William Hallet bar in Astoria continuously goes all out for Halloween and this year is no exception.

Located at 36-10 30th Ave., the bistro and bar transformed into Moe’s Tavern from “The Simpsons.”


According to owner George Rallins, the bar gave its customers a chance to vote on the bar’s costume and Moe’s Tavern was the most popular choice. This is the third year the bar has been dressed up for the holiday. Last year, the bar was outfitted to resemble “Bob’s Burgers.” For the first year, William Hallet turned into Paddy’s Pub from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

“We try to one up the previous year as far as exterior costuming,” Rallis said.

The bar will also host two halloween parties on Oct. 29 and Oct. 31.

“Saturday’s party is for those who can’t make it out on a Monday night and Monday is for the hardcore Halloweeners and people who don’t care that they work the next day,” he said.

The bar will serve drinks like Flaming Moe’s without the cough syrup –  “we don’t want the ATF and DEA crashing the party,” Rallis said.

Other drink options include Drunken Donuts, Million Dollar Fries and DUFF beer.
