Maggie Mae’s Reopens Today After Extensive Upgrade

Maggie-Maes1Feb. 26, 2015 By Christian Murray

Maggie Mae’s, the well known bar located at 41-15 Queens Blvd, reopens at 5:00 p.m. today after being closed for renovations for nearly a month.

The bar closed for construction on Feb. 1, and its owners have rebuilt much of the interior with 1800s reclaimed wood.

New floors have been put down. A new bar has been built, alongside new timber seats and tables.

“I just came in as an owner /partner last month and felt it was time for a revamp and I like the rustic look,” said James Moore, the former manager at Maggie Mae’s who now co-owns it with Sean Sorohan. “The neighborhood is also changing–there are a lot of new people coming to the area.”

The renovation is still not 100 percent complete but Moore said he is ready to reopen.

The update looks really great and it would definitely be a place that I would want to hang out if it weren’t for the terrible music. It literally drove us out when we stopped by to see the new digs. They need to take a page from Venturo’s book if they want the type of atmosphere their new look implies they’re looking for.


Here here. They have had a good happy hour. I hope that stays around. The interior was in need of at minimum a thorough cleaning, so I can’t wait!
