Tips for seeing a show at Pier 17

If you haven't seen a show on The Rooftop at Pier 17 yet, it's worth changing that this summer. With its 3,500 capacity, the venue offers an intimate atmosphere combined with impeccable views of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building, and the Statue of Liberty. 

As for drinks, stop by the Patrón Patio, a lounge with Patrón Tequila cocktails and frozen beverages. If you want to treat yourself, you can add on access to the Grey Goose Terrace, a private rooftop lounge with food and cocktails for purchase, plus an Instagram-worthy backdrop of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Before (or after) the show, there are plenty of delectable dining options near the venue's Seaport location. To name a few: Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s seafood restaurant The Fulton; Tin Building by Jean-Georges; Helene Henderson’s Malibu Farm New York; Andrew Carmellini's Italian chophouse Carne Mare, NoHo Hospitality's Mister Dips, more.  

"The Rooftop at Pier 17 has become a bucket list destination with New Yorkers and visitors from across the country and around the globe, looking forward to the Summer Concert Series every year," Anton Nikodemus, CEO of Seaport Entertainment Group said in a press release. "People are flocking to The Rooftop not just to hear their favorite artists perform live, but for the breathtaking views of the city skyline and to enjoy the best cocktails and food the city has to offer at the Seaport’s surrounding bars and restaurants."
