There's a new bar coming to town that I can't wait to check out! We heard a little bit about it, and I wanted to share it with you all.
Called Sweet Afton, its aim is to bring a great local watering hole to Astoria. Look for a warm welcoming vibe, great music, a solid selection of beers on tap, and cocktails using fresh ingredients.
In terms of food, chef PJ Calapa (of Nobu 57 fame) will use fresh local ingredients to make a simple but excellent menu. Burgers, fried pickles, and Irish sausage rolls are a sample of what's to come.
In terms of design, you'll find reclaimed wood, to timber salvaged from buildings in Southeast Asia, to olive barrels from the West Coast. Reused materials, such as light fixtures that have been salvaged and unused for decades, will also be used. Look for some exposed brick as well.
It's coming! We'll keep you updated on the opening (which should be soon) and any other news that comes our way.
