Residents of the stylish Lower East Side homes at One Manhattan Square enjoy sweeping New York Harbor views, complete with the iconic Statue of Liberty and the rising Downtown Brooklyn skyline. But you can’t truly appreciate One Manhattan Square and its surrounding skyscrapers without seeing it from the harbor’s point of view, and there’s no better way for residents to get a sense of their home’s place in New York City than with a glass of wine in hand and a good band playing nearby.
That’s where the Sunset Wine & Jazz Cruise comes in. Held aboard the majestic Clipper City tall ship, the highest-capacity passenger sailing ship in the United States, this cruise is the perfect setting for a romantic date or evening out with friends. The ship sets out from Pier 17, just south of One Manhattan Square on the waterfront, and sails the harbor for nearly two hours, during which passengers will be treated to sets by renowned jazz performers as well as an open wine bar. As the sky dims, passengers will see the sweep of stars over the harbor, bordered by the bright lights of Manhattan, New Jersey, and Brooklyn.
Thanks to Clipper City’s partnership with Jazz Generation, the Jazz Cruise books top-shelf NYC musical talent, with a rotating set of musicians drawn from the city’s legendary jazz club circuit. Casual fans and true jazz heads alike will be treated to tight sets ranging in style from smoky blues and ballads to standards, all set against the unforgettable backdrop of the historic ship and glimmering city beyond.
Of course, the open wine bar is the other main attraction, featuring a bottle selection curated by the Clipper City bar staff, while passengers who prefer a stiff drink with their jazz have access to a full cocktail bar. Once the ship returns safely to port, residents of the One Manhattan Square condos can head to their lofty homes for a nightcap and one last look out at the harbor before turning in.
Landlubbing residents needn’t feel left out, thanks to One Manhattan Square’s spacious wine room, which features climate-controlled storage as well as an intimate tasting room where they can sip their favorite vintage without fear of falling overboard. So, whether you’re a sailing aficionado or a landlocked vintner, One Manhattan Square is the perfect place to lay your head each night.
