This place was so beautiful. My boyfriend brought me here for my birthday to hear Handel and Beethoven sonatas. I'm not really good on boats so at first the swaying bothered me. Once I focused on the performance I was fine. It's a recital atmosphere....More

Visited end October with a lovely autumnal vibe in surrounding Brooklyn Bridge Park. Great location for River Cafe and Ice cream factory. Wonderful backdrop to hear the Manhattan Symphony play Beethoven amongst others. Just a little different to everything else on offer. Great experience.

I took a friend visiting NYC, it's a nice change from all the touristy things, very local. Amazing musicians and music and gorgeous views of the city and Brooklyn.

Parked just under the Brooklyn end of the Brooklyn Bridge, Bargemusic is, in fact, a barge that can accommodate an audience of about 60. It offers stunning views of Manhattan, exquisite music, and an atmosphere of quiet, unpretentious pleasure. Either before or after, you can...More

Such a lovely setting for chamber music. The audience was friendly and the players really connected personally. The view is lovely. It is a bit disconcerting that the barge rocks and rolls on the water throughout the evening. If you are prone to dizziness or...More

The times I've gone people ranged from business casual to formal. I think you'd feel comfortable in anything's for more substantial than shorts or a bathing suit. Dark jeans and a blazer would be fine.
