BLVD Bistro & Bar Attracts Wine and Whiskey Lovers with Over 200 Drink Options, Part of New Owner’s Vision

Feb. 12, 2019 Sponsored Story

The new owner of a Rego Park bar and bistro believes she has the perfect venue for underserved wine, whiskey and sake lovers in Queens.

Catherine Mok, who began running BLVD Bistro & Bar at 61-18 93rd. St. last September, has created a new drink program that features more than 200 types of wine and whiskey options from around the world.

The drink menu lists familiar brands of wine and whiskey, but also includes pricier and lesser known labels that aficionados may have an easier time recognizing.

The extensive wine menu consists mostly of bottles priced under $50. However, wine connoisseurs will be able to spot rare, imported bottles that are priced upwards of $400.

Meanwhile, BLVD’s whiskey menu features over 100 different drink options ranging from Jameson to Boss Hog Whiskey and Limited Edition Yellowstone Bourbon.

“My vision is to bring the best wine and whiskey experience that I can to this community,” the owner said.

In order to curate BLVD’s new drink menu, the owner says she utilized the knowledge she gained from running an upscale wine and liquor store in Long Island in the past 6 years.

Adding to her work experience, Catherine also holds an advanced wine tasting certification bestowed by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), an international body that provides expert training and vigorous testing on knowledge of alcoholic beverages.

“After obtaining this certification, I believe I’ve curated the best wine & whiskey program that caters to aficionados from all walks of life,” she said.

BLVD’s drink menu has evolved over the past three months to also include premium Japanese beers, imported sake and signature cocktails.

In that time, the establishment has hosted a number of public and private events which were well received by attendees, the owner said.

The locale is within a 10-minute walk from the M/R Woodhaven Blvd. and 63rd Dr. subway stations. It is also located about half way between Queens Center Mall and the Rego Shopping Center.

From now until April 30, customers who present a shopping receipt from either mall will receive 10% off their bill at BLVD Bistro & Bar.* This offer applies indefinitely to all customers who hire a taxi, Uber or Lyft to the bar and present a receipt that reflects this trip.*

Its normal hours of operation are:

Monday to Thursday: 5 p.m. – 12 a.m.
Friday: 5 p.m. – 1 a.m.
Saturday: 5 p.m. – 1 a.m

Readers can follow the establishment on Facebook at BLVD Bistro & Bar and on Instagram @blvd_bistro

*10% off discount may only be redeemed once per individual, per presented receipt, once every 24 hours. Once a receipt has been redeemed, that specific receipt may not be used again for future discounts. Receipts can not be combined for larger discounts.
