From the Daily News:
Queens is slated to get its second beer garden when Studio Square, a 30,000-square-foot bar near Kaufman Astoria Studios, opens Thursday.
The new garden - on 36th St. near 35th Ave. - puts a modern twist on the borough's legacy as a haven for beer gardens.
The bar is the brainchild of four Astoria locals, who purchased a six-story former factory building on the Long Island City-Astoria border and converted it into a space that seats more than 1,000 people and serves nearly 20 imported, domestic and craft beers.
The garden features an expansive outdoor seating area and several interior bars to accommodate patrons in the winter.
The property is within walking distance of four subway lines, and is a few minutes from the Queensboro Bridge.
The bar also serves a number of traditional beer garden specialties, such as bratwurst.
