This seasonal (May-October) outdoor bar has a bunch of umbrella-covered tables that might make you think you’re in Madison Square Park, except for the fact that you can see the Hudson River and New Jersey. It’s a good spot to day drink with a big group, but there’s no table service - you’ll be notified by a buzzer when your order is ready at the counter.
