PLAN DATE: SUN / APR. 1
With a spacious bar, outdoor patio, and generous portions, Sek’end Sun is making good on its mission to bring delicious cocktails to an exciting locale. Located on a busy street near the N/Q station, this neighborhood bar draws city crowds with its daily specials, sandwiches, and of course, its cocktails. The And How, made with gin, aperol, cucumber, lime, and absinthe is a fan favorite, as is the Vibe All Night, with rum, white vermouth, sage, cucumber, and lemon. Whether you stick to small plates or opt for the heftier entrees, Sek’end Sun is a great place to kick it on a Sunday.
Continue your Astoria bar hop and dip in to Astoria Bier and Cheese, which offers–cue the suspense–a diverse selection of rotating meats, cheeses, and craft beers. Purchase selections to go, or enjoy tapas in the shop, where the grilled cheese selection and housemade bier and cheese pretzel provide ample reason to stay.
32-11 Broadway Avenue, Astoria
idk tip: Mondays are trivia nights at Sek’end Sun, hosted by Geeks Who Drink. Don’t worry if you don’t have a team–they can usually make room for you on an existing one.
Astoria Bier & Cheese
34-14 Broadway, Astoria
idk tip: If you’d rather eat-in with a bottle of wine, head next door to Astoria Wine & Spirits for some vino, and they’ll help you pair it with any of their cheeses on offer.
