Central Park Boathouse
New York, NY 10023
Village Voice's Description
The drinks can get pricey at the Central Park Boathouse, which has presided over the park's Great Lake for over a century, but you're paying for the unobstructed, cinematic view of Manhattan--on a outdoor deck, no less. The outdoor bar of the boathouse entertains a hardcore polo-and-cardigan crowd who meander in from the nearest cab stop, Fifth Avenue and 72nd. Choose among a clean selection of single-malt Scotches and cocktails made for sipping with genteel authority, such as the All-Berry Martini (Smirnoff Strawberry Vodka, raspberry puree, Chambord, cranberry juice, and a splash of champagne).
Tips from foursquare
Deliciously good and fashionable! A fav spot in fashionable movies. Be seen here and you might be picked up by an agent…
To avoid waiting for a table in the main dining room, sit at the bar, where the menu choices are the same, while enjoying a draft beer.
Sex and the City happened here. "Don't let him kiss you, that seems to be where you get into trouble." After Big and Carrie fell in love, they fell in the pond.
Order the crabcakes!
If the main menu is out of your price range, pick up a quick bite from the Boathouse’s express café and dine at a lakeside table.
