Meet & Greet @ the Frying Pan: Food, Drinks & the Sunset

** RSVP 'yes' only if you are certain you can join us.  No need to RSVP 'no' otherwise.  **

Let's spend some time on the Frying Pan next for some food and drinks (both alcohol and soft drinks are served) while watching the gorgeous sunset.

Come in anytime between 6 - 8pm to meet your friends, but remember you might have to wait in line getting onto the boat the later you come in.

Built in 1929, the Frying Pan's historic lightship (one of the few remaining) is said to have spent three years at the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay before being salvaged and brought to Chelsea Piers to become the ultimate “dive” bar. The boat, docked on a railroad car barge, boasts a musty, barnacle-encrusted interior (complete with catwalks and an exposed engine room) straight out of a Nine Inch Nails video. The far end of the barge often serves as a moody dj lounge and stage for live acts. Booze and burgers are served up on the pier, and a 16-foot observation plank offers a fantastic view of activities on the Hudson.

Undoubtedly the most popular floating landmark in town, the Frying Pan often gets packed early and stays that way until closing.

Food and drinks at the Frying Pan are self-serviced.

How to get there:  The Frying Pan is located three blocks north of Chelsea Piers, on Pier 66 at West 26th Street, in the Hudson River Park.  Take any subway train to  23rd street, transfer to the crosstown M23 bus west to the last stop (at Chelsea Piers), and then walk north to Pier 66.

  • Tom R.

    I'll probably not be there at 6 on the dot, but I'm sure I'll have no trouble finding y'all when I get there!

    1 · August 5, 2014

    • Sabrina

      Take your time, Tom. Expect a little bit of delay because most likely you need to stand in line @ the entrance.

      2 · August 5, 2014

    • Eddie C

      We will keep an eye out for you;)

    August 5, 2014

  • Sabrina

    Email sent about tonight's event. :)

    August 5, 2014

    • Sabrina

      Oh almost forgot, please bring your ID. You will most likely get checked at the entrance.

      2 · August 5, 2014

    • Ro

      Yes definitely bring your IDs. I came here last summer and this poor girl couldn't get in because she forgot her ID at home.

    Isn't it illegal to set up events on a day when a semifinal of a World Cup is being played? ;o)

    June 26, 2014

    • Rob M.

      I think it's illegal everywhere ... Except in the USA
