Sweet Afton
This homey Queens gastropub combines an industrial feel—lots of concrete and massive beams—with the dim, dark-wood coziness of an Irish pub. The bar’s smartly curated array of reasonably priced suds includes strong selections from craft breweries like Kelso, Fire Island and Captain Lawrence, but the unpretentious bartender will just as happily crack open a cheap bottle or can of everyman ale like Amstel or Miller. Cocktails are ambitious, but many of them fall flat. Stick to a brew and a bite from the satisfying food menu: Beer-battered McClure’s pickles are an epic bar snack.

An unassuming bar in Astoria. I always have a good time when I go to Sweet Afton. A little dark but cozy, it's a good spot for a date or catching up with a friend. There tends to be more of a crowd late nights on the weekend. Live music on Mondays too! I always get the hot cider with bourbon in the colder months, it's delicious. The food is great too, I've tried their dinner and brunch- get the fried pickles or burger.
