Over the years, we’ve a-mast tons of unique spots across the city, but Sunken Harbor Club is a hidden gem like no other!
Beginning as a weekly pop-up for 8 years at owner St. John Frizell’s Fort Defiance in Red Hook, the club has finally anchored down and made permanent residence on the second floor of NYC’s historic Gage & Tollner.
Upon entry, guests will sail away to a tropical paradise featuring nautical decorations and underwater scenes.
The menu follows suit with tons of mouthwatering bites like Nori ‘Shrimp Chips and Accras De Morue (salt-cod fritters). For non-seafood options, guests can order everything from juicy Pork and Chive Dumplings to a warm bowl of Pho.
But onto their most important offerings: the cocktails! Each drink takes influence from bright, tropical flavors, transporting you to a dreamy island oasis with every sip.
Categorized by the strength of each drink in reference to water depth, you’ll want to try everything on their menu from “in the shallows” with their Wave Break mojito that’s an easy drinking cocktail to “the abyss” with a Rum Barrel that packs a punch, “the twilight zone” including a classic Mai Tai, or “on dry land” for non-alcoholic options.
The bar only opened back in October 2021, so it’s still a fairly covert spot. Reservations are not available but walk-ins are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis.
