What’s at Pier 81: A Look at Our Brands
Launched in 2014, the award-winning North River Lobster Company is NYC’s first casual, fresh, three-floor floating lobster shack. Seasons later, North River Lobster Company still offers fresh seafood, light fare, signature mason jar cocktails, buckets of beer and a raw bar boat in a laid back, casual atmosphere and with even more casual ordering.
Hudson’s is a 3-story seafood lounge and rooftop sailing out of Pier 81 and featuring a 3,000-sq. ft. outdoor top deck and an additional 6,000-sq. ft. of bi-level interior dining space and lounge. The sister-restaurant to the acclaimed North River Lobster Company, Hudson’s is housed on a 160-ft. luxury yacht with expansive indoor and outdoor bars highlighting cocktails and wine curated to pair with Hudson’s unique menu of shareable small plates.
World Yacht brought the luxury dinner cruise business to New York City in 1984 and became the vanguard of experiential dining, hosting the sociocultural luminaries of the 20th and 21st century. Today the World Yacht Duchess continues its luxurious legacy as a charter vessel setting the standard, both in terms of excellence and experience.
