Even if you’re one of those people who stays in touch with freshman year roommates and the kid who lent you pencils in homeroom, you can bring everyone you know to Bohemian Hall. This beer garden in Astoria is bigger than most NYC parks not named Central, and it’s a great place to spend a summer afternoon drinking steins of Czech beer and eating bratwursts with some friends and 1000 strangers.

Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that’s kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.

The Brooklyneer is most definitely a bar with food, not a restaurant with a bar. But in terms of bar food in New York City, this is some of the best around. Oh, and for all you crazy intense soccer fans out there, The Brooklyneer is the place to watch.
Rose's serves elevated pub grub and an excellent cheeseburger in the original Franny's space, a couple blocks from the Barclays Center.
Wilfie & Nell
Wilfie & Nell is, first and foremost, a place you come to drink, rather than a place you come to eat. Consider it an added bonus that the bar food you'll likely be eating while standing near a tiny ledge is pretty good.
