Sailing diehards can get three sheets to the wind at this two-story booze barge, moored in the Hudson River near Ellis Island during warm-weather months. Accessed via a vintage launch departing from Battery Park's North Cove Marina, the 140-person waterborne watering hole is the official clubhouse for the Manhattan Sailing Club. At the open-air bar on the upper deck, cheer on regattas over plastic cups filled with $5 beers (Coors Light, Heineken) or dark and stormys. Food is BYO, or order from a nearby restaurant and have it launched over to the floating clubhouse.
