New Beaches and New Season

There is a lot of discussion about our new beaches. We want you to know this will be a great place to learn about what is happening.

It is widely known now that we are opening a beach on Governors' Island and at the South Street Seaport.

Here are some details.

The Governor's Island (WTB/GI) beach will have a sandy beach area plus a live music venue featuring live bands and other live acts Thurs - Sunday. Many nights will also feature DJs after the band. Come for the band, stay for the view and the DJ. There will be food but we are still working on the final menu. Governor's Island is expected to open the week of July 4th. We have a very special DJ set for July 5th.

The beach at south street seaport (WTB/SSS), will open the week of Memorial Day Weekend. This beach will have a sandy area for food and sunning but it will be smaller than the other locations. This beach will feature some interesting activities. We will have ping pong, Skee ball and Mini Golf (9 holes). We will have a lot of interesting food here, including some seafood. That will include a raw bar on the weekends but we are not planning serving any steamed bi-valves.

The beach at Long Island City (WTB/LIC) will have it's first event on April 18th and 26th with Melting Pot Global. We will have events every weekend in May. Our grand re-opening will be Memorial Day Weekend with a special Louie Vega event on Saturday May 23rd ($20 at the door / $10 in advance). We have DJ events every Thurs through Sunday and most Wednesdays as well. Typically the Thurs door fee will be $5, Friday and Saturday will be $10, and Sunday will vary up to $40. Sundays in July and August are FREE. Unless otherwise announced door fees start at 8pm; Sundays in June & Sept the fee and event starts at 1pm
