When you live on the Lower East Side, you’re located in one of New York City’s entertainment hubs with restaurants, art galleries, and venues that offer something for everyone. One of these spots that locals love to frequent is just a little downriver at Pier 17. This modern mecca, which has the best-of-the-best in dining and live performance, is just 15-minutes from the One Manhattan Square condos, and it offers everything you’d ever want, whether that’s relaxing in the sun or rocking out with your friends.
Since its reopening in 2018, Pier 17 has become one of the must-perform spaces for the biggest names in music. The outdoor stage has featured everyone from the Fugees to Madonna and Billie Eilish, and The Head and the Heart is just one of the exciting acts that are coming up this spring! Imagine seeing your favorite artist perform as the sun dips behind the skyline and the lights go up on the Brooklyn Bridge, serving as a backdrop to the stage.
For guests who want a more exclusive experience, upgrade your ticket to get access to the Bridge Lounge, a private area where you can escape from the crowd, order some food and cocktails, and take some stunning selfies. If you’d rather be closer to the stage and the action, the Heineken Green Zone is where you want to be. This ticket upgrade will grant you access to a reserved section and dedicated bar, so you won’t be too far away when the band starts playing your favorite song.
Want a more intimate indoor music experience? Check out Pearl Alley, where, from Thursday to Sunday, you’ll find jazz bands and live DJs adding to the vibe of the exquisite, contemporary Roman and Williams-designed space.
Grab a mouthwatering pre- or post-show meal at one of the many offerings at Pier 17. If you’re in the mood for steak, get a reservation at Andrew Carmellini’s Carne Mare. This singular steak house offers beautiful cuts of meat and fresh seafood with a buzzy atmosphere. For dessert or a sweet snack, order an epic cone from Big Gay Ice Cream (where the sprinkles and dip are always free). At Pier 17, you’re sure to find something to satisfy your hunger.
But perhaps the most sensational experience one can have at Pier 17 can be found at The Greens. This impressive outdoor space features mini-lawns and patio seating in the summer and cozy cabins in the colder months, transforming the space into your very own private chalet. The menu features comfort food favorites such as poutine and fried chicken, but the views are what really steal the show. What’s even better, The Greens donates a portion of each party’s reservation fee to various NYC nonprofits that aid those affected by the pandemic, meaning your good time will also be doing some good for your community.
So, when you feel like you need some world-class entertainment, take a quick walk from your home at Extell Development’s One Manhattan Square and see what’s happening at Pier 17. You’re sure to come home inspired, happy, and definitely full. And if you’re not yet a proud resident of One Manhattan Square, contact our team to learn more about our condos.
