Take a Mental Vacation at this Tropical-Themed Spot
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
We are always looking for a little vacation in the city, and tiki torches and tropical-themed drinks do the trick. With cocktails served in pineapple- and fish-shaped ceramics and kimchi fried rice served in actual pineapples, it’s clear that The Highwater in Astoria fully embraces our relaxed mindset. The food here is not to be missed as well—co-owner George Spilke believes in creating “new experience[s] that feel familiar,” and we see this best executed in the truffle taro fries. Order a plate, kick back, and switch to island time.
Once the tiki flames start burning low, grab the check and duck into Bungalo Lounge Bar. This classic Astoria lounge picks up once the DJ starts. Relax, smoke hookah, and people-watch or get in the middle of all the action on the dance floor.
