July 10, Staff Report
Sidetracks, the popular Irish bar/restaurant, closed for renovations yesterday and is scheduled to reopen in mid August, according to a notice on the door.
The establishment, which has been located at 45-08 Queens Blvd for nearly 30 years, has undergone some significant changes over the years.
About 15 years ago Sidetracks offered residents a place to bet, doubling as an Off-Track Betting outpost. The owners got rid of its OTB concept about 10 years ago when the establishment underwent its last major overhaul.
The restaurant today serves as a higher-end Irish restaurant/sports bar. It is also a party venue.
The owner(s) of the bar/restaurant could not be reached for comment.
