City Winery recently signed a 25 year lease in Hudson River Park, and will soon be moving its flagship winery there from its current SoHo location.
With Disney moving into the space at 155 Varick Street, City Winery will be moving out and up to Pier 57. The new area will be shared with Google but will take up a whopping 32,000-square-feet of which was once the Marine and Aviation Pier.
According to their press release, City Winery’s new home will have plenty of amenities including two performance venues, a 350-seat concert hall, a loft space that fits 150, a 100-seat restaurant and tasting room, and of course their fully functioning winery. Their wine facility and barrel storage will be visible from the entrance, and their restaurant will offer gorgeous views of the Hudson River Park along with a pizza bar and a coffee roasting station. The tasting bars are said to feature over 12 wines straight from the keg.
President and CEO of Hudson River Park, Madelyn Wils, said in a statement that “City Winery is loved both in the community and across the city by New Yorkers who know there’s nowhere better to see a concert while enjoying locally produced food and wine.”
Their new flagship space is slated to open in 2020, with construction beginning soon. Once open, the winery will have an entrance at West 15th Street (near Chelsea Market and the Whitney Museum) and will be open daily.
