During the last few weekends of summer (yes, it’s true, sigh) you might want to spend some time exploring different areas of the city. Well, there is one exotic location that’s a lot closer than Brighton Beach or City Island. Roosevelt Island is a short tram ride away, but it used to be a pretty lackluster journey because there weren’t any cool bars to chill at after you explore. Well, Pier NYC has changed all that – not only can you score some boozy beverages, you can do so while taking in gorgeous views of Manhattan. Yes, please.
If you’re afraid of heights, the F Train also makes a stop on the Island – the bar is pretty close to both modes of transport so you won’t have to worry about an arduous journey. If that’s still not enough to lure you over, the bar has started playing host to stand up comedy – the next session is coming up on August 30 at 8 PM. Get more info here.
