By day, wireless internet and a solid selection of coffees, soft drinks, and baked goods attract Queens commuters looking for a study nook. After hours, the bookshelves and local artwork are overshadowed by performances on a low-slung stage downstairs. Song Gonzalez, a pianist and one of the bar’s co-founders, has a heavy hand in the programming of jazz (from the likes of Gypsy guitarist Stephen Wrembel or the duo Connie Brooks and Ryan Olsen), classical, and spoken word. The attraction isn’t in the liquid offerings—there’s only wine and bottled beer—but grab a table if you find yourself culturally lacking in Astoria.
