The Opening Plans

Earlier last week, Pier 13 Instagram page posted a video of their friends over at Departed Soles Brewing Co. hopping up a fresh batch of Pier Beers for the 2021 season, foreshadowing that opening day should be right around the corner. When a customer commented asking what day they were planning to officially open their doors, the staff responded back with, “Soon.”

Just this Friday, April 16th, the Pier’s Instagram announced it would be open for a pop-up this weekend starting at 12PM on Saturday.

If this year replicates any of the previous, then it is likely that this space will stay open until mid-October and feature the same extensive menu of beers and specialty frozen beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options available. It will also be home to DJ appearances, scheduled movie nights, and Sunday Funday football projected on a large screen later this fall.

It is unclear if Pier 13 will be open consistently, or just this weekend till further notice — so stay tuned to their IG for updates. The Pier website still says “Coming Real Soon.”

Food Trucks + Drinks Menu

In addition to Pier beer mentioned above, you’ll find alcohol options ranging from frozen margaritas {among many other renditions of icy cold beverages} to spiked seltzers and generously sized rum buckets.

Another popular staple that helped this venue gain fame is a line of daily food trucks welcoming visitors as they walk up the long colorful entryway. Back in January, the Pier team posted on social media giving local companies the opportunity to share an image of their truck and menu to be considered for inclusion.

While the official list of who will be participating has yet to be released, there can be some predictions based on regular vendors in recent years including Pizza Vita and Amanda Bananas, a healthy gluten-free and vegan alternative to ice cream made 100% out of fruit.

The Location

Pier 13 is located at 1301 Sinatra Drive. Just steps away outside of the venue, you can also rent kayaks or jet skis if looking out at the Hudson River inspires you to test out the waters yourself.

If you are planning to hop around the town, other local uptown bars just a few blocks away include The Madison, City Bistro, The Shepherd + The Knucklehead, Hudson Tavern, and Pilsener Haus & Biergarten.

After eight years in NYC, last summer Kim made the big decision to permanently join her boyfriend on the other side of the river in the Mile Square. Since her college days at NYU, Kim has always been a huge fan of hopping on the PATH to experience the restaurants, events, and nightlife on the other side, and since moving has really enjoyed further getting to explore all that this "mini-city" and the surrounding areas have to offer. These days when not recruiting for her full-time job as a Talent Acquisition Manager at Wunderkind, she can be found running along the Pier to the latest country hits, spending hours putting her Lifetime Movie Club subscription to good use, or likely plotting her next Seamless order to #supportlocalbusinesses.
