These Astoria Bars and Restaurants Are Ideal for Queens Night Owls

Because you’ve had all the debauchery you could possibly have in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

You’ve danced in Bushwick and the Meatpacking District until the break of dawn, hopped around every dreary East Village and Lower East Side dive, and congregated in Williamsburg’s watering holes while waiting for the L train to show up at the Bedford Avenue station (and on weekends, that could take a long while). If you’ve drank and eaten your way around every night owl–friendly neighborhood, it’s time to consider a trip to Astoria.

Queens has been relatively quiet on the nightlife front until a few years ago, when all your friends were lured to the borough by the promise of cheap rent and cheaper entertainment. The heart of its late-night scene beats in Astoria, and these are some of our favorite spots to linger until last call.
