Grand Banks is your new summer drinking destination. With delicious cocktails and oysters served on the deck of a historic wooden sailboat, how could it not be? Topside, you can enjoy drinks created by our friend Rene Hidalgo (also of Lantern’s Keep), while below decks you’ll find a maritime museum. The location in Tribeca, right off North Moore Street, is just a few blocks from the subway, making it a great spot for after work drinks. The daytime hours (they plan to open at noon) make it a great choice for weekend (or weekday!) drinking too.
Due to a quirk in Grand Banks’ liquor license, the menu features low-ABV (Alcohol By Volume) cocktails, with ingredients like vermouth, sherry and amaro – perfect for drinking in the sun. Think the Champagne Cobbler – which combines bubbly with seasonal berries – or the perennially delicious Pimm’s Cup. Each evening there will be one hard-alcohol cocktail available as well, like the Java Swizzle, which includes light rum, lime, simple syrup and Borghetti espresso liqueur. There is also a good selection of beers and wines by the glass.
