The current management only allows you to sit at a table if you order an appetizer or dessert. The lounge is only for those who get dinner. If you are just getting drinks you can sit at the bar on the bar stools. These are the rules according to the owners, but not all of the workers are familiar with these rules.
- They have kosher mevushal wines.
- Tricky to locate without a GPS.
- They have a ferry that goes back and forth across the river to Manhattan. Try going for a free ride.
- Call ahead and let them know you are coming just for drinks. The management can be quite unfriendly.
Hours Subject to change. Always verify.
