About Venue

Learn more about this venue for your event needs.

Grand Banks is a renowned oyster bar that hosts many kinds of events in New York City. Reminiscent of the 18th- and 19th-century oyster barges, this floating event space provides a truly nautical experience. The establishment is invested in a non-profit organization that aspires to raise money for marine conservation causes. The Space The restaurant is located upon a hand-crafted wooden schooner, named the Sherman Zwicker. This open-air event space boasts an authentic wood-lined deck, with ample seating for up to 175 guests. A bar is centrally situated for guests to use during lively functions. Several awning covers are attached to the ship’s mast and provide shade for sunny occasions. The Captain’s table and foredeck are found at the bow of the ship and can add an elevated sense of privacy to exclusive events. From the upper deck, guests can enjoy sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline while the sun sets on the horizon. The Experience Aboard the Grand Banks, Chef Kerry Heffernan presents expertly crafted seafood dishes. The ingredients reflect the different seasons throughout the year and are locally sourced using eco-conscious methods that are aligned with the company’s firm beliefs. Guests can enjoy an array of beverage options that are included with the catering packages. Some food and drink items may be removed or included based on the particular requirements of each party. The Story In 1942, the finely crafted schooner set sail to join the ranks of the Grand Banks fishing fleet. During its years of transporting cargo from port to port, the Sherman Zwicker made its way north to Canada and back down to South America. After the turn of the century, the vessel became a treasured antique and made appearances at ship festivals. Now, the historic item remains docked on the Hudson River for guests to marvel at its beauty and enjoy dynamic experiences.
