I get out of work at 11, sometimes 1130 every week night. i usually am in the mood to go for drinks but theres nowhere to go on a monday tuesday or wednesday. I dont feel like going to the typical grk cafes or a irish bar type. any other lounges open late on weekday???

      The Sparrow has good ambience and decent food.
      It's on 24th Ave across from the Beer Garden, between the Ditmars and Astoria stops.

          just heard about this new place called winegasm- on 37th street between 31st ave and broadway. Sounds very interesting- they're doing their "soft opening" on Saturday. They don't list times on their websites, but it looks worth checking out when it really opens.

        what abt central and cavo ? cavo even has live music a few nites a week. theyre both greek places, but not just cafes.

          i think central is maybe open on wednesday. im not a fan of either bc of how packed they get on weekends, but i havnt thought of going on a weekday. are they open that late mon-wed though?
