Katch Astoria opened in May 2013 with one goal in mind: to serve the good people of Astoria & beyond exactly what they want. Whether it be hoppy beer, tasty cocktails, or a quality meal made fresh & in-house, Katch has it for you in a timeless, yet modern setting.
Queens has a rich history of beer appreciation, as it was once a pre-prohibition hub for breweries, while also home to European-style beer gardens, both old & now new. Thus, we compiled a drink menu brimming with brews from the five boroughs, cross-country, & across the pond too. We’ve marked off territory on two full pages of the menu for both beer hounds and beer geeks alike, with selections from Guinness, Samuel Adams, & Blue Moon, as well as Lagunitas, Victory, Dogfish Head, Astoria’s own SingleCut Brewsmiths, even Wells & Young from England & the über-niche Gulden Draak from Belgium. All 50 of our lines tap strictly craft beers that are in constant rotation with 5 Kurrent Attractions that change about every week and 45 others updated every 90 days. We also offer buckets of your all-time favorite bottles. Our expert mixologists contrived the Kocktail menu, which now features many classics with a Katch twist. For example, the Katch 22: a traditional cosmopolitan with pomegranate, topped off with apple cider & served in a 22-oz. glass. All of these soothing beverages can be enjoyed indoors or in the comfort of our intimate boutique Katch Kourtyard that spans 4,500 square feet—the perfect party spot for you & your suds-centric friends & family.
With great attention to detail, Executive Chef Chad Bowser put together a diverse, high-caliber menu. Chad’s credentials include the Manhattan spots Gastorate & Barraca, as well as one of California’s top studio catering companies, Feast, where he would conceive dishes of a wide variety, pulling from a myriad of cuisines for prolific clientele. We pushed the limits of what a local bar can serve, including bunches of Buffalo Wings, but also duck poutine, for starters. We have a unique Krispy Kale & Garlic Shrimp, along with German Pretzels, Mini Brats in a Blanket, & an extra-large portion of Tater Tots. The Katch menu also sports plenty of burgers, sliders, sandwiches, & vegetarian options too. The ridiculous 4-6 Pastrami Sandwich’s meat is brined for 4 days, then smoked for 6 hours & topped with Gruyere cheese & beer mustard. Our Triple Decker Cheezy Mac Burger Sandwich has become a fan favorite, along with the Philly Cheesesteak Sliders. The Arrogant Skirt Steak, marinated in Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale, will fill your carnivorous cravings, while the Greek 13 salad with traditional Mediterranean fixings is available for greenies. We know that everyone’s favorite meal of the week is brunch, and our special weekend menu is another reflection of our vision and dining experience. The Brunch Burger has corned beef hash. The Blueberry Crunch Pancakes come topped with honey yogurt. There’s also Chicken & Waffles, Eggs Benedict, and a “Hangover Helper” dish, not to mention the unlimited beverage options that includes two hours of bottomless PBR draft beer. None of our ingredients are ever frozen. They are always fresh, ensuring that you experience unmatched flavor.
Katch has plenty of booths & tables fit for small groups of friends, but you can also contact one of our Katch managers to find out how we can work with you to put together a personalized party package for a big birthday, promotion, or anniversary as well.
Queens is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world, & Astoria in particular has become an attractive settling spot for transplants from all over America. So we had to imagine the most amazing of possibilities for a bar. With all of these amenities, plus 60 flatscreens worth of entertainment, we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished at Katch Astoria.
We are located at 31-19 Newtown Avenue. Hours of operation are Sunday: 11:30am-1am, Monday-Wednesday: 3pm-1am, Thursday: 3pm-2am, Friday: 3pm-3am & Saturday: 11:30am-3am. For more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (718) 777-2230.
We hope to Katch you soon in Astoria, New York City.
