Summer drinks on a breezy patio—with views of the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s more accessible than you think. The Lookout is the newest addition to the growing clutch of bars and restaurants on Pier 17, one that checks all the happy hour boxes: a fun, approachable, covered outdoor space with lots of comfortable seating for you and your crew. A highly Instagrammble backdrop—Curtis Kulig’s Love Me installation—and getaway-inspired drinks and bites menu seal the deal. Swing by Monday to Thursday, 3PM–12AM, Friday & Saturday, 12PM–1AM and Sunday, 12PM–12AM. And don’t miss the August special—$8 glasses of rosé all day.
With some of New York’s best restaurants, bars, luxury boutiques and unique outdoor spaces (like Pier 17 and the cobblestones of Fulton Street), the Seaport is always offering something new to see, do, taste and experience. No more so than in the summer, when pop-ups, art installations and special events hit the cobblestones and the pier. Like these latest additions to the neighborhood.

In addition to the Seaport’s Summer by the Sea art installations throughout the district, a partnership with Wallplay Network brings pop-up installations to two spaces in the neighborhood this summer.
Wallplay’s mission is to transform vacant commercial spaces and storefronts into venues for experimental creative projects.
Lauren Farrell NY
10 Fulton Street
The love of the game launched American fashion designer Lauren Farrell into business—she started out with a line of sporty handbags in 2015 and went on to create customized game-day bags for female fans looking for something unique and stylish to tote to the stadium. Farrell’s line has since developed beyond the game-day theme, with a range of stylish clutches, totes and cross-body bags. Peruse the collection at Lauren Farrell’s Seaport pop-up open until early September. (The perfect time to pick up something for the approaching football season.)
6 Fulton Street
The perfect piece of jewelry can complete an outfit and Alexis Bittar’s elegant, bold creations more than fit the bill. The brand is best known for hand-carved Lucite bangles, a signature item since the label’s inception by designer Alexis Bittar in 1990. Along with these classics, you’ll find a range of luxurious yet accessible pieces—necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings—in the Alexis Bittar pop-up here in the Seaport.
