“Spectacular Food and Friendly Bartenders”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on September 21, 2019

After traveling all day I did not want to take the car out and look for a place to eat or walk around alone so decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. I was NOT disappointed. I typically have...


“Excellent Choice”

The service was excellent as was the food! The place wasn't very busy, maybe because it's linked to the Hilton Garden Inn.


“Late dinner with 2 adults and tween”

We stayed at the Riverside Hotel. That review is separate. Drifters is about a two block walk from it. We hoofed it around 8pm in the summer, not bad in the light. It was a bit of a sketchy city...



Directions

PLANES

We're just a short 15 minute cab ride from the JFK airport. Or, take the AirTrain ($5 MetroCard) to the Subway A Line ($2.75 MetroCard) towards Far Rockaway (NOT LEFFERTS BLVD!). Take the A train to the 67th Street stop and exit on the west end of the platform. Walk two blocks up 69th Street and you have arrived.
TRAINS

Take the Subway A Line ($2.75 MetroCard) towards Far Rockaway (NOT LEFFERTS BLVD!). Take the A train to the 67ith Street stop and exit on the west end of the platform. Walk two blocks up 69th Street and you have arrived.
AUTOMOBILES

Street parking during the summer can get pretty crazy, but if you're driving to Rockaway there is usually ample parking downtown on the bay side of the peninsula where we're located. If you park on the streets in front or alongside the house, be aware of street sweeping on Mondays and Wednesdays between 11:30am and 1pm every week!

If you prefer the bus, the Q22 stops just a few blocks away

Policies

DRIFTER operates with a strict cancellation policy, we require 14 days notice for cancellation with a 50% refund and do not issue refunds for reduction in number of guests in group reservations.

DRIFTER IS FOR DOG LOVERS ONLY! Two dogs live on site and occasionally we have guest dogs as well.

This is a communal house and we appreciate everyone cleaning up after themselves, taking care of the home and enjoying and respecting other guests :) Cheers!
