Astoria has always been one of those dreaded answers to the “what part of town do you live in” question rather than an area that you’d actually – unless he was very hot or you were very wasted – go to. Yet Icon Astoria is aiming to attract more than locals too lazy to head into Manhattan.

Taking over the site of the former Censo Lounge, the venue is plush and the feel more like an upscale Hell’s Kitchen bar than the usual Queens hole-in-the wall watering holes. Besides your own shenanigans, entertainment will be provided by live shows, drags and DJs, with not a single TV to be found on these premises.

That might not sound like enough of a draw for an outing to this end of the yellow N/R subway line but if you’re in the vicinity, go get down with the locals.
