The name pretty much sums it up: it is a beach-like bar, which you can get to by the water taxi on 35 st., it’s right next to the Hunters Point ferry stop. There are picnic tables and lots of sand overlooking the East River (great views of midtown) During the day you can do whatever you do at the beach (tan, play volleyball, burn, drink beer, and check out guys/gals, consider lipo and drink more beer). After 8 pm there is a $10 to $15 cover and the place turns into wannabe Ibiza rave. A nice option in a hot summer’s day, when you are just too lazy or snobbish to go to Rockaway or Brighton beach.
Water taxi $5 and free after 8 pm
Hours: Mon-Tues, 6pm-10pm; Wed-Fri, 4pm-midnight; Sat, noon-midnight; Sun, 1pm-midnight; closed during winter season
