Dutch Kills has the air of an old-world speakeasy with its long, narrow, dark wood-paneled bar, antique cash register and sawdust-covered back room lounge (which is equipped with a piano and hosts a live jazz band). This old world theme extends to the staff's uniforms, as well as the bartenders of Dutch Kills, who are in outfits that have suspenders and bow ties. These elements of dress which were once popular in ages past. The drinks menu at Dutch Kills is quite limited but contains gems like the Steinway Punch, the Astoria Cocktail, and the Flushing Cocktail all of which are amusingly christened after areas in the New York borough of Queens where the bar is located.
