We made the trip to Brooklyn on a Sunday afternoon not quite knowing what to expect. What we got was an hour and a half of great classical music (Mozart Piano Quartet, Mendelssohn Piano Trio, Bach) played by amazing classical musicians on a gently rocking...More

This place was so beautiful. My boyfriend brought me here for my birthday to hear Handel and Beethoven sonatas. I'm not really good on boats so at first the swaying bothered me. Once I focused on the performance I was fine. It's a recital atmosphere....More

Some of the finest classical musicians perform at the intimate Barge Music venue at ticket prices that are a fraction of concert halls prices. We Brooklyn locals and some savvy tourists know that this gorgeous space offers air conditioned views of Manhattan -- particularly striking...More

This was our first experience at Bargemusic - what an unexpected treat! Having attended numerous classical concerts, we had heard through friends how Bargemusic was presenting high-level, quality artists. We were impressed with the intimate and romantic setting it offered. The artist featured last night...More

Visited end October with a lovely autumnal vibe in surrounding Brooklyn Bridge Park. Great location for River Cafe and Ice cream factory. Wonderful backdrop to hear the Manhattan Symphony play Beethoven amongst others. Just a little different to everything else on offer. Great experience.

I took a friend visiting NYC, it's a nice change from all the touristy things, very local. Amazing musicians and music and gorgeous views of the city and Brooklyn.

On the Brooklyn waterfront, inside a barge which sways to the water currents, this is a venue which promises innovative musical efforts. Not for the close minded classical in heart.

Parked just under the Brooklyn end of the Brooklyn Bridge, Bargemusic is, in fact, a barge that can accommodate an audience of about 60. It offers stunning views of Manhattan, exquisite music, and an atmosphere of quiet, unpretentious pleasure. Either before or after, you can...More

Such a lovely setting for chamber music. The audience was friendly and the players really connected personally. The view is lovely. It is a bit disconcerting that the barge rocks and rolls on the water throughout the evening. If you are prone to dizziness or...More

The times I've gone people ranged from business casual to formal. I think you'd feel comfortable in anything's for more substantial than shorts or a bathing suit. Dark jeans and a blazer would be fine.
