La Casina is a historic commercial building located in the Jamaica section of the New York City borough of Queens. It was originally built about 1907 and completely redesigned about 1936 in the Streamline Moderne style. It is one story building designed for use as a nightclub. It has a streamlined facade in the form of a stepped pyramid or ziggurat. The building retains its original vertical neon sign. From the 1940s through 1987, the building housed a clothing factory.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990,[1] and a New York City Landmark in 1996.[3]
