Are you looking for a casual bar where you can get a few beers with your friends without driving out of town? Are you looking to socialize with friendly locals in the Mastic/Shirley area? These four neighborhood dive bars are great spots to enjoy a carefree night of drinking in good company!
JC’s Restaurant at Mike’s Place Too
While this bar has changed names and ownership, JC’s still maintains the local, friendly atmosphere that Mike’s Place was known for over the years. This bar offers great happy hour specials on drinks and appetizers that makes it hard to pass up. After all, after a long day at work, a raspberry Shock Top, some greasy appetizers, and good company is all you can really ask for. This bar attracts a diverse crowd of people from the area, ranging from recent Floyd alumni to longtime residents of the area. JC’s is open 11:00 am – 11:00 pm daily.
Good Friends is the Mastic version of the Cheers bar–the place where everybody knows your name. This is the type of neighborhood bar where locals come to vent, escape their everyday lives, and share a few beers with longtime friends. This bar is located on Mastic road, and attracts social locals of the area on work nights, weekends, and for special celebrations around the holiday times. Good Friends is open Monday-Saturday 8:00 am – 4:00 am, and Sunday 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm.
The Station Pub
The Station Pub is a small, cozy bar conveniently located on William Floyd Parkway across from the Mastic-Shirley train station. Locals enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and judge-free environment that this bar has to offer. The Station Pub is a great place to grab a beer and enjoy some casual conversation at any time of day or night, or to play a game of darts and reminisce about the good ol’ days. This bar is open until 4:00 am daily.
The Manor House
This bar and restaurant is located on Montauk Highway, and has been around for as long as my parents can remember. The Manor House is known for having friendly bartenders, great food, cheap drink specials, and a following of local regulars. This is a great place to get a tasty dinner after work, and then stick around at the bar to relax and socialize for a while. The Manor House is open Monday-Saturday 11:00 am-1:00 am and Sunday 11:00 am -12:00 pm.
