKED HISPANIC. THE BOUNCER, AN AFRICAN AMERICAN GENTLEMAN WHO IS VERY NICE, AGREED THAT HER BEHAVIOR WAS RACISTS, AS DID THE BAR HELP. PLEASE DO NOT GO AND GIVE YOUR MONEY TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT... AND PLEASE, PLEASE PASS THE WORD DOWN TO ALL WHO DISAPPROVE OF THIS BEHAVIOR.
i'd like to add that no, this isn't the person that "threw a drink" at the bartender. how sad that the gaslight has to have its staff write in a positive review. it's too late, words out, your bar s*cks.
Great Bar. I'm sorry to hear about the experience by reviewer below. I'm also a person of color and did not have that experience with the staff. I celebrated my birthday there last year and we were about 15 people and the staff was very helpful, even provided a knife and cutlery for the cake. The only "uncomfortable" experience I had at that bar was with a patron, but as long as the staff treats me with respect, my friends and I will continue to go there. The garden is great, the drinks are reasonable and you can bring in your own food.
Indieconcepts, please contact. Indieconcepts, I read your review and have a similar concern. I would like to hear from you, please email Sunnysidegal@yahoo. I also grew up in this neighborhood and was disappointed with the treatment.
NEVER GOING AGAIN. ive lived in sunnyside all of my life and never walked into gas light. someone went recently and told me it was my kind of place. so i go. GREAT .. i loved it. decent crowd compared to other old folks bars in sunnyside. out door garden was nice and what more could i ask for. i bring 20 people for a pre wedding party for my cousin. we're buying drinks, tipping, socializing, hangin with the band,, as you do.. one of the barmaids asks us to keep it down several times. then tells the owner that she is scared of us... yea i can see that.. 12 girls and 8 guys scare you... maybe cuz we're not white like everyone else... we got such a R@CIST vibe from that place. it totally ruined our night. THE LAST TIME I EVER GO THERE. EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER. btw. we asked the bouncer if he thought we were "scaring people" or being out of line.. he said NO.. he loved us. THEN AGAIN HE WAS THE ONLY OTHER PERSON THERE NOT WHITE.
Great bar, Good drinks..Good Crowd...Excellent Staff.
I have no clue what it is that previous reviewer is refering to. I know this bar, I know these people and to be honest they pretty much give as good as they get....I have never in my time going into that bar experienced a bad vibe from any of the bar staff and I am offended to think that you would refer to them as rude. Maybe its something in you that draws that out in people...!!!.
Great bar, Good drinks..Good Crowd...Excellent Staff...What more could you ask for in a bar...
