This warehouse-sized lounge and game room is cavernous as only a bar in Queens can afford: It’s big enough to house a grid of fourteen billiards tables, two Ping-Pong tables, a foosball table, darts, and Big Buck Hunter. From its second-story perch, you can take in Astoria’s burgeoning industrial-residential sprawl from a wall of tinted glass windows. Break Bar falters a bit with the swank ambitions of its back area—a neon-lit, polished black bar serves uninspired martinis (stick to the beers on tap).
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
