Cool, unique place

You know, this place is really pretty cool. Very unique atmosphere and in the summer time, it's a must do. Many people grab pitchers of drinks and sit for hours in the afternoon or evening, but we actually went for lunch. I was skeptical because I thought the food would be pretty terrible given... read more

Location, location, this one’s all about location. With a view of Hoboken and Weehawken on the Jersey side, this Chelsea bar pulls in the afterwork crowd and the sunset gazers. Many locals start their night off here, and with a range of cocktails, pitchers and some bottles of wine priced fairly reasonably, an eclectic crowd descends on this permanently anchored... More

We took a bike tour down the west side and stopped at the Frying Pan for lunch. A very unique place. Strongly recommend it. If you like the show BlackList - they filmed some there. You can recognize the location. Like I said Food ok... its the location that sells it.

This is a great place to chill with your friends on sunny days ! It gets a bit chilly in the evening, but honestly, who cares when you can have an iced bucket of Coronas and your friends to share it ;) Great scene for live performances by the way.

The food here is alright—standard burgers, chicken, and beer—but who really cares when you're on a boat with the beautiful panoramic views. You pick up your food from a counter, which actually ends being a good thing, since there aren't any waitstaff to rush you out. However, this means that turnover is low on an already limited-capacity boat. It's best... More

This was on my list to dine at during my first visit to NYC, however never made it, so we tried really hard this time. I was a bit confused whether or not I had the right restaurant, as it's when walking up to it, its apparently called "Pier 63" with that name on a Frying Pan. I had to... More

We had lunch on the barge as soon as we arrived in NYC. We took a nice stroll down manhattan pier from our hotel in Hell's Kitchen and found Frying Pan on the barge boat at pier 63. Really great place! So relaxing, a good atmosphere with a good amount of people enjoying a drink and food in the sun.... More

Wasn't sure what we were getting into coming here. It was planned for us by a friend. I heard that it was a boat. Got there and it is more like a barge, decked into a bar/lounge. It was pretty cool. Music was good. Heard that they have a DJ sometimes. Liked the view, even though it was mostly of... More

This restaurant is very casual where you order your own food and drinks at central area, pick up your food at another bar area and have to search for a table and chairs. We ordered mussels, calamari and fries. Even though we picked the food up right away it was cold and tasted like it was cooked fifteen minutes ago.... More

After a water tour.. this place is a nice walk down the dock. They have lots of outdoor seating and the views are decent but what shines here is the local atmosphere, the friendly staff and the food. Yes it is unusual to find a staff at a restaurant where the people are actually happy and seem to enjoy their... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
