Located where Battery Park meets the Hudson River, Pier A Harbor House is a 28,000-square foot, multi-experiential food and beverage destination with Manhattan’s finest sunsets and water views.

The ground floor is home to The Oyster House at Pier A which is inspired by the old oyster houses of New York and the fish market traditions of Lower Manhattan. A free-flowing space designed for convivial eating and drinking, surrounded by a promenade with tables for outdoor dining. 

The second floor gives way to BlackTail - the new venture from the award-winning team behind the Dead Rabbit. Sharing the second floor with BlackTail is our multi-room, event and dining experience inspired by the Hudson River Valley foodshed, complete with an intimate cocktail bar.

The third floor, which offers unparalleled views of the Lower Manhattan waterfront and Financial District skyline, is dedicated to special events.

Pier A is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a designated New York City landmark. Opening in 1886 as the headquarters for the New York Harbor Police and Department of Docks, Pier A later served as the VIP entrance for European Ambassadors traveling to Ellis Island and as the main station for the Marine Division of the New York City Fire Department.
