This is one of the best locations in NY City, for the best laid back time of your life! This is the formula, live music, great cocktails, and a view to die for watching the sun come down on the Hudson. The burgers taste like you were at your best friend's backyard grilling, on the side you have the tastiest garlic fries, crab cakes with crab pieces in you can see and taste for a reasonable price. Drinks are cheap, the service is great. Bartenders are fun, polite and although it is busy, they are quick.All this as you hang out with a crowd that is just as happy as you are celebrating out on a barge... then when the night comes to an end (yes, they do close up for the night) you head up 12th Avenue to a cab or public transportation. Happy that you have had one of the best times in NY.

This “lightship”—a floating lighthouse once used by the Coast Guard—sank while docked in Maryland and spent three years underwater. Later salvaged, she is now a floating bar near Chelsea Piers.
