With one of the most astounding views of the Manhattan skyline, The Brooklyn Barge is one of our favorite to-go spots. The place is totally off-the-beaten-track, just like we love. Even getting there is an adventure making it one of Greenpoint’s gems.

Even getting there – at night – looks a bit sketchy since you need to walk through a long, dark alley, with huge warehouses on both sides with abandoned old cars. We even found an abandoned yellow cab that reminded us of the movie “The Bone Collector“. We love it!

The Brooklyn Barge is quite big, with huge communal wooden tables that accommodates big parties without a problem.

Drinks are served on a floating deck or barge. If you pay attention, you can slightly feel the rocking of the platform on the water. Don’t worry, you won’t feel sick…

This Greenpoint gem serves a few dishes like:

  • Tacos with different fillings (garlic shrimp/adobo chicken/chipotle pork/grilled fish/marinated skirt steak)
  • One the most amazing fries you will ever eat
  • Guacamole with pickled jalapeño
  • Grilled and chilled corn in a cup (yummy!)
  • Hotdogs
  • Harpooned shrimp
  • A few salad options
  • A couple sandwiches including a veggie burger for vegetarians (like us!)
  • And to finish in great style…churros for dessert!

During the Summer, they offer during the day super cool Kayak and Stand Up Paddle Boarding lessons. It happens from 10am – sunset. How stunning would it be to find yourself on a stand up paddle, while the sun is setting behind Manhattan!?

Sunsets there are a-m-a-z-i-n-g, so you can go there during the day. But, if you’re the type that can continue having fun for hours and hours…and hours, stay there to enjoy their nightlife! Certainly, a Greenpoint gem.

You might think also about celebrating your birthday there. Your friends will surely talk about it for weeks and weeks.

They are opened 7 days a week!
