Pier A Harbor House: The Lay of the Land

Pier A logoThe folks at Pier A Harbor House (“established 1886”) sent a PDF brochure over to Pen Parentis‘s M.M. De Voe, who had so kindly taken many photos inside Pier A. It explains what will be where in the 28,000-square-foot facility….

Ground floor

The short version, if you just don’t feel like clicking to enlarge: The Long Hall (pun intended?) is a big beer hall; the Oyster Bar is what it sounds like; the Promenade is outdoor dining. The whole floor can hold 600 guests, and there’s also a coffee bar, gallery, and visitor’s center. I think we can assume that the right side of the floor plan corresponds to where the pier starts.

Second floor

“A fine-dining experience will unfold in a honeycomb of intimate rooms”—with seating for 132 guests, as well as the State Room (private dining for 60 guests). Plus, there are two bars: The Harrison Room, which is the “power bar” (and which I hope they ran by Jimmy Bradley) and the Commissioner’s Room, specializing in cocktails and Champagne.

It’s only for private events (175 standing, 100 seated).

  1. Hilarious choker references and mock photos. Must have been like a Where’s Waldo game being played there. The beer hall looks like something out of a blend of Hugo and the Gangs of New York. Is Scorsese an investor here or are the developers just huge fans?
