Honorable William Wall Bar

The Honorable William Wall Bar is the Manhattan Yacht Club’s floating clubhouse. Situated between Liberty State Park’s terminal building and Ellis Island, the bar is accessible from the shores of Jersey City or Manhattan. While aboard, you’ll find sailboats and commuter ferries passing by as you sip on cocktails.

From Jersey City, you can reach the bar via the Admiral’s Launch vessel, which is situated at Surf City restaurant and bar at 1 Marin Blvd (walk to the floating dock). Boats leave Jersey City every half hour from 5:30 to 8:30 (see the 2017 schedule for days and dates); tickets should be reserved ahead of time on its website. From Manhattan, take the Liberty Landing ferry, which departs from the WTC ferry terminal at the end of Vesey Street on the Little Lady ferry.

Dull Boy


Located on Grove Street, Dull Boy bar offers a diverse cocktail menu that appeals to all types of palates. In addition to classic drinks, it serves creative cocktails, created by Dull Boy’s team of mixologists. Try the Rosieoak and the Catherine from the contemporary menu.

Because the bar doesn’t get terribly packed, it’s a great place for a night cap. Make sure to also stop by for its amazing dinner menu, which is served Wednesday through Saturday (notice how the bar upcycled the sign from the previous business).

Location: Located at 364 Grove St., near Grove St. Path station.
