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.

Bill's Bar & Burger
We had hoped that instead of conforming to Midtown, Bill’s Bar and Burger would make Midtown conform to it. It did not.
If you’re in Gowanus, and you need a normal bar that’s just a little nicer than a dive, go to Halyards. There’s a pool table and occasionally a DJ.
The Stumble Inn
When you want to feel like an undergrad and watch sports on the Upper East Side, head to The Stumble Inn.
