Wine & beer bar set to open in Dutch Kills

The Baroness

A new wine & craft beer bar–tucked inside a 1920s Dutch Kills building– is expected to open next week.

The bar, called The Baroness, is located across the street from the Crescent Club rental complex– at 41-26 Crescent Street. It will offer wine and craft beer—as well as cheese & charcuterie from around the globe.

“We are ready to open,” said Kyle Radzyminski, who owns the bar with his wife. “We are just waiting for our liquor license…which is supposed to come this week.”

Radzyminski said that he and his wife—Melanie Lemieux– live next door to the bar and said that the area was in need of a local hangout. “It is a long walk to Jackson Avenue,” he said, as well as other locations.

The couple, who already own a bar in the East Village, have lived in Long Island City for the past three years and plan to stay in the neighborhood long term.

The bar will not play Top 40 music. Instead, Radzyminski said, “you’re more likely to hear Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Richard Cheese.”

We still remember
Big Mama’s on Queens Plaza North &
Smuggler’s Cove across from Clock Tower building
now long gone.

We went there in 1970’s and 1980’s

Oh, also Jane’s Bar where we got beer for 25¢

There were two bars on Queens Plaza South
