Turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes may be a Thanksgiving Day tradition, but there’s another tradition for Thanksgiving Eve – grabbing a drink (or two!) at your favorite local bars to relax before the big day.

In the Ronkonkoma area, we have a ton of bars to choose from, including everything from swanky cocktail bars to casual pubs. Choose the one that fits your mood and pick up anything from a cold beer to a fine glass of wine on Nov. 25!

Old City Public House, located at 200 Portion Rd, Ronkonkoma which is five minutes from your Alston apartment, is a restaurant and bar serving upscale American pub fare and delicious cocktails, beers and wines.

Owner Jimmy McGuckin was hellbent on the idea of transforming the location that once housed Brownstones into a new neighborhood restaurant and bar that serves amazing food and drink specials. He finally created the Old City Public House, fulfilling a dream that was not only his, but also the community’s.

The Irish Times Pub, located at 975 Main St, Holbrook which is four minutes from your Alston apartment, serves pub-style apps and burgers dished in a laid-back space with 20 TVs, plus weekend DJs and a patio bar.

The Irish Times Pub has been known for their traditional Irish eats fused with American flavors since 2000. They also offer a full range of imported and domestic beers with 40 beers on tap, wine and liquors. It’s a a great place to watch any sporting event and hang out with friends!
