A horror-themed bar and restaurant, The Flying Fox Tavern, is providing family-friendly fright in Ridgewood, Queens. 

The Flying Fox Tavern welcomes the community and all interested in the strange and spooky. Tracy Bradbury, owner, and Chad Johnson, chef and owner of The Flying Fox Tavern, created a menu inspired by British pubs, with scary affordable options such as the vegan haggis, served on whipped potatoes with a dram of scotch ($16) and the Pat LaFrieda 8-ounce burger with caramelized onions and garlic aioli on a brioche bun ($16). 

Sip on “The Count” cocktail ($12) and other beverages named after iconic vampires in the classic horror-movie-themed decor of the Tavern. If not for your Halloween destination, visit The Flying Fox Tavern for their community monthly events like “Count Brunchula” family brunch or a lecture series, “The House of Know” curated by Mike Lewi of Phantom Creep Theatre.
