A few random notes: -------------------------------------------------- -------- 1. bottled blueeberry beer! (+) 2. shmelly bathrooms (-) 3. delicious calamari & fries (+) 4. you're on a boat! (+) 5. re:#4, seasickness is a possibility (-) 6. "location premium" aka $$ in a night (-) 7. end-of-meal ambiguity / trashcans?? (-) 8. agree with the part-bar & part-museum comment (+) 9. music is meh. (-) Cool experience. If you want to bring your friends somewhere neat, this is the place! If you want to get back at a frenemy, this is the place too..... "man overboard" is a total possibility. Might as well prepare yourself, you will inevitably hear some remark about this song, if you visit The Frying Pan: http://www.youtube.com... Would I come back? Sure. Minus stars for being overpriced and under-sanitized, though. Bummer.

Neat spot, fun set up, $7 bottles of Ommegang Witte, impressive fries Located in the Hudson River, The Frying Pan, a133-foot lightboat, spent three years underwater before being rescued, resuscitated (er, mostly), and finally turned into a summer late night hot spot at Pier 66. She's a bit creaky and rough around the edges (avoid the loos if you can), but the views of the skyline, refreshing breeze, Old Bay fries ($3), and $7 Ommegang Wittes, make her worth a visit.

A weird place in a weird part of town, the Sullivan Room is a little tough to find. Once you find it, and after a long walk downstairs, you find a seriously decent space with very solid sound. The DJ booth is close to as good as it gets, and the results on the main system are evident. DJs here have all the tools neccessary to pump out their best work, and the clubs patrons are rewarded with some solid sounds. Theres lots of decent seating, but the bar is overcrowded and very pricey, even for big city standards. $8 for a cheap domestic bottle of beer is highway robbery no matter where you are. But the sound and music almost make up for it.
