Bring your sunglasses! – Perfect place to sit down and have a drink on a nice day.
Great Happy Hour Spot – I love coming here for happy hour! Most outdoor bars are sort of unbearable on humid, summer days. This one is right on the Hudson, so the breeze off the Hudson helps cool you off. The view form the upper level is amazing!
Sunset is a MUST! – Great little spot to come for a late after noon bite & drink in the warm weather. Bring a friend!
Great Views, Food & A Little History Too – Great city location for summer fun. Food is delicious and always fantastic people watching spot. Get aboard an old boat or in an old train car. Lots of fun!!!
Best place to spend the summer – Frying Pan on the West Side rocks! I went there for an event recently and was wowed by the amazing views of the Manhattan skyline. It's a great place for a date, or just to hang out and have a drink with friends. Some of the drinks were a bit overpriced, and it's a pain to get to (all the way on the West Side Highway and 26th) but it's definitely one of my top 5 spots for summer.
Finally OPEN again!!!!! – Hi - I am a bartender at the Frying Pan, and I just wanted to let everyone know that, as of July 4th 2008, we are finally OPEN again! Yesssssssss! Location is slightly different than before, 3 blocks north of where we used to be - our pier is now #66a, located at 26th Street on the Hudson River.
Good open air bar with casual fun atmosphere. – This is a great place to go when the weather is amazing, and summer is in full bloom. I wouldn't say that it is the best place in the city, but the drinks are cheap, and you can hang out outside with plenty of space to walk around. The crowd is definitely not a Manhattan kind of crowd, and that can be a welcome relief sometimes. They often have interesting concerts, and dress is usually pretty casual. Go in loose clothing and casual shoes, and relax and dance with the band.
Worse Service in the City – Save your money & effort. This place is no good. They first served us a frozen drink & then 30 minutes later refused because they were "too busy"!!! I will never go there again & you shouldn't even try. The people there are no good.
the best pirate ship! – this is my fav spot in nyc! the food is fabulous and you get to watch the sunset on a pirate ship. what could be better? o that a pirate actually hangs out there.. and yes that happens! if you go on a night where there is a smirky bartender who wears his sunglasses at night, watch out. His bartending skills are lacking, but you wouldn't know based on his super inflated ego. The other bartenders are great! there is always LOTS of seating. Go and have fun matey! ARRRRRR
The salvaged ship plays host to memorable parties. – In Short
A lightship off the coast of North Carolina between 1929 and 1964, the Frying Pan remained submerged and abandoned for years in an inlet of the Chesapeake Bay before it was brought to New York in the '80s. The quirky boat--with many of its original seafaring details intact--makes an evocative location for dance parties, live bands and theater.
