In the spirit of making summer last a little longer, could we recommend enjoying the sunshine aboard a beautiful boat? Pilot is a cocktail bar on a historic schooner with an illustrious history. The eponymous ship was built in 1924 to compete with the fastest sailboats in the world. After 50 years of service, she has now retired in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge.
If you’re feeling intrepid, maybe walk across the bridge and reward yourself for your hard work with a Skipper Key, a low-ABV, Cassis-based, sparkling rosé and strawberry highball. Along with an inventive drinks menu, Pilot serves a selection of delicious sea-inspired fair, such as a variety of oysters, bream ceviche, soft-shell crab, lobster rolls, and caviar—a fantastic menu and a beautiful view.
