Sek’end Sun is a casual neighborhood bar right by the Broadway subway station in Astoria. They have special deals most nights of the week (like trivia on Mondays and a daily Happy Hour that runs from 5-8pm and gets you $2 off draft beer, wine, and well drinks). Come here during the warm weather and sit in the big backyard with a date or a friend you roped into doing trivia with - there’s a big neon sign out here that says “Queens” just in case you briefly forget where you are.

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.
