The High Water is a tropical-themed bar in Astoria where the cocktails have names like “Naughty or Nice” and “Drunk Grandma.” And they’re all pretty solid and interesting - although you can skip the one with gummy bear vodka. The space is just one room with high ceilings and potted plants, and there are a bunch of tables where you can hang out with a small group, eat some snacks like guacamole and fried chicken, and drink something out of a tiki mug.
