Long before the Dutch settled in the place now known as Astoria and Long Island City,
Native Americans called this rich land home. The name Sunswick derives from the local
Native American word Sunskisq, meaning place of the chiefs wife. The area around the
Sunswick Creek, which ran from the East River straight to Astoria, has always proven to be a place where community thrives. Today at Sunswick we remember that warm senseof community and invite you to step away from the hassles of the day and enjoy yourneighborhood home away from home.
Sunswick 35-35, located at the corner of 35th Avenue and 35th Street in Queens, was established in late 2005 under newownership. Pioneering hops-head Juan Cruz introduced craft suds to Astoria—then a hinterland for quality guzzling—with Sunswick 35/35. After careful restoration and a lot of TLC, we are proud to offer 25 beers on tap, some not-so typical pub-grub, and a knowledgeable staff dedicated to friendly service.
