Visit the Sunday Sessions at the Rise on the Ravel hotel. LIC’s ultra trendy rooftop bar. Equipped with big comfy lounges, DJs, cleavage, muscles, and tans- all within the brilliant New York City skyline.
The nights are hot, cool down with some beer and flamenco at Studio Square– Astoria’s hip new beer garden. David Castellana vocalist/guitarist will be taking you on a musical Spanish journey at 8pm August 25th.
