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.
