Brooklyn Barge

The Brooklyn Barge will return this year for its third season at 3 Milton Street near WNYC Transmitter Park, giving patrons a choice of seating on land or on the water. The bar-on-a-boat is a popular idea in the city, but only the Brooklyn Barge offers customers this encompassing view of the midtown Manhattan skyline.

In previous years, Brooklyn Barge will also have great programming: free kayaking, paddle-boarding lessons, tours of historic boats like the tugboat Cornell and the Mystic Whaler, and partners like the Billion Oyster Project.

Goldie’s Bar

There’s an old school, disco-vibe charm to Goldie’s at 195 Nassau Avenue. The owners say the decor is inspired by an old casino. Sit at the horseshoe shaped bar, under glittery lighting or at some of the intimate nooks. There’s a full menu – custom cocktails, beer, wine and prosecco.
