Break Bar is like an amusement park for adults. So instead of face painting and teacups that spin you around until you’re nauseous, this huge, industrial space in Astoria has pool and ping pong tables, mini bocce courts, and giant Connect 4. That all makes it a great spot to day drink with a group, but it also happens to be one of the best sports bars in the city. There are pitchers of beer, great buffalo wings, and TVs and projectors everywhere - including around the pool tables in case you feel like multitasking.

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.
"NO MENUS. JUST FISH" is pretty much everything you need to know about this Astoria restaurant.

Old Town Bar
Over a century of Big Apple history lies within these walls, as does a pretty excellent burger. Come have a beer and pretend your horse is outside.
Looking for a good place to post up for a night of game watching, beer drinking, and good grubbing? Reservoir is the place to do it. Underrated bar food.
